Bob McAllister

Bob and Alma McAllister have served the Lord in a long missionary career spanning the period of colonial Belgian Congo through the tumultuous upheavals of independence and the major rebellion of 1964 in which their mission lost 13 missionaries. The Christian church was a target for the communist inspired rebels. 

While many thousands of Congolese Christians were killed and maimed, Bob was wounded and Hector McMillan shot beside him. The story is told in the BBC documentary ‘Belfast to Congo: a Dangerous Mission’. Bob and Alma returned to Congo for many years more service and have spent their time since retirement to challenge any and everyone for salvation and full time service for the Lord. Alma has passed into glory but Bob continues his ministry into his 92nd year. Their two sons are in full time mission work: Bill with Congo Initiative and David with Tear Fund in Congo. Daughter Ruth is in USA.
