Stories

Kick off your sandals and stay awhile. The sun is going down and children are gathering. At the center of the village, women lay camel-skin mats on the warm sand and the curious come and sit. Under a blanket of stars, the elders begin to tell stories. Tales of old about great hardships and small wonders, prowling lions and local heroes. A rich tradition of storytelling is ubiquitous in Africa. Here on some of the front lines of God’s redeeming work, we have stories too. Join us, through the sights and sounds and stories of AIM’s ministry.

An Hour & A Cup of Coffee

Unreached peoples can be found in even the busiest, most diverse places, with churches on every street corner. It’s eye-opening and heart-breaking to me, but most of all challenging.

A Part of Your World

A Part of Your World

Language is a gate. My stack of flash cards and the recordings on my phone are proof I’m trying to push the gate open. I’m leaning all my weight against the gate trusting that, imperceptibly, one millimeter, one word, one new neural pathway at a time it will swing open, and I can fully join the hubbub of my city.
