Will Berkley met with our missionaries Jeff & Sheny Walker recently…read & watch the interview below.
I have known Jeff Walker since high school. He was the first person who discipled me after I was saved. We also were in Boy Scouts, when his dad Burton Walker (long-time member at Alderwood) was the Scoutmaster. I also was on the Alderwood Mission trip in 2009 to help the Walkers complete some more construction on their camp in Aquascalientes.
Jeff & Shenny Walker have been part of Alderwood for a lot of years. Jeff has been part of Alderwood since just after he became a Christian as he was starting high school. He remembers a high school retreat in the in the old church building that existed where the current sanctuary now stands. (That was a while ago!) Sheny grew up in Guatemala and was led to Christ at around 9 years old by missionaries, and that gave her an early interest in missions They met as Jeff was finishing his studies at Moody Bible Institute. He was involved in Hispanic ministries and was attending a Hispanic church where Sheny was also attending. (Watch the video for a great story about that!)
Jeff began serving as a missionary 40 years ago; they married after his first year. They have served together in Mexico for 39 years, involved in church-planting and evangelism, building a training ministry facility and camp for adults and children in Aquascalientes (“hot waters”), the geographic center of the country.
Jeff & Sheny have four daughters and nine grandchildren (eight boys and 1 girl). Their oldest daughter Jenny and her husband Sam Hanson also serve in the same town and are also supported by Alderwood.
Jeff & Sheny ask for prayer regarding a group they are working with called, “Extreme Disciples,” and a women’s group whom they are training.
I am happy to have such a long friendship with such a stalwart and dedicated believer.
Jeff & Sheny
