A native Colombian, Bernardo Gonzalez pastored a Colombian church and worked with several missionary organizations for over 13 years while working a secular job for 10 of those years to support his family. In 2011, Bernardo stepped into the role of Colombia National Director with e3 Partners. In this role, Bernardo now devotes all of his energy to reaching Colombians for Christ by coordinating the efforts of different Christian associations and churches to accomplish this goal. His vision is to help grow a passion for church planting in the local church. He and his wife, Mildred, have been married almost 15 years and have two daughters, Emily and Mariana.
Way to Pray: Bernardo's team launched online mentor training during the pandemic and has since been utilizing several different online tools. Please pray that this continues to be an encouragement to the pastors in the network. The Gonzalez family is excited to see the ways that God is continuing to work all around them despite this tough time. Please also pray for Bernardo who has recently experienced the onset of Bell's Palsy. This is a condition that causes sudden weakness in the muscles on one side of the face. Facial nerves are impacted, causing weakness or even slight paralysis in the face. Most people make full recovery from this condition, however, it can take a number of months.
