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.

The church will stand

Wendy Atkins shares how the church, planted in the southeast corner of French Equatorial Africa, now the country of Central African Republic (CAR), has grown despite rebellions, wars, and consistent country-wide insecurity.

Still gathering, still praying

Sharing the ups and downs

Literacy leading to salvation

Historically, Christian missionary efforts in Sudan, like in other African countries, saw education in a dual role - to present the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ to those who have not heard and to facilitate personal and societal development.

The Father’s hand

Gord Sawatzky talks about the chapter of his cross-cultural ministry in South Sudan, as the AIM country leader. 

The deepest needs

“My heart hurts to see how people are suffering without Jesus.” Tom Desloges, AIM’s Unit Leader in DR Congo shares his conversation with Congolese missionaries Justin and Clement, who had just returned from a stint in one of Congo’s poorest and least developed regions.

A new movement in Lesotho

Neo Moeti was brought up in a Christian household. After graduating from university, full time mission work was not on her mind. That was until one Sunday, when she was challenged by God, through a friend, to step out of her comfort zone. In September 2019 she joined a short term Harvest Team trip to a town on the northern Mozambique coast, a predominantly Islamic region.   

The whispers of the Spirit

A couple working in a creative access country share this story about local believers. Where they live, believing in Jesus is a tremendous risk.

A giant for Christ

Ian Campbell shares one of his richest privileges of serving in DR Congo - to have known Pastor Matayo Odama.

The kingdom of God in our midst

We know what’s really important. What matters is not AIM, nor denominations, nor other institutions that will pass away. What matters is the Kingdom of God. We can’t pin it down – but we can see signs of its being in our midst. It’s my joy to share glimpses and to point to three small signs of the coming of the Kingdom of God among God’s people in Lesotho.
