Patricia Barnett

Pat was born in Kenya and grew up in a missionary family which helped prepare her for service on the mission field. At the age of 9 Pat trusted Jesus as her Savior and committed to obeying His leading in her life. After graduating from college with a BS in Health Science/Radiology and a Masters in Health Care Administration, she worked in a hospital for 10 years before beginning her missionary career in 1980. During that time she prepared herself by taking additional Bible courses and serving in various capacities, including the mission's board, at her home church in California. For 30 years Pat traveled the world assisting mission hospitals in the field of radiology. From South and Central America to India and Africa, she knew the Lord was with her each step of the way guiding and giving wisdom to train nationals and repair equipment. She can remember the exclamations of "wonderful" when old broken down equipment would jump to life again. Best of all, she says, it was an honor to serve medical missionaries who ministered to the sick in very remote parts of the world and lend them a bit of encouragement. During that time she served with REAP International, World Medical Mission and World Concern. In 2009, she entered a completely new season of ministry with AIM, following in the footsteps of her grandparents and later her parents who faithfully served under AIM for 55 years. Now the Lord has blessed Pat with the opportunity to create audio/visual Bible stories and hard copy Sunday school materials appropriate for the African culture. Currently, she serves on the Church Council of her local town church and helps direct the Sunday school program which enjoys over 900 registered kids. Forty five teachers and helpers, under the supervision of Pat and her Kenyan co-worker, Pastor Naomi, teach and disciple the teachers and children. Pat is thankful for the Lord's faithfulness and is trusting Him for grace and strength to continue serving in Kenya.

Fernando and Janaine Basso

The Basso Family has worked among the Bara people of Madagascar since 2013, when God called them from Brazil to enjoy God’s mission among this people group.

Joe and Beth Batchelder

Joe and Beth's journey began in 2011 when God sovereignly brought them together as next door neighbors. Within two short years, they were married and ready to begin life as pilot and teacher. Through the first years of marriage God grew their love for one another and for His Word. Little did they know, God was preparing their hearts to use their skill-sets for missions.

After more sovereign intervention, God led Joe and Beth to pursue mission aviation with AIM Air.  Now with children Judah, Ivan and Sola Grace, they seek to serve the lost by joining AIM in fulfilling The Great Commission by establishing Christ-centered churches among all African peoples through Christ's grace and for His glory.

John and Maureen Becker

John and Maureen have been serving with AIM since 1994. After 8 years of church planting and training Kenyans to reach out to their unreached neighbors, John and Maureen joined the International Office in Bristol, UK. John serves on the international leadership team, as the Director of Ministry, providing leadership in the areas of church planting, strategic partnership development, and global trends. Maureen provides mentoring to new AIM families transitioning to life in Africa, especially in the area of home schooling.  

Beyond AIM, John and Maureen are involved in several other ministries including leading Vision 5:9, a global network representing 180 organizations and 15,000 church planters in the Muslim world. 

John, Maureen and their four children (Kayleigh, Anna, Asher and Alex) love to live in Christian community, practice hospitality and practically display God's love in the local community. They are passionate about serving the least, last and lost, especially those of other faiths who are displaced by war, famine and persecution.

A prophetic scripture they are holding to is: Zechariah 8:23, "In those days, ten men from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, "Let us go with you because we have heard God is with you."

Dale C. and SuZann Beverly

After 24 years working in Kenya, the Beverly's are now working with Africans living in America. Because of their years of experience in Africa they have been able to touch the lives of Africans - primarily students and immigrant families. Their ministry involves, teaching, pastoring, mentoring, community and prison visitation, Bible studies, and general outreach. They have been able to use their little ranch for sponsoring goat roast events, fishing outings, corn picking and lots of potluck dinners. The Beverly's try to go back to Africa every few years to stay connected and to visit the families of those they are ministering to here.

Sara Black

Sara Black will be working as a missionary teacher with Acacia International School in Kampala, Uganda.  Sara has a passion to equip the children and young adults of the next generation to love and serve God. Providing a quality education is the primary focus for Sara’s ministry.  She desires to demonstrate how to live for God in all aspects of her life. Service within and outside of the transitional classroom will be her mode of ministry.

This is Sara’s third opportunity to serve in Africa.  In the spring of 2005 Sara joined the Peace Corps serving as a health volunteer in Kinole, Tanzania. She was able to teach about clean water, malaria prevention, as well as HIV and AIDS prevention.  While serving as a volunteer she was able to attend the local church in the village. Her heart grew to love the people and culture of East Africa and her desire was to continue to impact East Africa after her service with the Peace Corps was completed.  As she left this assignment in the fall of 2007, she felt the call to continue to minister in Africa. So on her way home to Idaho she stopped off to visit Rift Valley Academy.

By the fall of 2009 Sara was on her way to minister to missionary children at Rift Valley Academy in Kijabe, Kenya. She served as a middle and high school math and history teacher until the summer of 2012. While at RVA she enjoyed assisting students in ministry each Sunday morning at the Kijabe hospital (Bethany Kids). Her desire is to disciple young people into a deep love for God and to share that love through acts of service to those around us.

While Sara has been state side since the summer of 2012 she has been able to further her education earning a Masters in Education emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction. Sara was also able to assist her mom as she battled and later lost her battle with cancer. Service to others has been a continuing focus for Sara. She is excited about how God will use her in her new assignment at Acacia International School in Uganda.
