Paraguay

Convinced of God’s love for all, we believe he has called us to be witnesses of his good news and to make disciples of Jesus
Christ where he is least known in Paraguay and around the world. In pursuit of those goals:
• we bring God glory as multi-skilled, multi-national
ministry teams.
• we demonstrate his love among those living and dying
without him.
• we train believers to serve and lead local churches to
grow and spread the Church throughout Paraguay’s
interior.
• we interact with many churches and organisations to
help send his people to where He is calling them to serve.

Communities where Christ is least known

Rural families who are subsistence farmers

Nearly half of Paraguay’s population live in non-urban, dispersed and subsistence communities. Oral learning in the Guarani language is strongly preferred. Using oral methods, church planting teams can evangelise, disciple and train church leaders, regardless of the leaders’ literacy levels, so that these leaders may know and teach God’s Word.

Young churches with young faith

Nearly half of Paraguay’s population are under 20 years old, and many evangelical churches are no older. With such a young faith community, it is critical that these churches be equipped to teach and disciple the next generation. SIM Paraguay is training both rural and urban church leaders in youth and camp ministry. In addition to local weekend youth activities, Paraguayan youth leaders organise summer and winter camps that bring together young believers from around the country.

Indigenous communities

Many of those who belong to Paraguay’s 19 indigenous groups live and die in small, scattered communities without sufficient access to God’s good news. SIM Paraguay is addressing this need by recording Scripture and Bible materials into local languages and partnering with those burdened for indigenous peoples. Also, a new SIM team of missionary families is answering a partnership invitation from the indigenous church leaders to unite in evangelism and discipleship efforts.

Prayers

1

Pray for outreaches through Bible studies and education in communities where Bible-teaching churches do not yet exist.

2

Pray for trained youth leaders to continue using what they have learned and be successful in their local youth ministries and regional camps.

3

Pray for Paraguayan believers to be equipped to lead their churches and organise local ministries.

4

Pray for both new and old SIM Paraguay families to continue learning the local culture and language, in order to effectively demonstrate God’s love and collaborate successfully with local partners.

5

Pray for partnerships with many others to further mobilise Paraguayan churches to send Paraguayan workers nationally and internationally.
