From February 12 to February 22, 2015, Mark and Ray, along with a missions team from the Marcy First Assembly of God, flew to Arequipa, Peru to begin work on a much needed bakery at the  New Hope Children's Home, an orphanage for abused and abandoned children. The team spent ten days constructing an outbuilding for the bakery, as well as ministering to the fifty plus children who call the New Hope Children's center home.

During the ten days which both Mark and Ray called "life changing," God laid the burden on Mark's heart to begin fundraising for a bus for the orphanage, as their previous vehicle was burned by an anti-Christian militant group. Mark and the ministry is endeavoring to raise $18,000 to purchase a new vehicle.

If you are interested in partnering with Mark Bolos Ministries and the New Hope Children's Home, we invite you to donate to this cause on the home page of the website.  All donations are 100% tax deductible.

Welcome to the MBB blog.  We trust that this will be a way for our friends to find out what is happening with the band, as well as to provide an avenue for us to pass on pertinent information about upcoming concerts, interesting events, or simply to share an experience about what God is doing in our lives.

As a band, we have been so blessed by the many ministry opportunities that have been coming our way this past year, and we are grateful to God for the pastors and ministries that have asked us to come worship with them.  As with all blessings, trials and times of testing follow not so quietly behind, and we have certainly  experienced our share. Yet through those trials, we are reminded  that God is using those to keep us focused on relying on Him, and not on our own strengths and abilities.

Finally, we want to say a special thank you for all the MBB supporters out there, that have offered prayers and encouragement to us throughout the years.  Please continue to pray for us as we pray for you.
