Welcome to the Reach Uruguay Website
Why “Reach Uruguay?” Simply put, “Reach Uruguay” is the simple two-word purpose statement of our team in Uruguay. And to reach Uruguay the team has developed a strategy of focusing on two areas. First is the city of Montevideo. The necessity of having a base in the capital city of any particular country is self-evident. It has the government seats, logistical structure for entering and leaving the country and usually the most people. This should be part of any missions endeavor. The second part of the strategy is to focus on the route 7 & 8 corridors from Montevideo to Melo. This area is filled with multiple smaller cities and towns that to the best of our knowledge have little gospel witness outside of a few missionaries and one or two local churches.
To accomplish the purpose of reaching Uruguay, the team will employ all methods of evangelism and discipleship both new and old to obtain the widest possible spread of the gospel and to permanently establish local churches that are capable of carrying on the work long after the missionary is gone. These methods include, but are not limited to, traditional church planting efforts, teaching in Bible institutes and colleges, and tent making endeavors. The only limitations to our activities will be those presented in Scripture itself.
To the team of BMW missionaries in Uruguay, the goal of “REACH URUGUAY” is not a theory; it IS THE MISSION.

Ministry is a lot like the stock market. There are ups and downs and only with patient and persistence will the investments pay off. This month in Uruguay the investments in lives over the years have begun to show fruit.
Ministry, especially on the mission field, seems to move at a painfully slow pace. You pray that God will send revival, bring in a harvest of 100 fold, but it does not seem to happen. Instead, you often face roadblocks and even reversals.
It's an exciting time in Uruguay. God is working in many lives. Not only in the school, but also throughout the nation. There are laymen who have taken the step of reaching out to their neighbors and are seeing amazing results.
