Peter and Sally Bartlett - Paraguay

We came to Paraguay in 2009 at the request of the local church to lead and develop the church and its ministries. With the Lord’s help and guiding we encourage others to grow as disciples and leaders.

Peter trains and leads pastors, deacons and pastoral helpers. He is responsible for future plans and regularly preaches, teaches, ordains ministers and confirms new believers. Sally teaches small groups, leads an English-speaking congregation and is on the board of the Esperanza Foster Home.

Call 

To serve the Anglican Church throughout Paraguay, developing local leaders and bringing kingdom life to new situations

Role 

Peter is diocesan bishop, pastor of the pastors, ordaining ministers and opening new paths for the kingdom to advance. Sally serves the church through teaching and discipling, encouraging others to enter God’s kingdom and develop their leadership skills.

We became disciples of Jesus Christ as teenagers. A university prank brought Sally and I together. We soon fell in love and got married. Peter worked as a senior social worker with children at risk, and was a leader in our local church in Doncaster. Sally was a science and maths teacher, and also involved in women’s ministry. We both sensed God’s calling to those who had not heard the good news of the kingdom and with our children, David and Karen, ministered in the Anglican Church in Bolivia for 13 years. Peter was ordained as deacon and priest there. After going back to the UK and serving in a parish in St Helens, out of the blue on the runway of Osaka airport, we sensed a call to live in an unknown place – the beautiful city of Asuncion, Paraguay. Here we love to see others find salvation and freedom through Jesus Christ, and to see believers sharing their faith and growing as leaders.

We joined Church Mission Society because it was important for us to be part of a larger mission movement, sharing Jesus across the world. Being part of CMS helps us mobilise support and prayer for ministry, be accountable, and be encouraged to do the things which God the Father has in his heart prepared for us to do.
