Paraguay Couple Finds New Life in Christ

By John Sappia, serving in Paraguay

Allow me to tell you a little bit of what God is doing by sharing Adrian and Myriam’s story. They walked through the doors of the Mi Esperanza Church about a year ago. They told me later that they were immediately impacted by their need to know Jesus better and to make things “right in their lives.” 

The two accepted Jesus as their Savior and have been involved in the discipleship process since then.  In April, they asked about being baptized but realized on their own that that this would not be possible until they were married.  So, in May, they stood before God and the congregation and became the first couple wed in our new church. 

One week later, Myriam followed through in her commitment to Jesus by being baptized.  Adrian told me that he has some more things to understand before he takes that important step. I am pleased to see that he has been studying the Bible with a long-time friend and has been bringing him to church.  Myriam has also brought a number of her friends to church.

My friends, Adrian and Myriam, have come to Christ and are leading others to Jesus thanks to your prayers and support for the work that God is doing in Paraguay!  Thank you so very much!
