Kevin & Amy Wells
Serving with Africa Inland Mission
Kevin and Amy along with their children; Anika, Titus, and Elise are the newest family that we are partnering with. Kevin and Amy work with Africa Inland Mission in Kijabe, Kenya. They teach at Rift Valley Academy, or RVA, which is a boarding school for missionary kids. The majority of the students who attend have parents who serve in one of over 20 countries in Africa. While parents are planting churches, teaching national pastors, evangelizing, practicing medicine, or participating in a number of different ministries, their children live in a loving â€œhome away from home,â€ and attend a school where they receive a high quality Christian education.
RVA serves 500 students from 20 different nationalities and over 80 missionary organizations. As teachers, (Amy serves as Art Department Head and Curriculum coordinator, Kevin teaches English and PE and serves as Professional Growth Coordinator), their job is to build positive relationships with the students inside and outside of the classroom, in order that they may become followers of Christ and become witnesses for Christ. Just because these studentsâ€™ parents are missionaries does not mean they know Jesus as Lord and Savior. In addition to teaching, the Wells family is involved in numerous other areas, interacting with, and inspiring missionary kids. It is with joy that they minister to these kids to whom God has called them.
Amy grew up as a missionary kid, going out to Africa when she was five weeks old. Her parents, who are currently serving with SIM, have been in Eastern Africa for about 30 years. Amy spent about 18 of those years in Sudan, Ethiopia, or Kenya. She started attending boarding school when she was six years old.
