Vision Statement

Tree of Life...for the healing of the nations (Rev. 22:2)

Mission Statement

 

Tree of Life is a non-denominational Christian mission for the purpose of sharing the life-giving message of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to build bridges for the Kingdom, reach out to those in need, build up the body of Christ, encourage and exhort believers, foster ‘unity in the Spirit,’ inspire healing, and deeply impact the lives of those with whom we meet and minister, for the glory of Jesus Christ.

OUR VISION TO FULFILL OUR MISSION:

Tree of Life-Hope Foundation missionaries, seek to fulfill their mission through mobile missionary work, prayer & intercession, speaking, preaching & teaching, praise & worship, songwriting, pastoral counselling, spiritual mentoring, sharing personal testimony, and journeying where there is a need, as the Lord leads and guides. Tree of Life-Hope Foundation missionaries are passionate to share their faith stories, the trials, along with the victories, and the miracles of our Living God! As well, they feel compelled and burdened by the Lord to share a message of humility, deep repentance, and the amazing love, forgiveness, grace, and hope that is only found in Jesus Christ.  

Who We Are

Bruce and Bonnie Rawling are full-time missionaries with Tree of Life- Hope Foundation. They are 'followers of the wind' and friends of Jesus. They live a life of abandoned faith, and they both have a deep passion to share a message of HOPE with the broken world that we live in. So many people in our world are hurting and in need of direction, authenticity, and an abundant life. Bruce and Bonnie have both experienced their share of mistakes, brokenness, and pain; they have both been affected by divorce; they have both been affected by the hurts of our broken world; they have both searched for a long time for a place of belonging; and they have both found the gift…of love, forgiveness, and healing…in the open arms of Jesus.

Bruce and Bonnie have made it their life passion, their life mission, to share their LIFE story with the world: The story of how they found the Way, the Truth, and the Life...Everyone has a story. This is theirs.
