Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear Partners in Prayer,

Our life is in Him! "The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you." Romans 8:11

Please pray with us for the following:

​1. The Mi Esperanza Alliance Church is giving three marriage seminars, April 8, 15 and 23 in the San Antonio Alliance Church. Please PRAY for marriages to be enriched and strengthened by these seminars!

2. In the San Lorenzo Alliance Church where we are ministering, there will be two special meetings:

--On April 9 the men will be meeting and building each other up in the Lord.

-- On April 28 the ladies have their monthly meeting for fellowship with a priority of outreach to new ladies. The topic is “Our Master Teacher” and the speaker is Nancy Lopez.

Please PRAY for these gatherings of the body of Christ.

3. The San Lorenzo Alliance Church will begin five new cell groups this month. Please PRAY for Blas, Ana, Silma, Angel/Claudia and Auberto/Estela as they host once a week meetings and lead these groups. The focus is to invite unsaved family and friends to a home environment, but it is as well for church members. Thank you for PRAYing for these cell group meetings.

4. Sunday, April 29, is a Friends Day at the San Lorenzo Alliance Church, a focus on inviting friends and family who do not know Jesus to attend this special service. Please PRAY for the Gospel to touch the hearts of those invited.

​5. 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 in Asuncion. The great news is that intensive classes are now also being given to 9 students in the Alliance Church in Ciudad del Este!! God is at work in the forming of leaders for Paraguay, PRAISE Him! Please continue to PRAY!

6. On May 5-6, there will be a Marriage Retreat for couples of all the Alliance churches of Asuncion, Paraguay. There is room for 27 couples to attend, so please PRAY that couples sign up to go and be blessed!

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!
