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

Greetings from Paraguay!
The past fews months we have been busy planning for and hosting teams from Iowa and Pennsylvania. We had so much fun spending time with our friends from Northgate Alliance church in Ottumwa, Iowa and making new friends from Somerset, Pennsylvania. The Ottumwa team worked to build classrooms at one of the Paraguayan Alliance churches and make some much needed improvements to the acoustics and sound system. Somerset held children's medical checks, English clubs, and worked on another construction project. We are grateful to have had the extra hands to get a jump start on these projects.

Please continue to pray!
-Pray for our continued work and ministry in Paraguay
-Pray for the Alliance Pastors and church leaders
-Pray for Bob and Joy Brougher, fellow missionaries, who are retiring and moving back the the States in a few weeks. Paraguay will not be the same without them.
-Pray for the students and teachers of IMAP, (Paraguayan Alliance Ministry Institute).
-Pray for additional teams/worker visits we have scheduled for June and August
