Acts 17 tells us that God appoints the times and places we are to hold so that we might perhaps reach out to him. The story of Paraguay is such an example. It all started with the camp in South Africa and Brazil some years ago. Once the camp in South Africa got started people in the surrounding countries began to send their children; once such man was Araujo Frascisco who was leading the church in Maputo, Mozambique. He sent his son to Johannesburg and upon his return home was so excited for camp that he approached Rodwell Mugochi, the South African Camp Director, about having camp in Mozambique.

With the help of the Columbia Church of Christ in Columbia, South Carolina, and Samuel Santos, the Camp Director in Brazil, a team from South Africa and Brazil started the camp in Mozambique. Within a few months after the first camp in Maputo, Araujo and his family moved to Paraguay as his wife is from Argentina and they wanted to be closer (being on the same continent is closer :D ), where he immediately sought out Samuel in Brazil and wanted to arrange for kids in Paraguay to attend a camp in Brazil.

But then the church in Asuncion City, Paraguay decided why not save our money and start a camp in Paraguay and so discussions started happening with Samuel in Brazil, Rolando Obando (Camp Director and Trainer in Nicaragua), and Omar Zamboni (Camp Director in Honduras) and the plan came together to have the first camp in Paraguay in January 2023 with Rolando and Omar and a team from Central America, Brazil and the United States. Very exciting how the Spirit sets things in motion. Praise and honor to the Spirit and God for making this happen.
