Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear Partners in Prayer,

GOD BLESS YOUR 2018 IN UNEXPECTED WAYS! We greet you once again from Asuncion, Paraguay, with a nickname of "Green Asuncion," where we begin a new year with great tasks before us, but with an even great God who is for us! In our eight years in Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay, we have seen a lot of people who are faithfully religious but they do not have a faith relationship with Jesus Christ.

May our prayer be as believers, “…that I may know Him….” (Philippians 3:10) in a deeper way and with a stronger commitment.

Please pray with us for the following:

1. We are both involved in leadership development in the six Alliance churches of Asuncion. Please PRAY for the people we are mentoring and guiding as future leaders as well as doing the same for current leaders.

2. The total of seven churches in Paraguay have been challenged to commit and do more outreach to reach those who do not have a faith relationship with Jesus. We have seen more people baptized recently as well. Please PRAY for the evangelism and discipleship ministries in each of the churches.

3. January is the month that registration begins for the new Alliance Bible institute of Paraguay called IMAP, which translated stands for Alliance Ministerial Institute of Paraguay. Classes will begin on Saturday, February 3 and will continue each Saturday thereafter. Please PRAY for this new endeavor of the Alliance in Paraguay.

4. The Children's Club meetings each Saturday morning of December went very well, with an average of 12 children each week. PRAISE God for a great start! The Club will continue in January so PRAY for more children to come to hear about Jesus!

5. We (Bob and Joy) continue ministering alongside the leaders of the San Lorenzo Church. Please PRAY for the ministries of the church to be strengthened and that the church will grow in maturity of the worshipers and in new people to be added each month to the church family.

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

7. Paraguay missionaries will be having their annual Field Forum retreat January 21-26. Please PRAY for spiritual refreshing for all of us attending: Felipas, Saavedras and Broughers.
