Bruce and Marsha BonFleur returned in 2018 to Mentone, Alabama – the only place they ever wanted to ‘retire’ to – after 20 years of serving the Oglala Lakota people of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation (SD/NE) in Christian ministry.
The BonFleur’s worked faithfully there along with their two children in answer to a call by God to “help restore dignity through the creation of jobs”, and, “to praise Him for a transformation” in a place where predatory alcohol sales was devastating lives. They witnessed, along with others, God move incredibly to both restore and to transform.
Mentone, where they live fulltime, is a quaint village with an abundance of local talent in the form of creative and performing artists. It is situated along the western brow of Lookout Mountain about an hour south of Chattanooga, TN.
After several years of working on a fixer-upper and the property they acquired, the vision to develop the projects you see on this website came after seeking God’s will for the remainder of their lives.
So, whether you enjoy finding treasures in thrift stores or antique shops and visiting interesting places – see The Trader’s Tab; or if you appreciate creative talent and attending concerts – see Nightingale Opry at Mentone; or if you are called to intercede with others in prayer – then consider supporting ATLEAH555 Ministry. You can connect here with all three.
