Paraguay

The goal of OM in Paraguay is to minister to those with HIV/AIDS, teach the gospel to local children and train believers for global ministry

Paraguay is a small and landlocked country in the heart of South America. Paraguay is a diverse mix of different ethnic and cultural groups. OM has been represented in Paraguay for the last 20 years. Our mission is to mobilize, coordinate and help the local church by providing high quality training and specific ministry opportunities both in Paraguay and the world.  

We do this through programs like EXPOSURE, an intensive missions program. It is a two-week training and exposure program oriented to those volunteers joining OM for short term programs and other people interested in missions. The first week, the trainees are exposed to different missionaries and organizations. The second week, the trainees live with a missionary family working with unreached groups inside Paraguay. 

We also run a children’s ministry to present a global gospel to the kids of Paraguay in a creative and professional way, so that they may accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and develop a heart for missions. The gospel is told and passed on to them through songs, sketches, games, puppets and other activities. Doing this, we are not only sowing the seed of the gospel in their hearts, but also teaching them about the Great Commission. 

Finally, we have a ministry called Conexión VIDA (AIDSLink). Through this ministry, we want to see transformation take place through activities that serve the felt needs of people affected by HIV and AIDS. We carry out hospital and home visits, counseling sessions and a weekly support group meeting with people living with HIV, in cooperation with the professional staff in the Regional Hospital of “Ciudad del Este”.
