Ministry Vision

By faith we see:

  • God using SIM Paraguay as his instrument to bring many thousands of Paraguayans to salvation in Christ.
  • God guiding us to disciple them to form local churches and to become godly and productive members of his Body.
  • God using local churches to impact their communities through his power and the transformed lives of his disciples, leading to a grassroots church planting movement in Paraguay’s interior.
  • God leading local churches to form an association of SIM-related churches and to freely partner with like-minded associations of churches on local, regional, national, and international levels to fulfill the Great Commission in the whole world.

Points for Prayer:

  • Pray for an awakening among Paraguayan churches to obey the Great Commission , reaching their countrymen and sending missionaries out into the world’s harvest fields.
  • Pray that the Lord would bring more missionaries, in particular from Latin America, to Paraguay.
  • Pray for God to bless creative new ways to disciple and train rural church leaders through oral methods.
  • Pray for the distribution of 100,000 Audio Bibles in Guarani to 100,000 rural households to change a whole generation of Paraguayans.
