Mission Ciudad del Este

We must have an open heart towards people who suffer any need, physical and spiritual, 1 John 3:17 says it is doubtful that exist love of God in him who closes his heart to a person in need, Jesus himself heald sick and fed thousands.

The main thing is to teach the gospel to every creature (Matthew 28:19-20), but we need  to dedicate us to meet the physical needs of the community, in Acts 4:34 says, “Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold”, these help were not an obligation, it was not required, but were voluntary, that way we have been moved to give vision care and eyeglasses for 506 people and we shared the love and mercy of God (the Gospel of God) with more than 800 people in Hernandarias and Ciudad del Este.

This was done together Cristo Para Todas Las Naciones (Lutheran Hour Ministries), Most Ministries and The Mission of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Paraguay in Ciudad del Este, since July 11 to August 17.

Twelve volunteers came with Most Ministries of the United States, for the mission Ciudad del Este worked five volunteers to take care of people and every day a group of people from different congregations volunteered to cook lunch, and by the Ministry Cristo Para Todas Las Naciones, from the Staff worked two persons and five volunteers.
