Remembering Bob Etheridge
Bob’s powerful faith led him to move his young family to Brazil, where he served as treasurer for the West Brazil Mission of the Presbyterian Church (US). There he faced the challenge of being a layman in a culture where all missionaries were assumed to be ordained preachers. He adjusted successfully to a new language, a new banking system, and a currency subject to chronic hyperinflation.
After serving for 24 years in Brazil, Bob worked for two years as mission treasurer in Kinshasa, Zaire (where cash came in bricks and a careless word could get you arrested by dictator Mobuto’s thugs) then wound up his career with another five years’ service at Presbyterian Church headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky.
