Jean's ministries are varied and include seminary teaching (San Pablo Seminary in Merida), and piano in the music school. Jean accompanies choirs and sells Christian literature during trips to the villages. She often hosts visiting teachers and speakers, and village friends.
The San Pablo Seminary was founded by Dave Legters in 1982, is increasingly under the control of national pastors and teachers. Jean takes her keyboard to accompany, and Bibles and hymnbooks to sell. Jean is semi-retired, but continues to be active in the ministry as the Lord gives her strength.
