As you may be aware, several weeks ago, Bonita and Alberto both contracted COVID-19. Both were taken to hospitals in Cuba. Sadly, on March 30th, Alberto passed away. He is now with Jesus.
Bonita was placed on a respirator and eventually airlifted to Canada. She is still in the hospital in Belleville and very much needing our prayers. In the meantime, we have a team doing an excellent job of overseeing Bonita’s ministry. We pray she is able to serve again soon.
Thanks for your ongoing support for this vital ministry in Cuba.
Location: Latin America & the Caribbean
Ministry Focus: Bonita and Alberto work primarily in the area of theological education throughout Cuba. Their main goal is not to simply teach students, but to educate new professors so that they can effectively teach in their own seminaries. They are also discreetly involved in many other projects as needed.
Ministry History: Bonita first went to Cuba on a short-term missions trip in 2001 and while there, God clearly called her to return and minister in that island nation. Full-time ministry in Cuba had been restricted for many years, and remains restricted to this day, but God miraculously opened the doors for Bonita to minister in Cuba in this way. Several years later, God brought Alberto Izquierdo into her life and they have effectively ministered from one end of the island to the other from that point on.
- Strength and provision for their work.
- Protection for the other projects.
