International Missionaries visiting Crooked Creek Baptist

To kick off our Well series this year, we will be hosting American Baptist International Missionaries Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti on Thursday, September 20!

Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti with their children were in Spain alongside the churches of the Baptist Evangelical Union of Spain in their Ministries to migrants, Preparing curriculum materials, and Training lay and pastoral leaders in the local churches. They have been long-term missionaries serving through our mission society since 2000. This third term in Spain followed two terms in Chile.

Recently the family has returned to the United States and will be sharing information about how God has worked in their mission work in Chile and Spain and their hope for a new possible assignment to continue to being God's Word into the world.  

This evening will start with dinner at 5:45 followed by the program at 6:30 in which the Bonilla-Giovanetti family will share their experiences with us.  This is a great way to kick off our pre-Well meetings and hear about mission work across the world.

We hope you will join us for this great evening!
