We met in 2006 when Katie came to serve as a nurse in Adonai International Ministry’s clinics in the highlands of rural Guatemala where Aaron and his family had been serving full-time since 1999. We were married in 2007 and have continued serving together full-time with AIM since then. Aaron is part of leadership in AIM’s aviation department and also oversees the maintenance of the aircrafts as well a few local agricultural projects. Katie serves as a worship leader, helps with academic coordination in AIM’s nursing school, and homeschools their four children, Anna, Ethan, Levi, and Genesis.
We believe that true salvation, revelation and freedom can only be found in a surrendered relationship with Jesus, the Word of God, and the active movement of the Holy Spirit in each of our daily lives. Our heart’s desire is that our lives and projects will bring glory to our Father and be a place where others can experience more of Him and the salvation, revelation and freedom He offers to each of His children.
*We are temporarily located in Coshocton, Ohio where Aaron is working on repairs for Adonai’s aircraft, the Porter Pilatus. We will continue to work Stateside in partnership with MMS Aviation until the repairs are complete.
The valley we live in is located in the mountain highlands in the department of Quiché, one of the hardest hit areas during the Guatemalan civil war which ended in 1996. Almost all infrastructure was destroyed including roads, education and healthcare. Yet the families, these people who have become our neighbors and friends, were resilient. Farmers by nature, they have continued to grow crops along the steep mountainsides; attend the schools dotted throughout the villages and towns when their work at home allows them to; rebuild and work on local roads which allow access to the rest of the country on the other side of the high mountain ridges; and make the long treks necessary to get to a local medical facility for births, routine chronic and clinical care, and emergency services. It has been an honor to live and serve in our valley as we seek to steward the tools and gifts God has given us to love Him and our neighbors well.
We believe that there is no higher honor in our Christian walk then to first and foremost partner with our Father, Savior, and the Holy Spirit in prayer! From the bottom of our hearts, WE THANK YOU for partnering with us to pray for our family, our friends and neighbors in Guatemala, and our ministry assignments. We could not do this without you!!
Would you please join us in praying for:
May God bless each of you richly as you have so blessed our family and the people of our valley through your support!
