Asunción Guest House & Conference Centre

The aim of this conference centre in Asunción is to provide a place where rural SIM missionaries may stay and rest when in the capital city as well as providing a large meeting place. It will provide workers from other ministries a place to stay when they are in Asunción and offer boarding facilities for SIM missionary kids (MKs) who need to study in Asunción while their parents serve in rural areas.

This centre will provide a conference area for SIM and other organisations to use for key meetings. The majority of those assisted through SIM's ministry are from communities where Christ is least known in rural Paraguay.

This centre will also enable us to place people in those rural communities while their children’s needs are being met and the workers have a venue for renewal, study, and meetings.
