Dan and Miranda Vaccaro

We are preparing to serve at Rift Valley Academy in Kijabe, Kenya starting August 2019. Our family is passionate about Christian education, mentoring, and discipling young hearts towards Christ.

We are so excited to serve at RVA as a family and be able to walk alongside these students in their education and point them towards Christ. We love that serving at RVA enables the Gospel to go forth into so many unreached African people groups as we help provide a safe place for missionary kids to live and learn.

Thank you for partnering with our family as we follow the Lord’s call on our lives to serve with AIM!

Rob and Tianne Varicak

Rob and Tianne Varicak with their son Keenan serve among the Didinga people in Southern Sudan. With the heart for the unreached Rob and Tianne seek to live out the Gospel in their daily lives. Rob proclaims the Good News by showing the Jesus film and doing Discovery Bible studies in and around their community. He also helps meet community needs with practical skills. Rob desires to help the small Church thrive by mentoring and building up leadership making it self-sustaining and outward reaching. Tianne spends most of her time caring for Keenan and supporting Rob in his ministry endeavors. As time allows Tianne does small-scale farming with the goal of creating a year round producing garden, starting a dairy goat project and obtaining a small flock of Muscovy ducks for eggs and meat. As a trained midwife Tianne envisions using her skills part-time to build relationships and share the Gospel with women and families.

Jamie and Kim Viands

Jamie and Kim and their family have been with Africa Inland Mission in Kenya since July of 2012. Until June of 2017, they served at Scott Christian University in Machakos, where Jamie has been involved in theological education. They recently relocated to Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology just outside of Nairobi. Their children are Eliya, Carys, Daniel and Talia.

Joseph and Esther Wagnell

Joe, Esther, and family are serving with AIM AIR in Nairobi, Kenya. Joe is an avionics technician who works to keep AIM's aircraft flying safely, "Serving those who serve." Esther is a full time mom, teacher, and hospitality coordinator. They are blessed to be able to serve the Lord where He has led.

Brian and Melissa Wagner

We arrived at Rift Valley Academy in 1997 for a three-year assignment. RVA has become our home and we love the RVA students. Throughout the years, we have served in a variety of roles: teachers, dorm parents, class sponsors, and a variety of other roles. Brian currently teaches three AP math classes (two sections of calculus and one of statistics), heads the math department and serves at curriculum coordinator, accreditation coordinator and interim coordinator. Missy is the admissions director for the school. Together we also sponsor the Class of 2019.

Debbie Weissenburger

Debbie teaches and helps run Wellspring Academy, an AIM school in N'Djamena, Chad. She has a passion for children of other workers. She's one of three teachers covering 8 grades at this day school. Her current class of 6-8 graders brings her great joy.

Although she claims Connecticut as her home state, she's taught in Africa for 30 years with AIM. Debbie has taught in three countries and schools in different parts of the continent. 
In Chad, Debbie feels like she's supporting lots of families who are participating in many new things God is doing to draw hearts to Himself.

Kevin and Amy Wells

We serve in numerous roles at Rift Valley Academy, (an international school for missionary kids located in Kijabe, Kenya), in order to mentor and disciple students from all over the world. Amy grew up as a missionary kid all of her life and has attended boarding schools since she was 6 years old. She is very familiar with the joys and challenges of growing up in a boarding setting. We are here for the boarding students; to encourage them, to pray for them, and to demonstrate God's love to them. We are originally from the Rochester, NY area and our 3 children, Anika, Titus, and Elise enjoy their life here in Kenya sharing in our ministry.

Lindsay White

Lindsay has a passion for encouraging local + global action through multimedia storytelling. Growing up as a pastor's daughter in North Carolina, the seed was planted early on as Lindsay embarked on several short term mission trips at a young age. Her love of photography quickly developed as she began using her skills to capture the easily overlooked moments in the mundane - the moments that often matter most. In 2016, she served in Latin America for three months where she felt God completely shift the trajectory of her life towards international missions. Lindsay knew that she would use her photography to bring glory to God, and she began praying that He would soon reveal when and where. During this time of waiting and prayer, God began to burden her heart for the unreached, the African church, and the stories untold.In January 2020, Lindsay will head to Nairobi, Kenya, where she will serve long-term with On Field Media - a team that captures the incredible stories of all that God is working throughout Africa and AIM. As she prepares to GO, she would love for you to partner with her through prayer, financial support, or by keeping up with her journey on her website (lindsaygracephoto.com).

Shaggy and Lauren White

Shaggy and Lauren White have three wonderful kids, Shaggy (Cooper), Allie and Harlan. They are serving Africa Inland Mission through On Field Media. They help other missionaries tell the stories of what God is doing through them, provide and create media based tools that are used to share the Gospel across Africa and help document unreached people groups. At the core of what they do, they're storytellers living in a digital age. 

Shaggy has been involved in video and photography since the late 90's and has corporate, government and freelance video experience. Lauren has worked for ministries and nonprofits and homeschools their three children(she's basically super woman).

Robert and Courtney Whitefield

Bobby and Courtney and their two daughters, Paisley and Jaycee, are eager to serve with Africa Inland Mission in Kondoa, Tanzania on a TIMO team starting June 2020. Their heart's desire is to reach the Unreached People Groups of Africa through farming/agriculture and birth support. They are excited to be working with the local church to equip and mobilize local believers.

Emily Wiarda

It is a joy and privilege to serve at Rift Valley Academy. I love getting to do life with my dorm girls and support the ministries of their families all across Africa. Being a dorm mom means that I am there to help with homework, cheer them on at their sports games or performances, celebrate birthdays, make them clean their rooms(!), and encourage and challenge them. As Aunt Emily, I get to walk with my girls through the ups and downs of life. I also love working with our ESL program and supporting our students whose first language isn't English It is a blessing to work with the unique people group of MKs and to disciple them to know and love Jesus more.
