Isaac & Fer Quezada
Originally from a small town in Oregon, Isaac’s family moved to Oaxaca Mexico where his parents served as missionaries for 18 years. He returned to the USA to study music and theology at Spokane Washington. He returned to the Oaxaca area following university where he met his future wife, Marifer (from Pachuca, Hidalgo, Mexico.) Eventually, Isaac and Fer were married in January of 2018! They began working in Oaxaca, teaching music privately and Fer also worked at Casa Compasiva (a birthing center ministry in Oaxaca).
Isaac and Fer believe they are called to the ministry of 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 no songs in most if not all of the indigenous languages in the area. 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!

Peacemaking Initiatives To Resolve Tribal Conflict
Peacemaking initiatives in Kenya are important as they provide a platform for dialogue, reconciliation and healing for people affected by conflict and violence. We are so grateful to Nigerian Ph.D. Dr. Dorcas Ettang, a Senior Lecturer in Conflict Transformation and Peace Studies Programme at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, for willing to provide solutions to some of the challenges KEDHAP is facing in their tribal peacemaking initiatives.
The event was held online on April 29, 2023. The audio recording is available in this blog post.
