Carlos and Lily Saavedra


Dear Family and Friends,

We write to you with full hearts. We are seeing God at work and we have experienced His love for us in special ways. First our new baby Lila was born in Paraguay and without complication. She is so sweet and such a gift to our family. God has been using her to help us make connections in the community where we live. I (Lily) was nervous about giving birth to her in Paraguay and we can look back and see the Lord’s loving provision and how He kept us both safe in the fragile days of childbirth.

Our small group has been growing and reaching out to new people! We see people being open to friendship and the Gospel! This is very exciting!

We have been involved with several children’s outreaches that have been special. The children are played with, loved and taught truth.

Our spirits are being refreshed! After a year of being away, we have had the opportunity through a gift to travel to NJ, USA to visit our family. It has been a delight to be with my parents, the kids Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins! We miss them so much. Our family has had the opportunity to meet new baby Lila and this has brought great joy to us all. This was unexpected and we praise God for giving us this great gift!

Thank you for praying for us! We so desperately need the body of Christ!

Please pray for us to have full hearts.
Pray for us to trust God once again in saying our goodbyes to loved ones in the USA. Pray for our small group to grow and to know God’s love.
Pray for the church Mi Esperanza as we are looking for a National pastor.
Please pray for funds to be given to us to be able to purchase a vehicle on our return to Paraguay.

If you would like to give please Go to and click on the "Give" tab in the top right-hand of the website. You can donate securely through this link. You can also support us personally in the same way.
