Jeff and Jane Boeve

Jane and Jeff come to AIM for the next chapter in their lives. After spending nearly 4 decades in daycare (Jane) and public education (Jeff) the Boeve's are excited to serve at Rift Valley Academy.  They are praying their work experience has prepared them well for this new adventure.

Jacob Borgelt

Jacob serves as part of AIM's Outreach Team to the Laarim people of South Sudan. Serving in the remote Boya Hills region, he and is teammates are working to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with this unreached people group.

Alan and Sara Bouchard

Alan and Sara served for many years with Rift Valley Academy (RVA) before returning to the U.S. where Sara now serves as AIM's TCK (Third Culture Kid) Coordinator, staying connected with the adult children of AIM missionaries.

Jordan and Laura Bracy

We are Jordan and Laura Bracy and we have two daughters - a two-year-old and a baby. We are living on Nosy Be, Madagascar telling people about Jesus and helping to strengthen the church here. We were in Madagascar for a year and a half before the birth of our first child and now we are back, only in a different village. The people in this village have asked twice for Christians to come, but it's just too far away from the main village to come on a regular basis. We are so excited to see what God will do in a place where people are hungry and thirsty for righteousness.

Tessa Brizzolara

Tessa has had a passion to see people in Africa know the Lord more fully and deeply for as long as she can remember. She is excited to be a part of the TIMO team leaving in 2019 to Torit, South Sudan. This team will help her to learn the dynamics of South Sudan and give the opportunity to engage with church partners.

After two years of learning and ministering there, she will continue in full term missions, committed to church planting and serving among one of the unreached people groups in more rural South Sudan.

Roger and Shirley Brown

Dr. Roger and Shirley Brown have served at Tumaini Counseling Center in Nairobi, Kenya since shortly after its founding in 1991. Roger has held a leadership role for most of those years and has seen the counseling ministry grow from a few clinicians to a high of ten therapists in 2014. The Browns were instrumental in the vision, fund-raising, and counseling center construction project that houses offices, loaning library, and seminar facility.

Tumaini is a joint ministry of AIM (AIM Care, the counseling department of Africa Inland Mission) and SIL (Wycliffe), and clinical staff from other mission agencies have also worked at Tumaini. Missionaries from more than 20 sending countries and serving in over 30 African nations have been touched by the counseling ministry. The clinical staff have worked with over 7,000 missionaries representing 150+ evangelical mission organizations. All of the clinicians are missionaries themselves and are experienced mental health professionals who are able to integrate their faith with counseling. The staff are available for individual, marriage, or family therapy, psychiatric evaluations, medication management, traumatic incident debriefings, and many other issues.  

As missionaries are serving in increasingly harsh and sometimes hostile environments, the services of Tumaini are provided with a heart to strengthen and encourage those who are on the frontlines in obedience to the Great Commission. Our vision statement: “Tumaini exists to increase the fruitfulness of disciple-makers through enhancing missionary resilience by offering restorative and preventative mental health and pastoral care services.” Care of God’s servants is one facet of good stewardship of personnel and resources

Roger and Shirley are looking at retirement in 2019 and will be available for part-time service in future years. They are actively seeking more Christian clinicians to support the spread of the Gospel this vital counseling ministry.

Thomas and Alison Brown

We are a family of five seeking to follow God's leading to serve in mission aviation with AIM AIR in Nairobi, Kenya where we've served since February 2012. Tom has a B.S. in Missionary Aviation Technology from Moody Aviation and served there as a flight instructor for the 3 years prior to our arriving in Kenya in order to gain the experience needed to serve overseas. He is enjoying using what he learned to serve the people of eastern and central Africa through aviation. As stated on the AIM AIR website, "The people we serve are working in Church planting, evangelism, community development, medical missions, children's education, pastor training, emergency relief, Bible translation, short-term mission trips and more." Tom is currently (2017) serving as the General Manager for AIM AIR. Ali has a B.S. in Psychology from Whitworth University, and a Masters in Counseling from Gonzaga University, and served at Whitworth as an Adjunct (part-time professor) for the Psychology Department, and in the Counseling Center on campus prior to arriving in Kenya. She has been learning to be a mom to our beautiful daughter, Crescena Charley Brown, born February 12, 2011 and to our son's Bezalel Paxon Brown (miraculously conceived and born in Nairobi, Kenya), born September 22, 2014, and Berechiah Lael Brown, born August 18, 2016. If motherhood and adjusting to life in Africa weren't too much, Ali hoped to serve as a counselor with AIM Care at Tumaini. So far, Ali's plate has been FULL being a wife and mom, and helping with volunteer needs within Africa Based Services (the branch of Africa Inland Mission which AIM AIR falls under).

Tim and Laura Brown

Tim and Laura served at Rift Valley Academy (RVA) in 2008 and hope to return to serve in July of 2018 with their two children, Isaac and Isabelle.  Tim has been teaching physics and physical science for 23 years in Durham Public Schools and hopes to bring his experience to RVA.  As a graduate of RVA himself, Tim has a heart for helping missionary kids.  Laura looks forward to mentoring students, and once Isabelle starts school, getting back in the classroom teaching English to middle school and high school students.

Philip R and Linda A Byler

Philip and Linda raised their family in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, USA, where they ministered medical and spiritual care through Cornerstone Family Health and Agape Mennonite Church for 25 years. When their youngest child was in college, they set their face to the mission field of Africa. They have served in various locations and with different roles, but are presently involved in leading a team of 12 adults and 6 children in an effort to reach the "unreached" Laarim people group of South Sudan.

Corey and Tiffany Carey

RVA is a Christian boarding school located in central Kenya. The academy, a branch of Africa Inland Mission International, exists to provide a quality education in a nurturing environment for the children of missionaries serving in Africa. With over 100 years of rich history, RVA has played an instrumental role in the lives of countless MKs (missionary kids). The current student body of about 450 includes more than 20 different nationalities. The families of these students serve in over 20 African countries.  The boarding program at RVA is designed to give students the best possible living situation away from home, this includes nurturing and supportive dorm parents.  This is our role at RVA.  Our family lives in a dorm with more than 20 high school boys.  Throughout the school year we become one big happy family.  Our role as dorm parents includes fostering spiritual growth, providing love and security as an extension of family, and providing guidance, correcting and counseling.

Craig and Melanie Carlson

It has been our dream for a long time to work in ministry together. Now as we move closer to the retirement chapter of our lives, an opportunity to serve as dorm parents for missionary boarding students in Kijabe, Kenya is before us.

In 2010 on a Sunday Morning, a missionary couple showed a film highlighting Rift Valley Academy (RVA), a missionary boarding school in Kenya. We were enthralled by this place that provided excellence in care and education for missionary youth. 

Missionaries all over the continent of Africa are empowered to complete the tasks God has called them to while their children have a place like RVA to both excel and thrive. Unreached people groups are being touched with the gospel, and Bibles are being translated into new languages, because missionary parents are able to work in the field knowing that quality education is available for their children. 

We are excited to join with Rift Valley Academy. In the capacity as dorm parents, we will have the opportunity to impact the spread of the gospel in Africa while serving our Lord, missionary parents and their students, and Rift Valley Academy.
