Phil & EJ Blohm and sons

Serving the Lord in Kenya through aviation

We are Phil and EJ Blohm! We have been living in Nairobi, Kenya since July 2015, serving with AIM AIR, the aviation branch of Africa Inland Mission. We are passionate about coming alongside others in God’s Kingdom work. We have four sons; three now out of high school and one still living with us in Kenya.

Phil has a background in mechanical engineering.  He loves to fix things!  He also loves airplanes. Phil’s role as an airplane mechanic specialist fits both of those things!  AIM AIR flies people and supplies in and out of eight different countries.  The main hangar in Nairobi handles most of the inspections and repairs.  It’s a life line for those missionaries out in the bush.

EJ is homeschooling our youngest, with three graduates under her belt in 2017, 2018, 2019.  She loves to encourage and come alongside new homeschooling mums. She’s the relational one of the family, always ready to hand out cookies to anyone who knocks on the gate. She’s also involved with a ladies prayer group for AIM wives, encouraging them in their God walk and receiving encouragement in return.

Our journey to Kenya took a very long time – ten years from when we first said yes to God’s nudge until we landed in Nairobi.  God has been faithful in every step.  Even in the moments when we felt like we would never get here, God was at work – preparing us and providing for us.

Blinks, Bridges and Goodbyes

On April 2 we said goodbye to our spacious house 291 and hello to cozy house 320 in our same neighborhood. It was not our plan to move; however, budget cuts within our Kenyan region made it necessary. Honestly, this has been a challenging season. Yet in the midst of this unwanted change, we felt…
