Kenya - Tim & Tonya Vennell

Missionary Aviation Fellowship

As Tim and Tonya begin their fourth term with Mission Aviation Fellowship by moving to Nairobi, Kenya, Tim eagerly anticipates getting to use his newly completed Masters degree in Strategic Leadership in a very practical way, serving as Operations Director. Whether in Congo, Lesotho, the US, or Kenya, Tim shares, "I have a hard time remembering to rejoice at all times. Psalm 118:24 helps me remember that each day is truly from the Lord."

Until August 2008, the Vennells were ministering from the Kingdom of Lesotho in Southern Africa. Tim says, "One of my favorite things is connecting people who have a need with people who can provide for that need. It has been great to do that through our ministry with MAF. We also love having people in our home and doing our best to show them the love of Christ while they are there." Tonya agrees, "We have a saying in our home that there is always room at the table for one more. We plan on continuing to uphold this tradition during our time in Kenya."

Tim and Tonya found their time in Lesotho very rewarding, as they saw firsthand a fast-growing program, saving lives through the medical work that MAF flights supported. Another highlight for Tim was seeing the VSAT technology installed at the clinics MAF serves. Tim worked closely with the Lesotho government for over 2 years, to see that goal realized.

In addition to hospitality, Tonya and the children ministered to the children from a small orphanage. Tonya feels it broadened all of their perspectives and even now helps remind them of what is important. While Tonya homeschooled the children in Lesotho, in Nairobi, they will attend Rosslyn Academy, a Christian, predominantly missionary attended school. Carson will "help" Tonya hold down the fort for another 2 years until he is old enough to start school.

Proverbs 3:5-6 – "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." Tonya says, "As we seek God's will for our lives, trusting Him and what He has in store for us, we can claim the promise in these verses."

God calls the men and women of MAF to serve Him in unique ways. He may also be calling you to a special role in the Vennells' ministry. Please prayerfully consider becoming a Ministry Partner with them through prayer and/or financial support.
