Project ID: LM0016-65052
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Paraguay called Rev. Walterson Siewert Lang to serve as an Alliance Missionary to Peru in 2019. Pastor Walterson serves as a church planter in Lima’s highly populous Los Olivos and La Victoria districts.
A native Paraguayan, and the first foreign missionary for the Paraguayan church body, he brings multicultural experience and invaluable church-planting skills to the missions in Peru. In addition, his teaching ability, welcoming smile, and warm personality make him a natural evangelist. Rev. Siewert’s experience is a great blessing to the two young Peruvian pastors who look to him for wisdom and guidance.
Pastor Walterson’s parents were Brazilian-born and spoke Portuguese in the home. He learned Spanish in school and polished his English while earning an M.A. at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. This fluency in three languages lends itself to cross-cultural relationship-building across Latin America.
Rev. 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 Siewert family. Lord willing, they will serve in Peru for years to come.
