Mark and Sue Thompson

Mark works as part of AIM's U.S. Headquarters team in Peachtree City, Georgia, where he serves as the Chief Financial Officer.

Joshua and Heidi Thulin

Josh, Heidi, and Miles are a Minnesotan family God has transplanted to the busy streets of Nairobi, Kenya. They serve with On Field Media, a team that captures the incredible stories of how God is working on this continent and introduces the world to some of the 900+ unreached people groups left in Africa. They do this to entice the global and local Church to become more involved in missions.

Why is a storytelling ministry important? Jesus himself was a storyteller. He knew that, through telling stories, his message would easily spread to the ends of the earth. Stories are memorable and inspire action. They are powerful.

In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul sends Tychicus to be his messenger for missions. Tychicus connects the church to those on the field, he encourages the hearts of those who pray and give, and he challenges the next generation of missionaries to join in the work of the Great Commission.

Tychicus' work is now our work. John Piper says that missions is the second greatest human activity in the world. If this is true, then the story of missions is the second greatest story ever told.

As Josh and Heidi work to glorify God in all their endeavors, they'd love for you to partner with them through prayer, financial support, or by following their journey right on their blog (thulinsinafrica.com).

Thank you so much for your love and support!

Blessings,

Josh, Heidi, and Miles

David A and Meredith E Tilly

Since 2005 we have been serving the missionaries of Africa by being involved with the education of their children.  Serving at Rift Valley Academy, David is the IT Manager, which means that he in in charge of all technology on campus, and Meredith is a secondary science teacher, spending most of her time teaching 7th and 8th grade.  That having been said though, let me emphasize that our real job is to love MKs so that Christ centered churches can be planted among all African peoples.

The work that we do enables missionaries all over Africa to do what they do and thus we feel very much a part of their ministries, and together, we will see the nations coming into the kingdom of God.

Judith Troutman

Judi Troutman joined Africa-Based Support as the Associate Director in 2012. She helps the ABS Director in a variety of ways, including overseeing general administration of all Africa-Based Support departments, helping the human resources department manage missionary personnel, and assisting with national staff management.

Judi began her career with Africa Inland Mission by teaching at the School of Nursing in Kijabe, Kenya, where she worked for ten years. In 1997, she began her journey through leadership and administrative roles–Regional Administrator, Short-Term Coordinator, and Personnel Coordinator–in both the Eastern and Central Region offices.

We are Tshepang and Queen, proud parents to a daughter Lethabo and a son Ntungamili. We are from Botswana and South Africa respectively. Before we got married Tshepang worked as a Church planter in Nigeria and Queen in Malawi.

We will be supporting AIMs work across several countries in Southern Africa – Namibia, Lesotho, Mozambique, Madagascar, and other Indian Ocean islands. The Regional Executive Officer role includes, among other things, leadership development, member care, and overall leadership for the region.

Dan and Miranda Vaccaro

We are serving at Rift Valley Academy in Kijabe, Kenya. Our family is passionate about Christian education, mentoring, and discipling young hearts towards Christ.

We are so blessed to be able 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!

They are grateful for your partnership as they follow God's call to ministry in Africa.

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.
