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.

Phil and EJ Blohm

Phil and EJ Blohm and their 4 sons have been serving in Nairobi, Kenya since 2015.  Phil serves as an airplane mechanic with AIM AIR, the aviation branch of Africa Inland Mission.  AIM AIR provides air transport for AIM missionaries and other Christian groups in Eastern Africa.

EJ homeschools their sons, coordinates a ladies weekly prayer time, and helps with housing logistics.  

Although they call Wisconsin home, their long and somewhat circuitous journey into missions took them all over the United States as they pursued God's call into missionary aviation.  

As a family they love to help new missionaries find their way around Nairobi, practicing hospitality on a regular basis.  They have an open door for the neighborhood kids to play basketball or soccer.

Love Boettinger

Love accepted Christ at a young age. As she grew closer to the Lord, a desire to see the world come to know Him grew too. She has a particular passion for the unreached in the remote areas of the world.

Love is now going to South Sudan with AIM's TIMO team with the goal of training the local church to take the Gospel to their surrounding unreached peoples. Her departure will be October 23rd 2019.

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).
