Bonnie is on her two-week mission trip to Brazil. We hope to post pictures and a blog entry when she gets back home.
Although this is Bonnie’s sixth mission trip (fourth international trip), this is her first time as a co-leader of a team. The team of eleven are from Ben and Bonnie’s church. The mission team will be visiting schools and holding events for children in association with Open Arms Brazil.
Most of the kids they will be working with come from broken homes or are orphans. The children often get involved in crime, drugs, and prostitution at an unthinkably young age. Pray that God would rescue them and they would give their lives to God (as many have in the past and are now working with Open Arms).
Pray that God would guide Bonnie and Joe (the other leader) and their decisions. Pray that the team would be unified, safe, and healthy. (Bonnie had a cold before she left.) Pray for safety in traveling and that God would prepare the hearts of the children they work with.
Thank you for praying for her.
