Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti, “the BGs,” have been used by God in discipleship formation and training in churches in Chile, Spain and Nicaragua. UNIBAUTISTA has invited them to continue this work with ethnic groups in one of the most neglected areas of Colombia, the Guajira Northern Region. The BGs have been long-term global servants since 2000 through International Ministries.

In April we made our first trip to Cúcuta to learn of the situation of so many migrants from Venezuela into our country. …
In July we made our second trip; this time bringing our area director and the global consultant for immigration and refugees with us. Adalia and Ray joined us on a journey through the Humanitarian Network for Migrants from Cúcuta to Tunja.

The ladies of FBC of Cúcuta are embarking on a new endeavor of sewing hooded blankets in all sizes for those who come from very warm weather and face the bitter cold of the Berlin Plateau.
Many have frozen to death in their quest for freedom and safety! It can take them almost a full day on foot to get from Cúcuta to Pamplona, … See why we need to pray and seek resources for more Humanitarian Network shelters along the way? Along with food, a shower, and a couple of hours of [sleep] they are provided spiritual nourishment that is what will last the longest. Let living water flow to these migrants providing them hope and dignity! …
Immediately after that trip to Cúcuta, we had the week-long Global Baptist Peace Conference in Cali, Colombia. Siblings from Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Oceania (more than 30 countries in total), were present for this event …
Summer is almost over, and we were blessed to have a full house throughout our hectic schedule. Now the older children return to their studies in the USA and the younger one continues her high school homeschooling studies. Let living water flow with wisdom, intelligence, and determination in this new academic year for them and us all.
