This Week’s Missionary Focus:
Many many years ago Ron and Bonnie Johnson served as Pastors in Carbonado. They then went out as missionaries with TEAM for 20 years — to Aruba/Curacao (Northern tip of South America), and now have served 19 years with Missionary Gospel Fellowship, serving the Lord at Joint Base Lewis McCord as home missionaries. They live in Yelm. Hillside helped support them during their time with TEAM.
“We rejoice in the opportunities to minister to military families and the occasional single person like Smith who is a young godly soldier who regularly attends our adult Sunday school class. He just returned from guard duty in Texas at the border and gave us some insight into what is going on down there. He also spent three months in the hot, dry desert-like conditions in Eastern Washington and even had to live a few days in a truck with other soldiers due to a change of plans. In all of this he always has a smile on his face and accepts whatever comes as God’s will. It’s nice to have him in class and see him study the Word of God. Army life is hard on young believers so please keep him in prayer.”
There are four chaplains that currently serve in their chapel, godly men who take turns preaching on Sundays, doing a lot of counseling and dealing with suicide, a problem in the military community. Pray that the Lord will lead these chaplains to those who are open to spiritual things.
Bonnie continues to be active in PWOC (Protestant Women of the Chapel) meeting every Tuesday morning for two and a half hours with over 200 military wives. They have a time of fellowship and Bible Study meeting in small groups, praying, sharing, and special times providing an opportunity to bond with one another.
Please uphold Ron and Bonnie as they minister at JBLM, a population always in transition, and in such need for the Lord’s guidance and direction in their lives.
