Your medical training could be a vital link to the rural areas of Paraguay. The subsistence farmers of the region have access to very basic health care of such a poor standard that many people suffer and die unnecessarily. Your ministry would not just help their medical needs, it would also open the doors for you to share your faith and disciple new believers into fellowships that will one day form a rural church.
Rural areas are the last frontier of pioneer church planting in Paraguay. Many communities still have no gospel witness. SIM Paraguay is passionate about sharing the gospel, discipling believers, and planting churches in rural, Guarani-speaking areas and is looking for nurses sharing this passion who would like to serve through medical missions.
Potential opportunities for medical ministry could include volunteering in local health clinics, training local health workers and midwives, running public health education, participating in medical evangelism outreaches to outlying communities, or any combination of the above.
If you've had a dream of practicing nursing your way, Paraguay is the place for you! Be creative. Try something that's never been done before! If you are looking for an opportunity to put your faith into practice through medicine, God can use you in rural Paraguay!
