My name is Taylor Wagner. I grew up in Tennessee with my father, step-mother, step-brother and step-sister for all of my high school years and a few years after. It was in 2014 when God tugged at my heart in my local church in Tennessee. I walked to the front of the auditorium to announce my faith that Jesus is my Lord. Later on my father invited me to Rekindle the Flame that same year.
It was at Rekindle that I first met Rick Bonfim. The first words Rick Bonfim said to me are “there is a calling on my life.” A year after, my father suggested that I go with RBM on Brazil mission trip. During the Brazil mission trip Rick Bonfim talked to me about the internship. After the trip I decided to go forward with the internship. Now I’m here at Rick Bonfim Ministries as an intern for a year.

My name is Katura Posey. I am from Conroe, TX where I lived with my parents, sister and brother. When I was 15 years old I was raped and became pregnant with my first son, William, and then at 17 I had my second son Noah. I wasn’t the mother I should have been with them. I went out many nights, partying, drinking and carousing, seeking approval from the world. As my kids grew up, I started realizing that they are the best thing that has ever happened to me. That’s when I was offered a chance to come and intern for Rick who has been in my life for about 10 years.
I went on my first Brazil trip back in June 2010 and was slain in the Holy Spirit but then came back to the States and back into the world’s way. But now I’m here for healing and to figure out how to live in a fallen world and not be scared to follow Jesus.

Hi my name is Kathy! My senior year in college, a homeless man walked up to me and said “God loves you.” He said it like he was telling me the best news on earth. That night, I asked God to have mercy and lead me to Him. 6 months later, God answered that prayer powerfully and I gave my life to Jesus Christ.
The next two years were rough yet beautiful. God preserved me throughout clergy sexual abuse, being taken to court, and helping care for my mom as she battled cancer. After mom passed away, God opened the door for me to intern at RBM to serve and heal. I’m grateful to be here at RBM Ministries and am excited to see what God has planned for the next year! My pet dove, Barnabas, also lives in the office now and helps keep an eye on us.

In May 2016, while I was in Brazil, God said to me “go to the nations; go where I send you; speak and preach what you hear from me; take a wife.” I asked God, “what do I do about this, what is the next step?” Then he told me to “move to Atlanta/Athens” and I knew it was to learn from Rick Bonfim. I’ve been part of Rick’s ministry (RBM) since 2008 and have been on ministry trips to Brazil (4 trips), Cuba, Israel, and various parts of the US. Every time I’m with Rick and being used by God in ministry, there’s no other place I would rather be.
I finally decided to leave my friends and ministry in LA and drive to Athens, Georgia. I’ve been here for a couple of weeks and I can already see God moving. I’ve got peace again, even though my circumstances haven’t changed that much. I’m beginning to hear God again – which has been my greatest desire. I’m dying to myself and learning obedience and surrender first to God and then to authority in my life. I’m learning about commitment and how God works when I’m planted rather than freely roaming. I am where I’m supposed to be and God is moving in my heart and in my life.
