Pray for Ann and Bruce Borquist, equipping Christian leaders in Brazil and around the world.

June 27, 2012

Ann and Bruce Borquist serve as missionaries of International Ministries ABCUSA in Belo Horizonte, Brazil in partnership with JAMI, the international mission agency of the National Baptist Convention of Brazil. The Borquists equip Brazilian missionaries to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in countries around the world, including unreached people groups in Brazil. They recently returned to Brazil following their U.S.A./Puerto Rico Assignment.

They write: It was sad to leave home, but it sure is good to be back home! If this sounds confusing to you, it means you’re beginning to understand the missionary life. Thanks to the sacrificial giving of many of you, International Ministries gave us the green light to return to Brazil. After our month-long teaching trip in Southeast Asia in March we jumped into that most difficult part of our mobile lives: saying excellent goodbyes and packing up. The hardest part was leaving family and close friends, including our son Asa. We joke that we are experiencing “reverse empty nest” syndrome - instead of the chicks testing their wings, the nest flew away!

After one week in Brasília, we made the 9 hour road trip to Belo Horizonte. How wonderful it was to reconnect with our church family at Igreja Batista Reviver! At JAMI (the missionary training center),we taught two intensive courses called “The Missionary Life” and “Integral Mission,” and helped with JAMI’s annual mission consultation. It is encouraging to see so many young people on fire to share
the transforming power of the gospel. We enjoyed getting to know the 23 students enrolled in the training programs.

The National Baptist Convention of Brazil (CBN) has invited us to develop two national level
ministries in leadership development and local mission outreach. So even though we’re back home in Brazil, we are moving to the capital city of Brasília and starting over as if we had just arrived for the first time - but with 7 years of experience and Portuguese under our belt.

•    Pray for Ann and Bruce as they continue to shape leaders for the church in Brazil and around the world.
•    Pray that God would supply every need, including their need for housing as they establish residence in Brasilia.
