The South American Mission Society (SAMS) is seeking teachers for a school in Paraguay.
St Andrew’s College in Asuncion is a Christian school offering lessons in both English and Spanish to its pupils. The head of the college is Gwen Carlisle and the deputy head is Mags Southern, both SAMS mission partners.
From an English-speaking kindergarten for five children in 1963, St Andrew’s has grown into one of Paraguay’s most significant educational institutions, with around 400 pupils.
Head teacher Gwen said: “The school’s development wasn’t always smooth and there were many setbacks along the way, but also many testimonies to God’s faithfulness. It owes much to the many people who have given time and resources sacrificially in service to God. It’s amazing to see how far he has brought us today.”
