In Baraka, the first ICCM sponsored school in Congo has opened, and it bears the name Linda Stryker Academy (LSA). Linda served for 33 years as a Free Methodist missionary, who held a deep love for Jesus, Congo (her "adopted" home), her friends, and the lost.
Although the children attending the academy will never have the chance to meek and know Linda, by attending LSA, they have an opportunity to meet and know the same Jesus she faithfully served. The academy will be known for its academic excellence. Exceptionally bright children who, because of financial limitations, haven't had the opportunity of studying at top schools now have the hope of a quality education. Well educated, strong Christian teachers will prepare them to have an impact on their church, their community and their country . Those who may not know Jesus yet will learn about Him and how to live a God honoring life.
