    David and Alice Kline arrived in Africa in November 1994 as associates in missions under the supervision of Melvin Thacker. He taught in the Bible schools in Zambia and Zimbabwe and evangelized in different churches every weekend. Over 100 people were filled with the Holy Ghost in their weekend services. In October 1995 the Klines received their missionary appointment to Zambia and Zimbabwe. With doors seemingly opening in Zimbabwe for resident missionaries, they arrived on the field in early 1997. They lived in Harare and were involved in training and evangelism. In June 1999 the Klines moved to Lesotho to help develop the work. The Lord has prospered the Klines’ ministry in Lesotho. Their witness has led to entire congregations being baptized in Jesus’ name.




    April 3-April 9

    Aaron and Tiffany met in 2008 while at Indiana Bible College and after both had graduated, they married in July 2011. Immediately after marrying Aaron and Tiffany served as youth pastor and wife in Temecula, CA, for two years before becoming Associates in Missions to Brazil in August 2013. After that first 6-month trip, they felt that God had called them to return back to Brazil. They both became General licensed ministers with the UPCI in July 2014 and then returned to Brazil in December of that same year. Aaron and Tiffany have continued living in São Paulo and have since gained fluency in the Portuguese language. Together they preach and teach in home Bible studies, the local Bible school, local churches, and conferences. In September 2016 they received missionary appointment, and now it is their burden to reach the thriving metropolis of São Paulo with the gospel, planting churches and aiding the locals in training and evangelism.

  • Stephen Merritt

    Pacific | New Zealand


    July 24-July 30

    The call of God to become a missionary entered Stephen’s life at the age of 14. Two years after this call, Bennie and Pat Blunt, former missionaries to the island nation of Samoa, visited his home church in Winchester, Virginia. Upon leaving that service they invited his pastor, Jeff Dillon, back to Samoa where he was to preach their National Youth Camp. Brother Dillon invited Stephen to join him on this trip; this was his first introduction to missions. After graduating from high school, he attended Gateway College of Evangelism, graduating in 2008 with an Associate Degree. In 2010, he was approved for AIM to Austria, serving with Brother and Sister Robinette. He served there until late 2013, when he transferred to the Pacific Region to work in Samoa as a Bible School teacher. In 2014, Stephen was appointed as an Associate Missionary to the island nation of New Zealand where he serves today.  Stephen was upgraded to Intermediate Missionary in 2017.  Upon return to New Zealand, Stephen will be going to the city of Dunedin, a college campus city, to start a work there. There are already multiple contacts waiting for his arrival.

After accomplishing this, they began to feel the Lord directing them to Chile. They were able to move to Chile in January 2010, settling in the city of Concepcion. It was here that they lived through the epicenter of the 2010 8.8 earthquake. Brother and Sister Hayes coordinated with Compassion Services International for the relief and rebuilding efforts.
