Growing up at Cleveland Baptist Church with Dr. Roy Thompson as his pastor, Robert Mickey, Jr., was greatly influenced by the missions outreach program. In 1978, God called Robert to the mission field. Twenty years later, Robert and his wife, Wendy, arrived in Kenya along with their three children, Charity, Amanda and Timothy. Stephen and Elizabeth were blessings added about the time Grace Baptist Church was being organized. Robert’s other ministries in Kenya include Rift Valley Baptist College, Grace Baptist Academy, Bible clubs, ladies meetings, youth
meeting/camps, children’s Bible school, and care and counseling for pastors and churches throughout Kenya. Wendy works alongside her husband; along with their son, Timothy, she has visited and worked in some very dangerous areas in their latest ministry endeavor, Grace to the Regions Beyond, where churches have been established in DR Congo and Burundi.
