The stories of God at work among the ministries of Africa Inland Mission

Welcome to AIM Stories

God is at work in this world, and AIM is witness to some of His work here on the front lines of ministry among Africa’s peoples. We believe these stories are worth telling – to encourage and challenge the Church, and to simply bring glory to God. This site is a hub of missions-focused storytelling, with contributions from freelancers, missionaries, communications teams, and our very own field-based media ministry. Feel free to share them, as we together “declare His glory among the nations.” (Psalm 96:3)
