We are convinced that no one should live or die without hearing and understanding the gospel of Jesus Christ in Uruguay and around the world. For this reason, we believe that God has called SIM missionaries to this country to be instruments who reach, train, and equip new generations of Uruguayans for Jesus Christ.

Communities where He is least known

Muslim Communities

Islam has made its way to the vastly secular land of Uruguay. The Muslim population largely originates from Egypt, Syria, Palestine, and Lebanon. There are more than 50,000 Lebanese descendants alone. The first Muslims came from Palestine around 1940. Today, the immigration trend is the increase of Syrian refugees fleeing their war-torn nation.

Most of the Muslims in the country can be found in the Brazilian border town of Chuy. Others reside in Rivera, Artigas, and the capital, Montevideo. Even though many feel integrated into the fabric of Uruguayan society, the Muslims’ traditions and faith have remained largely intact.

Please pray for wisdom in investigating ways to meaningfully engage with Uruguayan Muslims and to introduce them to God, who truly loves and saves through his Son.



Pray for God to use the SIM team to reach children and youth, to train leaders, and to equip the next generation of Uruguayan pastors and missionaries.


Pray for unity among the student leadership teams reaching the students on campus.


Pray for church planting movements, especially for new generations of Uruguayans to embrace the gospel.


Pray for the leadership training program, that God will raise up leaders and use this in the coming years.


Pray for the youth leaders’ training to have a major impact in the communities and in the country.


Pray for our missionaries who are serving in Africa and Asia.


Pray for the new missionaries from other South American countries who are joining us to serve in Uruguay.
