Ann and Bruce Borquist, missionaries in Brazil
Ann and Bruce serve as missionaries in Belo Horizonte, Brazil
in partnership with JAMI, the international mission agency of the National
Baptist Convention of Brazil. They equip Brazilian missionaries to spread the
Good News of Jesus Christ in countries around the world, including unreached
people groups in Brazil.
The Borquists are presently on U.S/Puerto Rico assignment and will return to Brazil in
They write: Almost daily we receive messages from friends and colleagues in Brazil saying, “Glória a Deus que vocês voltarão ao Brasil em maio - que saudade!” (“Praise God that you will return to Brazil in May - we miss you!”). But a lot still has to happen between now and May!
We are excited about invitations from partners in Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam to lead week-long trainings for them in March:
- At Payap University in Chiang Mai, Thailand, we’ll teach an intensive course called “Social Entrepreneurship for Church and NGO Leaders.”
- For the Myanmar Baptist Convention in Yangon, Myanmar we’ll teach a seminar on “Mobilizing the Whole Church for the Whole Mission of God”
- In Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
we’ll teach an intensive course on “World Religions” for pastors of the
Vietnam Baptist Convention.
We are preparing to
return to Brazil
in May - and that’s only a couple of months away! We have already been invited
back by our partners in Brazil
and have now received medical clearance to return. So at this point, only one
piece of the puzzle is missing. We have yet to reach the financial
support-raising goal set by International Ministries, and the rule is ‘no goal,
Thank you for all
you do to support God’s work here, there and everywhere!
- 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 the financial support needed to return to Brazil.
