A MINISTRY OF AFRICA INLAND MISSION INTERNATIONAL
AIM GLOBAL

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. Journey in with us through the sights and sounds and stories of AIM’s ministry.
