Nate and Nikki’s desire for foreign missions began soon after they married in 2004. After several years working in secular vocations, Nate received his M. Div. and Nikki received her M.A. in Christian education from Reformed Theological Seminary (Jackson, Miss.). Nate is an ordained teaching elder (pastor) in the Presbyterian Church in America.
The Bonham family arrived in Latin America in 2012 after serving in a church plant in Mississippi for almost seven years. They spent their first year in Bogotá, Colombia, where they attended language school and worked with a new church plant. In December 2013, they arrived in Arequipa, Peru, where they and their team began a new work for MTW. Arequipa, the second largest city in Peru, has a population of over 1 million with a very small evangelical presence. There is much work to be done and they hope to serve indefinitely.
Their desire is to see Christ-centered churches planted and believe that this is accomplished by the Holy Spirit working through ministries of evangelism, discipleship, and mercy. Please pray for the Bonhams and their team and consider supporting their work in Peru.
