Jeff & Sheny Walker
Julie and Tiffany
How to reach us:
Jeff Walker has been a member of Alderwood Community Church since 1976. After high school, he attended Moody Bible Institute where he met Sheny.
Jeff and Sheny minister in the geographical center of Mexico, Aguascalientes, a city of over one million and in the heart of the least evangelical part of Mexico. Over the 30 years of missionary service in Mexico, the Walkers have been blessed by the Lord seeing the ministry blossom.
The first 20 years were dedicated to evangelism and church planting. But recently the Lord opened the door to start a Christian Camp Ministry and a full time four-year seminary program. They are involved in a variety of ministries: pastoring and preaching, teaching seminary courses, door-to-door evangelism, leading home Bible Studies, Awana clubs, camps, and developing the camp and seminary facilities, etc. Jeff and Sheny’s four daughters have been also very active in the ministry. Their oldest, Jennifer and husband, Sam Hanson, are also now full-time missionaries taking over one of the church plants and helping out in the camps and seminary. The other daughters Amy, Julie, and Tiffany have also been very involved in the ministry in Mexico over the years which has increased the impact for Christ in Mexico.
We are excited about the outreach opportunities we have for Holy Week. For Saturday, the 24th, we will be doing evangelism around our new church plant neighborhood in the morning and the evening with the help of nine seminary students who will be with us for the weekend. On Sunday, the 25th in the evening, we will be having a special Easter week service with the kids’ club children preparing several songs, a drama by the seminary students, and an evangelistic message. Pray for the non-Christian parents who will be coming to draw near to the Savior.
The kids are off school Thursday and Saturday (March 29 and 31), so we will be having outreach day camps at our camp, mainly for grade school kids related to our kids’ club outreaches. Pray for many to come and hear the Gospel and grow in their Christian lives. Then on Easter Sunday in the afternoon, we will be having a baptismal service and church potluck for our church and Jenny & Sam Hansons’ church at the camp.
Two weeks after Holy Week, the kids are off school again, so we are planning more outreach day camps at our camp. We are short on leaders, so please pray that God will raise up counselors and helpers for these day camps. We are working with the older kids, mainly 6th graders, to start moving them toward Christian service. We are challenging three of the more mature youth to be junior counselors for our Holy Week day camps. Pray for God to work in their lives as they begin to serve the Lord, that He will use them and encourage them to want to serve the Lord more fully (Faby, Marisol, and Pablo). Pablo just accepted Christ this last week with me (Jeff). He has been attending youth activities now for about three months. His mom just recently accepted Christ with Sheny and Julie along with several other moms.
Thanks so much for standing with us through your prayers and gifts. We are working in a neighborhood of unbelievable social and spiritual need and very much appreciate and need your backing.
