Michael Shipe
After earning his master’s degree in international business administration, Michael Shipe joined Pioneers International as a missions team member. After a year of raising support, Shipe started with Bajalia Trading Company in the international operations department, communicating with foreign partners on order fulfillment and business development.

Kimberlee Bloom
Africa was placed on the heart of Kimberlee Bloom as a child and, after completing highschool, God took her straight onto the mission field to serve with Every Orphan’s Hope (EOH) in Zambia. There she carried out the mission of the organization to share the love of Jesus Christ with orphans affected and infected by the AIDS pandemic. After spending over a year on the ground in Zambia, Kimberlee continues to serve the ministry stateside as she waits to see how God will take her back to Africa. While in the United States, she lives with her family in Virginia, assists with the homeschooling of her siblings, works for HSLDA in the Communications Department and fulfills other ministry opportunities as they arise.

Tia Ly
Tia Ly is a 19-year-old homeschool graduate and sophomore at Patrick Henry College. She is a CLA Education major and wants to go into the mission field after graduation. Along with her studies, she plays soccer, leads worship in chapel, and helps backstage with PHC’s Eden Troupe productions. After growing up in the Washington/Oregon area for most of her life, Tia’s family moved to Shanghai, China, when her father was transferred there for work. She lived there with her family until 2006, when she came to attend Patrick Henry College.
