Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear Partners in Prayer,

Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen. 1 Peter 4:11

Please praise God and pray with us for the following:

​1. PRAISE God, the Marriage Retreat for couples on May 4-5 was a blessing to all who attended. They are already looking forward to next years’ event as this is a yearly event for the Paraguayan Alliance churches.

2. PRAISE GOD! for the first meeting for the seven Paraguayan Alliance churches held on May 26 called AFIRMACION ALIANCISTA (Alliance Affirmation) which will now be held yearly. Nearly 200 were in attendance and much praise and glory was sung, testified and preached in this afternoon meeting. A call to commitment to serve the Lord was also given and many responded.

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

--On June 10 the men will be meeting with special guest speaker, Bob Boston, former Alliance international worker in Paraguay.

-- On June 23 the ladies have their monthly meeting. The theme is “The Battle in the Mind” and the speaker is Ana Chamorro. Our desire is for more ladies to attend and invite their friends and loved ones who need Jesus. Each month we have seen new ladies attend and PRAISE God, one lady received Christ’s salvation at last month’s Tea.

Please PRAY for these gatherings of the body of Christ.

4. Please PRAY for the ministries of Bob Boston and Victor Ortiz, from the Spanish Alliance church in San Francisco. They will be in Asuncion from June 6-18 teaching, preaching and doing evangelistic outreach in the San Lorenzo Church and the Mbokajaty Church. PRAY for much fruit from their serving the Lord in these two churches.

5. Noe and Keila Hernandez and three children arrive back for their second term as IWs in Asuncion on June 6. Please PRAY for safe travels and adjustments back to ministry. Carlos and Lily Saavedra and four children leave on June 25 for their first home assignment year in the U.S. Please also PRAY for them and their year of ministry and time with family and friends.

​6. The Alliance Bible institute of Paraguay called IMAP, which translated stands for Alliance Ministerial Institute of Paraguay, began its second trimester (12 weeks) on May 19 with a total of 27 students in Asuncion and Ciudad del Este. Please PRAY for the teachers and that the students to be faithful in attendance and learning.
