Rift Valley Academy

If you want to see what is going on at Rift Valley Academy where Allison works as missionary volunteer teacher, you can follow their Instagram account by clicking on the picture below. Our kids often make appearances as Annie does in this picture. Rift Valley Academy is a boarding school for missionary kids whose parents are working throughout Africa. All of the teachers are missionaries, supported by people and churches from their home countries. We are so glad that Allison gets to work there, and we are thankful for the school’s service to our own kid’s lives.

Sophomore Restaurant

At Rift Valley Academy there are projects for each class to build unity as well as to serve the RVA community. One night is called Sophomore Restaurant. All the sophomores and their sponsors (we are some of them) work to plan a menu, advertise, arrange baby-sitting, and then it all comes together in one day while we cook, serve, clean, and entertain our RVA diners. I think it is the funnest thing we have done with the sophomores, and it was fun to watch them all work together to help one another and serve the RVA staff. Allison once again took on cooking responsibilities, and I helped run a small cafe next door that served those who were not able to get tickets to the main event. It was definitely an all day project.

Proud sponsors

Next year we get to be diners instead of servers! I am looking forward to being on the other side.

Chess at RVA

I appreciate the teachers and staff at RVA that encourage the kids in the normal things of life.  Peter looks hopeful in this picture as he takes on the highly regarded Mr. Tilly. A mountain of victory worth trying to summit.

RVA Library

Rift Valley Academy where Allison teaches and where our kids attend classes has a pretty unique library! Scan through some of the pictures below.

Multicultural Day

This was awhile ago, but the pictures are still a joy. All the people of the world living in peace. It is a great hope for the future, when all things are made right! We have so many countries represented at RVA.
