Carlos and Lily Saavedra


We are the Saavedra's. We are serving in the capitol city of Asuncion in Paraguay, South America. We have lived here since 2014. Our family consists of Carlos and Lily and our four children. Our children are Carly who is 12, Elia who is 10, Lucas who is 7 and Lila who is 2. Lily grew up in Millville, NJ and Carlos grew up in Peru, South America. Prior to coming to Paraguay we church planted on the Gulf Coast in Waveland, Mississippi.

Since coming to South America we have been working at a church plant. For the last two years Carlos has been the head pastor at the church plant. Our ministries also include evangelism and discipleship. Our missionary team has started a Biblical Training Institute this year to train up believers who feel called into ministry. Carlos had the blessing of teaching the first class in February of 2018.

We feel passionate about the Love of Jesus transforming both our lives and the lives of the people of Paraguay. We continue to ask Jesus to do a transforming work here among His people. Thank you for praying for us! We so desperately need the body of Christ!
