Serving the Lord in URUGUAY

News from the Sharp Family

The Big Story

With more missionary experience has come more responsibility.. I am an Area Facilitator now. What does that mean? For one, it means seeing signs for Baggage Claim in Quechua during a trip to Bolivia.

To hear more about what I do as Area Facilitator and get an update on (and a new name for) the Canelones mission, click on a link to download our latest newsletter!


  • Thank God for time together as a family for all of our kids, and for our kids’ spiritual, physical, and academic growth.
  • Pray for our sister churches and missions throughout South America. Pray for our missionaries and (often young) national pastors to be faithful and diligent, for the Lord to add many to the number of believers, and that every believer be moved to share the Good News with their neighbors, friends, and families.
  • Pray for Ester, the widow of Roberto, upon his death. Ask the Lord to give her strength and comfort. Roberto heard the Word of God and asked for a Christian funeral. Pray that the promises of God in Christ be a comfort to those who mourn his passing.
  • We are still looking for a more permanent home for the downtown mission. Pray that
    we find one soon, and give thanks that we will be opening a new location in the northern mission in Salto.

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
