Originally from a small town in Oregon, Isaac’s family moved to Oaxaca, Mexico where his parents served as missionaries for 18 years. Isaac returned to the USA to study music and theology in Spokane, Washington. Following university, he returned to Oaxaca where he met his wife, Marifer (from Pachuca, Hidalgo, Mexico). Isaac and Fer were married in January of 2018! They began working in Oaxaca, teaching music privately. Fer also worked at Casa Compasiva, a birthing center ministry in Oaxaca.
Isaac and Fer believe they are called to mentoring youth, church/camp music ministry and “Ethnomusicology.” Ethnomusicology is the study of music as it is found in a given people group. While many of the 120 language groups in the Oaxaca area have the New Testament in their own language, they still sing in Spanish since there are few Christian songs in most of the area’s indigenous languages. Their desire is to help local Christians develop authentic worship music in their own language, releasing a greater expression of praise to God that cannot but help draw others to Him – one language group at a time!
