Phil, Laura Maki, Arleen, and Quique Ajquejay

(From Guatemala) The Lord mightily blessed our travels in Mexico and the USA last fall.   We ministered with a former student, a Guatemalan educator, musician and pastor, Quique (Key-kay) Ajquejay.  (His vocal group from Patzicia was invited to Spain once).

Praise God with us that Laura Maki of Ohio, a talented musician and dedicated Christian, has 97% of her monthly support to come and start her language study in order to teach and minister in the School of Sacred Music at the Central American Theological Seminary in Guatemala City.  She’s a graduate of Cedarville University and has been out teaching in the public schools and is both an accomplished pianist and a fine French horn player, also.

Thank the Lord with us for these two special people; pray for them as they minister the Word of God through music.
The leaders of our mission have recommended that we move back to Mexico to help the Puebla Bible Seminary where we previously taught.  It was also suggested that we consider helping in the Rio Grande Bible Institute in Edinburg, Texas just north of the Mexican border.  Dr. Al Platt, former president of our mission, is on the board at RGBI.  The plan is that the majority of our time will be occupied with writing and recording projects.

  • We’re thankful for the safety God granted to us on the thousands of miles we traveled from  Guatemala to Texas, to Florida, to New York, to Chicago and many points in between!  We were also able to see all four of our children and their families.
  • We’re grateful to our loving Lord for the privilege of sharing His Word in music and message in dozens of churches, schools and homes. Many hearts were touched; some trusted in the Lord for the first time and others dedicated their lives to His service.

There’s no greater JOY than to know the Lord as He works in and through us!

Phil and Arleen
