Stories of Africa’s people

Discover how God is working through the lives of ordinary people to extend his kingdom. Read stories from Africa's people and missionaries, sent from around the world, as they seek to share the good news with those who have yet to hear it.

Transformed lives

Thabiso Matsoso was part of the Growing Nations student programme from 2013-2014. He is now using Farming God’s Way as he serves in Mozambique. 

Called to care

Over the past 15 years conservation agriculture, with its principles of minimum soil disturbance, permanent soil cover and crop rotation, has gone from being a fringe farming method, often laughed at by sceptical farmers, to being a viable alternative to conventional agriculture. Barry Mann, serving with his wife Heather at Growing Nations in Lesotho, tells us why.

A warm smile

Lesotho is a small landlocked country surrounded by South Africa. It boasts the highest low point of any country in the world and consists of mainly mountain highlands, giving it the name ‘The Kingdom in the Sky’. Barry and Heather Mann, AIM’s country leaders, tell us more.

Sustainable Mission

For over 35 years a Christian rural development programme in a remote and impoverished community in Kenya has been literally transforming not just the lives of the people but also the landscape itself. Bill and Joseph share about the transforming power of the gospel in producing effective, sustainable change.

Sparking Hope

Bill has seen firsthand how the ‘renewal of minds’ (Romans 12:1-2) affects our relationships, not only with our Creator but with creation too.

The LEAP (Learn-Engage-Apply-Practice) Lesotho team provides on-field orientation and training to AIM members who may be waiting for their intended country of service to open up or to short-termers who are considering a future assignment.

For the love of trees

In this issue of Connect, we will be spending some more time in God’s good creation, reflecting on how we exercise the role God originally gave us to care for creation while also living out the gospel in anticipation of the restoration of creation.

Who are you?

Here’s a good question: who are you? Defining ourselves is often complex. Most of us have a mental list of our identities. This would be my list: woman, mother, retired police officer, single, British, daughter, missionary… I could go on. 

Trust and obey

Jessica Goldschmidt-Habyarimana talks about ministry as a single woman and how she is trusting in God for the future. 

He is enough

Elle* has recently started serving on the Indian Ocean Islands. She talks about what ministry there is like as a single woman.
