Noe and Keila Hernandez

Serving in Paraguay


We are Noe and Keila Hernandez and we are living and serving in Paraguay along with our children Magdalena (13), Santiago (12), and Eden (7). We love good coffee, good movies and good conversation. Our daughter Magdalena (Lena) is a budding artist and can often be found drawing in her notebooks. Santiago enjoys soccer, the Green Bay Packers, and is only sitting still when it is his turn to play on the iPad! Eden is a clever and sweet girl who desperately loves her dog.

A native of Mexico, Noe grew up in a Catholic home and as a teenager moved to the United States with his family. At the age of 17 Noe gave his life to the Lord and felt a call to full time ministry. Keila grew up on a farm in Iowa and gave her life to the Lord when she was 10 years old through the ministry of a Christian radio station.

Both attended Crown College and were married in 2003. From 2005-2013 they worked in church planting and Hispanic ministries in Ottumwa, IA. Missions has always been something close to their hearts and in October of 2012 they began to sense God's leading down to path towards international ministry. They moved to Asuncion, Paraguay in January, 2014.

How you can Pray

IMAP (Alliance Ministry Training Institute) - IMAP has just completed its first year! HOORAY! 18 students finished the year and are ready for the second year. We are currently collecting new enrollments and are hoping for an additional 15 first year students for 2019. Pray for the students, the instructors and for Noe in particular as he teaches homiletics (preaching) starting in February.

The Churches - For the first time ever, each of the 6 churches in Asuncion have a Paraguayan leading the church! This is a huge praise as God is raising up men and women to pastor and lead the believers in Asuncion. Pray for wisdom as courage for them as they lead.

Our Ministry - We are currently working in the church in San Antonio (just outside of Asuncion). Pray for us as we provide support for the Pastor and leaders of the church.

Uruguay - In January our family will be traveling to Montevideo for a conference with Alliance workers in Latin America. Pray that it would be a time of refreshment and encouragement for our family.

Teams - So far we have 3 mission teams planning to visit in 2019! We are so excited to share what God is doing in Paraguay with these groups. Pray of us as we plan for their visits, and for those who will be traveling. Pray that they will have a heart for God's work around the world.
