Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear Partners in Prayer,

HOSANNA TO THE SON OF DAVID! (Matthew 21:15) Hosanna literally means, “Save now”! Yes, that is also our prayer! In this verse, the children are shouting this phrase! Let us all praise God also during this Easter season and every day!

Please pray with us for the following:

1. March 27-29 is the Pastor’s and Leader’s Easter Week Retreat for the Alliance in Paraguay. Please PRAY for a blessed time and for Rafael Candelaria, invited speaker from Puerto Rico.

2. In the San Lorenzo Alliance Church where we are ministering, there will be three special meetings:
--On March 15 the men will be meeting and building each other up in the Lord.
--On March 17 there is a meeting of married couples to pray for one another and begin to build good fellowship among themselves.
-- On March 24 the ladies have their monthly meeting for fellowship with a priority of outreach to new ladies. The topic is “the real meaning of Easter” and the speaker is IW, Lily Saavedra.
Please PRAY for these three gatherings of the body of Christ.

3. The San Lorenzo Alliance Church is to begin cell groups this month. Please PRAY for those who went through training to open up a group in their home. We would love to see this as a tool for great outreach to those who need an encounter with Jesus.

4. The new Alliance Bible institute of Paraguay called IMAP, which translated stands for Alliance Ministerial Institute of Paraguay is going well with a total of 20 students! Classes will continue each Saturday until May. Please PRAY for this new endeavor of the Alliance in Paraguay. (See picture)

5. The Children's Club meetings continue each Saturday morning at the San Lorenzo Church as well as another Children's Club in the Ñemby Church. PRAY for these outreaches to the neighborhoods and for more children to come to hear about Jesus!

6. Please continue to PRAY for direction for the ministries of Paraguay as the Mission works out strategy for the coming years.

7. We are asking for prayer for more international workers for Paraguay! Please PRAY to the Lord of the harvest to send forth the laborers to Paraguay. Please pass on the following information to anyone who senses God’s call to serve Him outside of the U.S. so that person can prayerfully consider these needs of Paraguay!
