INFORMATION ON URUGUAY AND OUR GOALS

UruguayUruguay is a small, beautiful country located in the southeastern part of South America
bordered by Brazil, Argentina, and the Atlantic Ocean. It has a population of 3.5 million people of
which 1/3 of its citizens live in the capital city of Montevideo.

It is a country that is spiritually dead. There is no official religion in the country though
Roman Catholicism is what most people claim to practice. It is South America’s most secular country.

There is a great need for the Gospel to be taken to the people of this country. With just a
handful of missionaries there, there are just not enough to even begin to scratch the surface of the souls
that are dying and on their way to a Christless eternity bound for the Lake of Fire. With God’s help my
wife and I hope to make a difference, as the Scriptures say in Jude 22, in the lives of the Uruguayan
people by taking the Gospel to them. For generations Uruguay has been called the “graveyard of
missions” and this one reason why it is important for us to get there as soon as possible.

Following are our goals that we hope to fulfill:

  1. Arrive on the field in 2012.
  2. Work with a veteran missionary for a period of time. This will help us learn the language
    as well as get accustomed to the culture and way of life in Uruguay.
  3. Learn the Spanish language
  4. Win souls to Christ
  5. Baptize converts
  6. Disciple converts
  7. Establish independent Baptist churches in Uruguay
  8. Train the Nationals to take over the work
