Generosity to Restore Families

When Yunior Gonzalez came to the states in February 2020 with his son, he had to leave his wife, Marilyn, and their daughter, Keren, in Cuba. It wasn’t until 2023 that they finally came to the states and were joined as a family again on temporary visas, after much paperwork, travel, and expense.

The family has been seeking to complete the paperwork needed by June to get the process underway for receiving Marilyn and Keren’s permanent visas. Having $3,000 for the cost (less than half), it had seemed a daunting task to save the remaining cost of the travel, documents, and medical exams necessary before June. Our Mission family, as well as their sending church and supporters, have been praying confidently that God will provide. Yunior said, “We need His provision to be able to present everything on time.” 

Rejoice with us for the provision of the $3,000 remaining as a designated gift toward the cost of this visa process! One of our other BCP missionary families was used by the Lord to make completing the application process by June possible! We share this as another example of how a relationship moves hearts to give.

Truly, there is joy for the recipient of the gift, but Paul declared more joy and benefits for the giver, “He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way for all your generosity, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:10-11). It’s hard to improve on the beauty of that relationship. Both benefit from loving and generous giving.
