Axel is originally from Acapulco, Mexico, and grew up in the National Presbyterian Church of Mexico. He came to know Jesus when he was a teenager. Axel met Janine when she was a missionary at an orphanage in Acapulco. They married a year later and moved to Janine’s hometown of Las Cruces, NM, where they were involved with different missions that were part of the PCA churches in the area. Axel and Janine have 3 boys: Alec (13), Andy (12) and Aidan (6). In the fall of 2013, Axel confirmed his call to ministry, and then did an internship at Las Tierras Community Church in El Paso, TX. After that, the Sotelo family moved to Mexico City for Axel to finish his bachelor’s degree in communications. The whole family is now bilingual in English and Spanish. After recently moving to the Houston area, the Sotelo family is excited to see what God has planned for them and how He can use them here. Axel is beginning his master’s degree at RTS Houston this fall, and looks forward to being in the Houston area for a good while.
