AIM is pleased to announce that as
of April 15, Keith Peters is working
as the missionís full-time administrator.
This is a huge step for AIM,
as we have not previously had fulltime
administrative staff. Having
someone at the office on a regular
basis is essential in order for us to
be able to move forward with our
work. Keith began as a volunteer in
the fall of 2007 and then worked as
part-time administrator while he
finished his university degree.
Keith grew into his call to missions.
In 2000, he went to Columbia
on a short-term mission trip
with YWAM, where he discovered
what a blessing it is to connect
with people from another culture.
The following year he spent three
weeks in West Africa, also with
YWAM, and was invited back by
the team to spend another two
years there. It was during this
time in West Africa that his heart

Besides having just completed his
four-year BA in International Development
Studies at the University
of Winnipeg, Keith Peters
comes with practical experience.
While in West Africa, he was responsible
for overseeing one of the
main projects that the mission ran.
Keith feels that his degree has
greatly helped to familiarize him
with issues in the developing
world, where AIM primarily works.
Keith hopes to help AIM fulfill its
mission of linking Canadian
churches to indigenous missions.
These relationships take time but
are extremely beneficial in terms of
mutual encouragement and support.
Keith and his wife, Lorilee are expecting
their first child in May,
