As a veterinarian you have access to the lives and hearts of these rural people in ways that few other missionaries ever have. You would be able to build friendship evangelism opportunities and discipleship relationships both in the rural villages and in the population centre where you would be living. A small fellowship of new believers would in time grow into a rural church. SIM Paraguay has some experience in this approach and you could learn from (and improve on) what has been done. As far as is possible we try to team up families in these rural church planting ministries to make maximum benefit from our varying gifts and abilities in ministry.
