Mike Donna Brown 2019 PreferredFrom the beginning of our service to the Lord as missionaries, we discovered it to be full of many opportunities to share God's love! We are so thankful for the privilege of sharing Christ's love in a needy part of our world called Bolivia. 

At Berea Bible Seminary, Mike trains future leaders for the church, teaching young people who have a God-given desire to serve others in the name of Christ. Periodic ministry trips to remote regions of the country have provided incredible opportunities to share the Gospel, at times in places where any Christian witness at all is still very new. We continue to look forward to what God has in store for us next in the land of our calling—Bolivia, South America. As a nurse, Donna has used her knowledge and skills to help those with physical needs, taking part in medical campaigns around Bolivia. Now officially retired, Donna continues to support Mike in ministry.
