Chris and Michelle Gennaro were appointed as missionaries with Africa Inland Mission in 2007 and left in July, 2011 with their six children (Julia, Olivia, Jedidiah, Sicilia, Joseph, and Duane) to serve in the tiny, rural village of Molumong, Lesotho.
After a year of culture and language acquisition, Chris taught sewing and knitting to local people at the Molumong Vocational Skills Training Center where he passed on his brilliant skill to them and showed them that God IS a provider to them and that they CAN rise above their poverty with His help. Michelle also learned language and homeschooled.
In February, 2013, after the sudden onset of Encephalitis, Chris passed away and we are SURE he received his, “Well done, good and faithful servant” from the Lord.
Following that, Michelle became the 12th grade English teacher at Rift Valley Academy where Olivia had been a boarding student.
The family is currently based in San Diego where Michelle serves as the Southwest Mobilizer for AIM.
