EQUIPPING THE CHURCH
BY FAITH, WE WORK TO SEE:
God using SIM Paraguay to bring thousands of Paraguayans to salvation in Christ.
God guiding us to make disciples who will form local churches and 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 churches that relate to SIM and to freely partner with like-minded church associations on local, regional, national, and international levels to fulfill the Great Commission.
Communities where He is least known
Rural subsistence farmers
Because farmers and their families live in dispersed and isolated communities, preferring to learn by listening rather than reading, church planting efforts amongst them has been a challenge. SIM is meeting this challenge, placing church planters in these small communities to develop relationships and give people a picture of Christ that they have never known. Using oral methods, they evangelize and train leaders to know and teach the Word, regardless of the leader’s level of literacy.
People Living With HIV and AIDS
Paraguay is not known as a country with a high rate of HIV infection. However, those who have worked many years with people living with these conditions in Paraguay have seen a tremendous increase of new cases, mostly among the poor. SIM Paraguay is partnering with other organizations in order to reach those living with HIV and AIDS.
With a combined population of more than 90,000, the 19 indigenous communities of Paraguay are in need of Bible translations and recordings. SIM is partnering with German Pioneer Mission, Ethnos 360, Latinos en Traducción y Alfabetización (LETRA), and others to provide the recorded Scriptures and other Bible-related materials in the heart language of each of these groups.
Pray for boldness to present the gospel.
Pray for the Lord to bring more missionaries from Latin America and elsewhere to Paraguay.
Pray for continued unity among SIM missionaries.
Pray for SIM leaders to have wisdom and discernment as they serve.
