Gerardo and Bella Flor/Jehovah Shama
Gerardo Antonio Bonilla Piedra and Bella Flor Solís Badilla are pastors of Iglesia Jehová Shama in the impoverished La Tabla barrio of San Jose, Costa Rica. Daybreakers first met Bella Flor and Gerardo in 2005 while on a mission trip to Costa Rica. Daybreak's own, Scott and Dorothy Martin, where missionaries there with Food for the Hungry International (FHICR). FHICR was providing food through feeding centers, one being at Iglesia Jehová Shama.
At that time, Bella Flor and Gerardo were at the point of almost closing the church and ceasing their ministry. With a commitment of $200 a month, Daybreak enabled Jehová Shama to become an independent church, which we still support today. Since that initial mission trip, Daybreak has returned five more times to Costa Rica. Daybreak helped Jehová Shama purchase their first building and then add a second floor to it. On our last trip in 2009, Daybreak helped purchase a second building just a couple doors down, which became a sanctuary-much with the financial and physical help of Daybreakers.
Bella Flor and Gerardo have such a heart for the people in this slum area near San Jose. La Tabla is a community that police refuse to enter, but brave Daybreakers have. The Lord willing, Daybreak hopes to return to Costa Rica.
