Pray for Bishop Miguel & Deacon Martha Tamayo in oversight of a diocese which in 20 years has expressed its love for God through holistic mission. Pray for wisdom and vision as the leaders aspire to minister in some of the most disadvantaged situations in Uruguayan society.
SAMS Prayer Partner Gonzalo Soria, pastor of the church in Fray Bentos, Uruguay, remarks that “we are excited to be discovering Christ and working as if everything depended on us, knowing that everything depends on Him!”
This includes “restarting the young people’s group, which meets on Saturday afternoons. Please pray for this group, which is made up of youngsters from poor parts of town. We help them to keep up with their school work, and we talk about how to discover God in our lives.
“We are about to restart our community work – one group meets on the outskirts of the town and the other in the historical Anglo area, where the famous corned beef refrigeration plant used to be. Essentially these ministries allow us to carry out children’s work and to celebrate Holy Communion in the suburbs. We pray for the Lord’s guidance and that He will touch the hearts of all those living there. We are able to do this work thanks to the family who allow us to use their garage as a venue.
“We are also starting a new Bible Study group on Monday evenings at the home of a lady who used to be a Jehovah’s Witness. This is a group of people who all came from other faiths and belief systems. The process of discovering God in our midst and our lives is very lively and satisfying for us all.”
