About AIMers and AIMKids
What’s an AIMKid?
Our parents came to France as AIMers… so we started our time in missions as AIMKids.
If you’ve heard of MKs… we’re just like MKs
What’s an AIMer?
An AIMer is a volunteer missionary (an Associate In Missions) with the United Pentecostal Church. AIMers give up their jobs and their home, for a time, and go to another country to tell people about how much Jesus loves them.
There are 27,000-ish people in Châtellerault and no other church like yours or ours (the closest church is 2.5 hours away). In our Sunday School there are about 10-12 kids in total, so pray that other kids will repent, will be baptized in Jesus’ name and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
#AIMKids Missionary Moments
…We have created 10 “Missionary Moments”: 5-10min, France-themed lesson illustrations to help you lead kids or youth in missions-related prayer:
- They’ll pray specifically for our AIMKids in various ways, so it doesn’t become repetitive.
- They’ll pray for their own ability to be witnesses… in their part of the world.
Here they are:
