This humble man opened medical clinics and hospitals, helped organize a school for training nurses, did research on leprosy, served as field superintendent for AIM (Africa Inland Mission), and was loved and respected by Africans and missionaries alike. His life of simple faith carried him through the violent Simba rebellion after the Congo gained independence. On November 7, 1990 Dr. Becker entered the presence of the One he had served so faithfully over the years.
