Visit to Eastbridge Presbyterian Chrurch
Thankful with our Eastbridge Presbyterian Chrurch (PCA) family in Mt Pleasant, SC for the invitation to share during their missions fest 2020 “CAN I GO TOO.”
• Friday we shared an introduction of our family and ministry soon after the covered dish dinner.
• Saturday, we shared during a breakfast with the missions committee.
• Saturday afternoon we shared with the youth about the challenge and reward of missions and what being on a short term missions with us would be like.
• Sunday, we shared during the Sunday School time. We were invited to share our ministry and challenge our brothers and sisters from Eastbridge Presbyterian Church to step out and share their faith as missionaries too.
Ministry Update Furlough 2020
Hello from Bonclarken and thank you for your partnership in ministry in Spain!
This weekend our family officially is beginning our speaking engagements for our furlough 2020. Please pray for God’s protection as we will be driving through the East Coast to visit 30 plus Churches. Also we ask for your prayers as we share about our Church Planting Ministry in Madrid and especially as we share God’s invitation to share the love of Christ to those far and near.
Praying that our visits to Churches and donors would spur us all to greater faithfulness and fruitfulness in God’s worldwide mission.

Church Planting Madrid 2020
“It has alway been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.” Romans 15:20.
Juan Carlos & Ruth Bonilla began missionary service with World Witness in 2003, with Ruth serving in children and youth ministry in San Luis Potosí and Rio Verde, Mexico. In 2005, Ruth became World Witness Short-Term Missions Coordinator. Juan Carlos, a native of Ecuador, received his Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Erskine Theological Seminary and was ordained in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church under Catawba Presbytery. From 2001-2004, he pastored in Mexico and in 2008 was commissioned as World Witness Short-Term Missions Coordinator. In February 2011, the Bonillas moved to Guadalajara, Mexico, where they established a Church. In 2014, the Lord re-directed them to Spain and to the work of planting a missional and multicultural led congregation among young professional families in Madrid. The Bonillas have two daughters, Esther Catherine and Sarah Pressly.

"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn. Isaiah 61:1- 2
