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.
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.
