Benjamin & Maricel Anum-Higher
Who are you?
Benjamin: Born in Ghana to a Muslim parent, I am the twenty-sixth child of my father. Now I know that the Lord knew me personally; he set his affection on me and had plans for me in His church even when I was in my mother’s womb. I am married to Maricel and a dad to Jedidiah and Josiah.
Maricel: I was born and raised in the Philippines. I met my husband Benjamin in South Korea, and we are now blessed with two children—Jedidiah and Josiah. My goal in life is to glorify the God who first loved me, called me, and made me a saint.
What is your role at church?
Benjamin: As a custodian, I serve the Lord and his people by maintaining clean church facilities. I do that by performing cleaning duties in all public areas of the building, including bathrooms, offices, sanctuary, kitchens, classrooms, and meeting rooms. I restock the bathrooms and set up for events such as weddings and funerals.

Finish this sentence: Jesus is…
Benjamin: the savior of the world, and he is connecting people to Father God. He shall have dominion over land and sea, and in the Earth’s remotest regions shall his empire be.
Maricel: all the world to me. He is my savior, friend, and intercessor.
