Current Aierdi missionary team (Jan 2018)
We are a group of independent Baptist church planting missionaries in the Basque region of Spain. The team started in 1997 when the Lord directed the Alvarez family to work with the Bonikowskys in the Goierri towns of Gipuzkoa. Through the years other families and individuals have joined. Some have stayed nearby while others have set their sights on one of the many needy communities within an hour's drive. We have never had a written contract. Our bond is simply the fact that our Lord Jesus Christ has led us to combine talents, personalities, and energies to preach the Gospel in the area. We all appreciate the value of the unique Aierdi farmhouse in the development of our national leadership and in the hosting of mission teams from our supporting churches in the USA. Each of us helps in the variety of ministry activities we program at Aierdi, including local church fellowships, intensive Bible institutes, youth retreats, missionary teen retreats, and the hosting of mission teams that come to work on the ongoing reconstruction and development of the facilities. At this time our team is made up of five families: Andy & Mimi Bonikowsky; Juan & Tete Alvarez, and their daughter, Andrea; Mike & Madelaine Dodgens; Danny & Jordan Bonikowsky, with baby Clara; David & Jennifer Willis, Charissa, Danae, Gloria, and Seth.
