Vicky and Mike Koch

Serving In: Rwanda
External ID: 153

Mike and Vicky Koch have been serving with Rafiki for 16 years! They first began their work in Malawi in July, 2002 where they were instrumental in the construction of the Rafiki Village Malawi. They then served in Zambia from January, 2006 through June, 2010 before settling in Rwanda in July of 2010. Currently, Mike is a Rwanda Village Administrator and Plant Manager, and he also takes care of the finances. Vicky doubles as the Village Headmaster and Music Teacher.

In their time on the field, they say that God has richly blessed them and taught them many things. First, life with less “stuff” is pretty wonderful. They have seen God’s children joyfully share their limited resources and have seen God provide for His people’s needs time and time again. They also say that they have learned how precious life is, how varied and beautiful the body of Christ is, and that it is God alone who makes Rafiki’s efforts fruitful on the African continent. 

When asked why they chose to serve with Rafiki, they said they were “called by God through his special messenger:” the foundation’s founder Rosemary! In fact, she sent them a letter yearly, encouraging them to consider the mission field. 

The couple was married on the 30th of December, 1972. Vicky says she experienced love-at-first-sight when she saw Mike in a high school theatre production! Since that time, God has clearly used the couple to advance His kingdom through their faithful work with the Rafiki Foundation.

“To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen”
(1 Timothy 1:17).
