Introduction / History

As in many countries the Japanese were not looked on favorably in World War II in Paraguay. The Japanese were allowed to live in Paraguay in the late 1950s. Many of the Japanese worked in agriculture and live in rural regions. The Japanese Paraguayans speak Japanese and Spanish, the main language of Paraguay.
Many of the Japanese have gone to live in the capital Asuncion and some in other cities and the rural regions. Many Japanese came from Bolivia.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The older Japanese are Buddhists and others in the Shinto religion. Japanese festivals to do with their religion have been celebrated. Later some of the Japanese Paraguayans became Roman Catholics which is the main religion in Paraguay.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Materialism is a hindrance to Japanese spiritual growth. They need to see living Christianity before them. Who will befriend them?


Prayer Points

Pray that the Japanese in Paraguay do not make materialism their god.
Pray for them to have the spiritual hunger it takes to seek and find the only savior.
Pray for loving and dedicated workers to go to the Japanese in Paraguay.
