Serving in a pediatric medical clinic at Rift Valley Academy
Headed to Kenya!
Many thanks to our partners who prayed, encouraged and donated. Working together we are serving God and spreading his love.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
Paul and Debbie met while attending Biola University and always knew they wanted to someday serve together cross-culturally. Twenty-five years later, they plan to move to Kijabe, Kenya to work at Rift Valley Academy (RVA).
RVA has an enrollment of approximately 500 students and provides a safe place for children to learn and grow, equipping the next generation for Christian life and service.
Paul, a physician assistant, and Debbie, a registered nurse, plan to work in RVA’s health clinic, caring for the medical needs of the RVA student body. Paul currently works in primary care in a rural clinic in Northern California while Debbie is a peri-operative nurse. Along with their five children, they will move to Kenya, living and ministering to third-culture kids.
Looking back, Paul and Debbie can see God’s hand leading them towards cross-cultural ministry. Paul grew up as a missionary kid in Taiwan, while Debbie’s heart for other cultures grew during a semester abroad in Costa Rica and short-term trips to Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala. Together, they are excited to use the gifts and skills God has
given them to serve at RVA.
Rift Valley Academy
Rift Valley Academy (RVA) is a Christian boarding school north of Nairobi, Kenya. Established
over a hundred years ago, the school serves almost 500 missionary children (K-12) from 30
nations. The school is a unique place, especially designed to help children thrive and grow.
Having RVA in Africa allows missionary families to serve in remote locations knowing that their
children’s spiritual, academic, and social needs are being met.
