Mike and Vickie Reynen

Reynen Family

Africa

The Reynens recently relocated from Kenya to Togo, West Africa. This move is to enable them to be involved with the start-up and operation of a missionary training institute for African Free Methodists. Mike and Vickie both continue with their supervisory responsibilities. As Africa Area Director, Mike’s work is currently focusing on developing a stronger collaboration among the Africa missionary team, with renewed attention to disciple-making. He also continues to work with national leaders for vitality in their FM work. Vickie is now one of two Regional Coordinators for ICCM in Africa. She works with four Country Coordinators for effective ministry to children in each country. Their children reside in the states: daughters Kelly and Kenzie, and Kenzie’s husband, Jamie, live and work in Indiana; Kyle and his wife, Maddie, live in Michigan.

      “So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.”   Ephesians 2:19   Not long after Mike and I moved to Kenya, we learned there was a community of FMC Congolese refuges living here in the greater Nairobi area.

  • This time last week….

    ….I was in Mombasa, attending the FMCK Women’s seminar (Highland Conference).  I enjoyed teaching, and learning as others taught. We had a great time together–and those women certainly knew how to dance! The conference ended with the Sunday Worship service…and afterwards, since we were on the coast…there were several of us who headed to the […]

And it was music to my ears—praise music! Earlier this year, we received a very generous gift to help fund setting up a […]

  • Rebuilding the Walls

    A few weeks ago, I  (Vickie) had the opportunity to travel w/a team from Moundford FMC in Decatur, Il., to the town of Meru.  Our ministry there included rebuilding the parsonage of the church which had been totally destroyed by fire. Though I’m not a “construction” person, per se, I did in fact, help with […]

We (ICCM) are considering purchasing some […]
