Jonni was commissioned at the 2010 Annual Conference. Jonni has been a longtime member of Emmaus Lutheran Church (AFLC), Bloomington, MN. She is a graduate of Bethany Fellowship School of Missions and has served in Brazil from 1988 to 2004.
Because of health problems it was apparent that Jonni’s mother could no longer live alone. Therefore, she came home to care for her mother in 2004. Jonni’s mother went home to be with the Lord and Jonni was once again called to serve in Brazil. She began serving at the Miriam Infant home and our Bible school and seminary in Brazil as of April 2011.
