Pray for Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti, Training Christian workers in Spain.

February 15, 2012

Carlos and Mayra, with their children, are in Spain alongside the churches of the Baptist Evangelical Union of Spain (UEBE) in their ministries to migrants, preparing curriculum materials, and training lay persons in the local churches. 

They write: We are grateful and aware, which we’ve always been, of the blessing of being in ministry and partnership with our American Baptist Churches who pray and provide for our ongoing support. Little by little we start getting a better grasp of the needs in Spain. We have been connected to churches that have migrants in their midst (like Requena where we provide pulpit one Sunday a month and pastoral care one Wednesday a month—which has opened a door for ministry to women in need. We have been able to continue providing leadership trainings in three main venues (Dénia, Xàtiva, and Valencia) plus occasional workshops like this coming weekend in the southeast (Elche). These trainings open a door for providing materials to leaders as everything we prepare we give them so they can use it with those in their local settings. Therefore, we can say that we are fulfilling the three main objectives of our being in Spain (Ministry to migrants, Preparing materials, Training leadership).

  • Our primary prayer need is for the renewal of our resident permits to be resolved.
  • Our second primary prayer need is for continued discernment and wisdom as we serve with our brothers and sisters in Spain.
  • Our third primary prayer need is continued health and strength.
