A New Life for Cesar

Brenda Boston, Alliance missionary to Paraguay

cesarLast February, Cesar was baptized at our church in San Lorenzo. He works as a panadero, baking bread in a grocery store just a block from the church.

Two years ago, Cesar was an angry, selfish man. He abandoned his wife and two sons to go work in Argentina, and he never sent them any money. Finding herself in a financial crisis, his wife left their sons with her mother and went to work in Spain. Many Paraguayans immigrate to other countries to find work because of the lack of jobs here.

When Cesar reached the end of himself, he returned to Paraguay and found work at a bakery. He began taking steps to reconcile with his wife and children but was unsure how to go about it.

One day when he went to call his wife in Spain, he mentioned to the woman who ran the phone service that he was praying and trying to get right with God. This woman immediately closed her store and took Cesar to meet one of our pastors who owns a small cafeteria in the market of San Lorenzo. The pastor spoke to Cesar and invited him to church on Sunday.

That Sunday Cesar accepted Christ. He faithfully attended discipleship classes and was baptized. Now Cesar is a powerful witness. Recently, his sons have started coming to church. A fellow baker accompanies Cesar, and other friends show up also. Cesar is a changed man, and his friends are noticing. This angry man now spreads love everywhere he goes thanks to what Christ has done in his life.

Cesar desires to be reconciled with his wife and family. Pray with us that Cesar and his family will find peace and unity as they experience God’s transforming power in their lives.
