Praying for Run for the Son

Tomorrow is the annual CMA Run for the Son fundraiser to send motorcycles and bikes all over the world.  Last year we received 10 motorcycles that were distributed to pastors/evangelists all over Paraguay.

Asuncion G. has planted two more churches since he received his motorcycle last year!
Here's a letter we recently received from pastor Justo D.:


April 8, 2011
Bella Vista, Itapua
Greetings in Jesus’ name.  I am so thankful for my motorcycle, KH 200 BR.  It has been used for evangelism and various meetings.  Also, we are using it for our services on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday that I drive to 10 km each way.  The motorcycle has been such a blessing.  It’s my work companion and my ministry partner.  With her, I’ve been able to win souls for the Lord and encourage the saints.

Only God can repay you.  I care for my motorcycle like a baby and I am the only one who drives it.  Brothers, I want you to know that we are praying for you. 

Blessings to you dear biker brothers,

Pastor Justo
Let's remember the bikers in prayer as they ride a 100 mile route in their distinctive states and raise money and awareness of God's love and mercy globally.

  1. Very cool! We in America forget (or just don't know) how difficult transportation is in other countries. Thanks for making a practical difference for the Kingdom! Ride on!

  2. That's cool! I've heard about pastors using bicycles to get from church to church, but never motorcycles. I'll pray that these pastors are able to plant more churches for God's glory!

September highlights. A month in Paraguay

I want to thank you for hanging out with us this past month. Every day was different. Sometimes I wish I had more of a routine. But in my missionary role, routine is not something I experience very often. Here are a few September highlights.

We traveled to Asuncion, to get some paperwork done. The trip to Asuncion generally takes six hours on a two lane road, with crazy traffic. We avoid these trips as much as possible. 

I was part of a Baptism ceremony in the Parana River. 28 people made a public commitment. The Parana Rive is the second one in size after the Amazon River.



I had a chance to continue my bible teaching at our local church on Tuesday evenings. I fill in various classes and find teaching very rewarding.
We celebrated Anahi’s 6th birthday with our immediate family. Anahi is finishing her preschool and will start first great next year


We celebrated Dominick’s 4th month. He also got his shots last week. Dominick has occupied the center of attention. He has been a great joy for …

Technology in missions

As I started my day, within a few hours, I had a list of things to do. By 10 am I had enough items to keep me busy for a week. After several hours in the office, I was able to send audio messages and video conference with people on both side of the Equator. I sent letters out to several people in just a few seconds. I posted on FB, and I googled some maps while listening to a webinar.
Did my grandparents or even my parents have these technologies? The answer is no. David and Lilian Meier left on a steam ship the port of New Orleans in December of 1935 towards South America. All the field knowledge they had was a letter from a German missionary who wrote to America saying. Will someone come to Brazil?


That was the beginning. Their first trip lasted a decade serving in several places in South America. There where no phone calls, no daily FB updates and no cool Instagram pictures. Few words on a telegram, or when letters were written they delivered weeks later were the ways of communica…

A month in Paraguay, Come and hang out with us

Book fair – Freedom of expression
Its was the beginning of the 12th , annual book fair. This event is organized by a local university as one of its arms into the community. Publishers, book sellers and authors come to present their books. Until Sunday Sept 11th, kids, professors from different schools will come and visit plaza de armas (city square of weapons) in downtown Encarnacion to learn and interact. In parallel with the book fair, workshops are going on all day, dealing with topics as wide as social media, religion, politics, team work, biographies, and history.


Just to refresh our memory, until 1989 Paraguay had only two universities in the country. The country was governed by a dictator for 35 years. Freedom of expression could cost exile, jail or even death. That’s only about 30 years ago. Today there are 54 universities, but still only about 4% attending university. People are gaining their voice without fear of repression after two hundred years. You can imagine how these …
