Serving the Lord in URUGUAY

News from the Sharp Family

The Big Story

A smidge over 6000 miles in the van through 11 states, Home Service was a big success! Here’s Angie talking about our ministry in Uruguay to a religion class at Lutheran East High School in Cleveland.

To hear more about Home Service and what’s going on now that we are back in Uruguay, download our newsletter!



  • Give thanks for a successful Home Service and safe return travels back to Uruguay.
  • Pray God’s blessings on Angie’s teaching ministry and the kids’ school year.
  • Pray for Roberto, whose time is short as his cancer spreads, that he would trust in Christ and receive eternal life.
  • Pray for our “single Christians” whose non-Christian families are a source of friction and temptation.
  • Ask God to bless our congregations and missions with renewed strength now that restrictions from Covid are being lifted. 
  • Pray for Aroldo, who has begun studying in the distance program of the seminary in the Domican Republic, that he might grow in wisdom and understanding and use his gifts to spread the Gospel.


Helping us bring Christ to the people of Uruguay

We depend on the gifts of God’s people to carry out God’s call in this country far away from our home, family, and friends. Thank you for your support and care that makes our ministry possible.

You can contribute gifts that will directly support this ministry through Mission Central (click to download an adoption agreement or click here to give online) or through the LCMS Office of International Mission (click to download a prayer and gift sheet or click here to give online).

We want to hear from you!

We love to answer your questions and tell you about Uruguay and our work there. We can’t go everywhere and visit everyone, but one nice side effect of the pandemic is so many more people are familiar with Zoom and other ways of meeting virtually – we would love to Zoom/Skype/Facetime/or whatever with your church group.

Please drop us an email or call if you would like to set up a visit. If you know of a class, small group, LWML, youth group, or anyone who might benefit from a chat with a missionary family, let us know!




We are your missionaries

We know we would not be doing this important work without your help.
For your prayers, support, and encouragement, THANK YOU!

Yours in the True Light,
James, Angie,
Elias, Ambrose, Callie, and Maggie        John 1:9
