Peter & Katy Wilson
Peter & Katy are based at Titchie Swot, Rift Valley Academy’s Elementary school. Peter works as the Principal and Katy teaches Second Grade.
Kenya gained independence from Britain in 1963. Since then British tourism has been a key element of Kenya’s economy, however, unemployment, poverty and crime remain high. Whilst the majority religion is Christianity, Kenya’s ethnic diversity and vast countryside means there are still many unreached with the gospel.
They began serving with AIM in 2002, when they worked for two years as Volunteer Coordinators for the Eastern Region office in Kenya. On their return to the UK they both went into teaching, and in 2009 went to Namibia to serve on an AIM team working with the Ministry of Education and the local church on the Kaisosi Evangelical Bible Church Orphans and Vulnerable Children Project, seeking to serve orphans and vulnerable children. In summer 2010 they returned to working in the Eastern Region office as Short Term Coordinators, and in 2012 joined a team seeking to reach the unreached on one of the islands in the Indian Ocean.
In December 2013, Peter & Katy returned to serve in Kenya again, this time at Titchie Swot, seeking to serve mission partners through educating and discipling their children.
“Having worked among a Muslim people group on an Indian Ocean Island we came to a point where we sensed the Lord taking us away from that for a season, largely due to sickness and our kids’ educational needs. God has led us to Rift Valley Academy (RVA), AIM’s boarding school in Kenya. Here, we have the privilege of supporting families who, like we did, live in remote or difficult places, often places where there are no good educational options. Through RVA we now have the opportunity to help numerous families stay in their remote locations, serving to reach unreached people groups in a way they couldn’t do without educational support. Instead of having to go home for their children’s education, missionary parents are able to send their children to RVA, a place where they can be assured of the Christian teaching they receive. We are therefore more than teachers here. We are parents, coaches and mentors. While we have a desire to see all the nations God has made come before him in worship, for this season we have this wonderful privilege of discipling future missionaries here.”

Latest prayer points

“Every year we take a day to celebrate our diversity and unity [at Rift Valley Academy (RVA)]. This year, we had a mere 27 passport countries represented! Daniel was chosen to carry the Scottish flag. Each country is cheered as a representative carries their flag into the room, many dress in their national dress, and then we have a fun-filled day getting a little glimpse of heaven.” Praise God that the students and teachers at RVA get a taste of what it will be like for people from every nation to be in heaven together, and pray that they will continue to delight in the unity we have in Jesus and love people from other cultures and backgrounds.

Pete & Katy have just returned to Kenya after a short Home Assignment. Peter writes, “I sit here at 6.30am back in Kenya typing this, having been up for several hours. The joys of jet lag! Tomorrow [24th August] our new students arrive and on Saturday [25th August] our returning students will be back. The craziness is about to begin all over again! Please pray for the upcoming school year. Pray for all our new students and staff as they adjust to Rift Valley Academy.”

“Daniel has expressed an interest in baptism and may be baptised at the end of this term. His Big Brother from the programme we run here where Big Brothers/Sisters from the High School spend time each month with their Little Brothers/Sisters from the Elementary/Primary School is getting baptised and I may get to baptise them both. Please pray for our staffing needs for next year. We need either another 6th grade Teacher (P7) or a High School Math Teacher as we have someone already that can do either. We also need a Male Counsellor and a French Teacher.”
