Amanda Burdick

The Lord began to stir Amanda's heart for missions back in 2008, beginning with several short term mission trips to Haiti. She loved Haiti but knew God wasn’t calling her there long term. Those were followed by a short-term trip to China which God used to open her eyes to the great need of unreached people groups to hear the gospel.

For the next four years, from 2012 to 2016, she served in Laos and saw God do amazing things in the hearts and lives of Lao people. At the end of those four years, Amanda returned to the US for a year of home assignment and began studying for a Master's in Church Planting at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. During this time, God began burdening her heart for Muslims and equipping her to serve them.

A door was opened to serve with Africa Inland Mission amongst the Coastal Swahili people of Tanzania. Her greatest joy is making Christ known among those who have never heard!

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.

Timothy and Jennifer Carroll

Tim and Jennifer Carroll first joined Africa Inland Mission in 1984 to work with Missionary Kids at the Rift Valley Academy, Kijabe, Kenya.  In 1993, they moved to Nairobi to facilitate the placement and care of short-term missionaries.  In 2000 Tim transitioned to a full-time pastoral care and counseling role for AIM missionaries, and in June 2009 was seconded to the Mobile Member Care Team to facilitate the formation of a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary team to provide member care training, consulting, coaching, debriefing, counseling and crisis response for cross-cultural Christian workers in the greater East Africa region. Jennifer’s focus has been on ministry outreach through childbirth education and maternal-newborn health programs.

Since returning to the USA in May 2010 to care for aging parents, Tim continues to be actively involved in missionary member care and Jen continues to be involved in outreach through maternal-newborn health education and support. Tim has completed his M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and is working toward full licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor. He continues to be involved in providing training, consulting, debriefing, counseling, crisis care and member care support. Jennifer continues to be actively involved in international ministry through childbirth education and maternal-newborn health programs training childbirth educators, labor support specialists, lactation educators, breastfeeding counselors and bereavement support counselors for perinatal loss.

The Carroll’s have three married adult daughters and six grandchildren.


Chip and Becky Carter

Chip and Becky Carter's love for missionary kids makes their ministry at Rift Valley Academy a perfect fit! R.V.A. serves roughly 500 students of more than two dozen nationalities, in kindergarten through 12th grade. Most of the students are children of missionaries. R.V.A. enables missionaries to remain in Africa by providing quality education in a nurturing environment for their children.

Becky taught at the school for six years as a single missionary, and returned with Chip and their three children in 2003.

Chip, a nurse, works in the school's infirmary while Becky teaches first grade. Beyond these primary responsibilities, they find ample opportunities to invest in kids' lives. From one-on-one mentoring to sharing pizza dinners to leading large group fun, the Carters purpose to point students to Christ.

Brett and Rebekah Chamberlin

Brett and Rebekah were married in 2016 and were sent by their church to West Africa for six months in 2017. After that short term, they really felt God calling them to full-term missions in Africa among unreached people groups. They have accepted that calling and look forward to serving on the Southern Tanzanian coast where they will be proclaiming the gospel and making disciples amongst the almost one million unreached coastal Swahili people group.

Taylor and Anne Chase

Taylor and Anne serve as part of AIM's ministry at Rift Valley Academy (RVA) in Kenya. RVA is a Christian boarding school in central Kenya with over a hundred years of rich history. The school serves about 500 missionary children representing 30 nationalities and 80 mission organizations and churches.

Bob and Jennifer Chedester

We love East Africa and been blessed to serve here for many years!

We initially served in Uganda in a remote area, and now support others who serve in remote areas so the gospel continues to move forward. We love RVA (Rift Valley Academy) and are grateful to know how important this type of ministry is since we served in such an area previously.

Bob is involved with Staff Services & Student Immigration keeping work permits, student visas and other documents legal for all the staff and students. Jennifer serves in Physical Therapy at RVA and at the Kijabe Hospital below the school along with doing some teaching and coaching at the school. We both enjoy hanging out with students.  

We have been blessed with 5 children who have attended RVA - 3 graduates (Sarah, Elizabeth & Jon). We are in the US for the 2018-19 school year getting Jon settled in college after being in Kenya for 4 years. In August 2019 we will return to RVA in Kenya with 2 children: Rebecca will be a senior and Samuel will be in 9th grade.  Pray for wisdom as we seek God’s direction when Rebecca graduates.

Cameron and Jessica Cheke

There is no greater joy than collaborating with God and following His leading!  God has walked our family through an exciting journey over the last 2 years, preparing us to partner with Him in ministry overseas.  Please pray with us in asking God to do only what He can, preparing the hearts of those to whom we will serve in Africa.

Adam and Heather Cheney

The Cheney’s are a family of 9 and have been working with AIM for five years.  The Cheney’s have been working with the Digo people on the Southern coast of Kenya since January 2015. 

Currently, the Cheney’s are transitioning to a new assignment working with the African Diaspora in Southern Spain. The Cheney’s will be working with a local Spanish church and NGO as they interact with the many Africans who reside in Southern Spain. 

The focus of their ministry will be on supporting and seeing churches established specifically among unreached people groups. This will be accomplished through broad evangelism, discipleship and partnering with the local church. The Cheney’s plan is to begin ministry in Spain in January 2020.

Angus K.W. and Carol Chu
