Pray for Ann and Bruce Borquist, equipping Christian leaders in Brazil and around the world.

February 22, 2012

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 May. 

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, no go.’ 

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.
