Posted on June 13, 2018 Pray for Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti serving in Columbia in ministries of discipleship formation and training of leaders.

Carlos and Mayra have been used by God in discipleship formation and training in churches in Chile, Spain and Nicaragua. UNIBAUTISTA has invited them to continue this work with ethnic groups in one of the most neglected areas of Colombia, the Guajira Northern Region.

They write – Ecclesiastes 4.12 (ESV) encourages us as follows: “And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Therefore, when we look at our new assignment to Colombia, we are excited and encouraged by the opportunity God is providing you and us to join Him in service to so many in that country. Our three-fold assignment will include, but will not be limited to, the following:

Thanks to all who participated in the 2018 Spring Matching Gift Challenge, we received an encouraging boost to our ongoing support! We still need to secure 100% of committed gifts to underwrite our personalized support goal for Colombia. Our “triangle of life” is our beloved churches and siblings in Puerto Rico and in the USA that provide what is needed for us to serve in Colombia. We pray for new and increased giving to bring us to the departure line and keep us serving throughout the whole term.

We are anchored in God’s promises to provide and to honor Romans 10.11 (ESV) “For the Scripture says, ‘Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.’” We trust Him to provide through you as He has provided these 18 years. May the Lord nudge you to be on one of the sides of our triangle of life. Our Wayuu siblings, Pablo, Luz Amparo, and Arnulfo are waiting. Will you bring us to the departure line?

Meanwhile, we continue to work from our temp home and serve where the Lord leads. We just returned from a week of service in Puerto Rico where our Indiana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and West Virginia siblings participated in the “Rebuilding, Restoring, and Renewing” initiative. Lots was improved in four different churches, but there continues to be great need for more support through donations and volunteer groups
