Our beloved sister and aunt, Bonita Woods Jones, 57, transitioned to her home in heaven on Wednesday, October 20, 2021. 
Born October 4, 1964, in Asheville, NC, Bonita was the daughter of the late Darnell Woods and Sarah Logan Woods. She is most fondly remembered as an ambassador for Christ, and for her love for missions, teaching, music, and the arts.

Bonita gave her life to Christ in 1997 and in 2002 graduated from Spirit Life Bible College, Irvine, CA. She served eight years as a missionary in Guatemala and Jakarta, Indonesia. She taught high school English and is credited with starting the performing arts program at Morning Star Academy in Jakarta. 

In 2009, Bonita returned to the United States to care for her mother until she passed in 2010. Bonita reunited with her high school sweetheart, Terry Jones, and they married in 2013. Bonita returned to Winston-Salem and faithfully served in ministry at Praise Assembly Church and also taught elementary students at Quality Education Academy. She moved to Charlotte,
