Missionary Appointees to Uruguay
Matias Acevedo: I was born on April 11, 1985 in Montevideo, Uruguay. I grew up in a christian family. My father was a pastor and my mother was a sunday school teacher. At the age of 10, I became sick with leukemia. Praise the Lord, God healed me of this sickness but Satan was attacking my family very strongly during this time. My parents divorced, but that did not prevent my mom to continue raising us in the way of the Lord. At the age of 12, Christ saved me, and at the age of 18, He called me to missions, since then he has been preparing me for His work.
Bethany Acevedo: I was born on June 16, 1988 in Western NY, I grew up in a christian family, and was saved at a young age. At 19 years old, the Lord began preparing me to serve him full time. I studied the bible and learned spanish in the GAP program in Costa Rica. One year later I went to the Dominican Republic and served the Lord in a SCORE internship program. I then later served in the DR as a missionary for 2 years.
God brought us both to the Dominican Republic in 2009 where we first met and we were married in 2011. We have been blessed with two children, Amelia and Elliott. God has burdened our hearts for the people of Uruguay. Our desire is to help people know and follow Christ.
