The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Paraguay called Rev. Waterson Junior Siewert Lang to serve as an alliance missionary to Peru in 2019. A native Paraguayan, and the first foreign missionary for the Paraguayan church body, he brings multicultural experience and invaluable church planting skills to the young ministry team serving in Peru. His parents were Brazilian-born and spoke Portuguese in the home. He learned Spanish in school, and he polished his English earning an M.A. at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO. This fluency in three languages lends itself to cross-cultural relationship building across all North and South America.
Pastor Siewert serves missions in Lima’s highly populous Los Olivos district as well as La Victoria. Siewert’s ever-present smile and warm personality make him a natural evangelist; the Peruvian Lutheran missions thrive under his leadership. He is shining Christ’s light in one of Latin America’s largest cities.
Siewert married Peruvian national Estefania in 2017, so their daughter Isabella has dual citizenship. Given the proximity of family and friends, Peru feels like home for the Siewerts. Lord willing, they will serve in Peru for years to come.
