Marcos and Cristiane Kurrle

Paraguay

Marcos’ parents moved from Argentina to Paraguay as missionaries and have been serving there since 1975. His grandparents, David and Lilian Meier, were also missionaries from Anderson Indiana and served in Argentina and Brazil.

Marcos and Cristiane founded Youth Planet In Paraguay, a Christian place for young people where they can have healthy companionship and fellowship.

More recently Cristiane has started an elementary school, Timothy’s School. This is being slowly and extended in memory of the late Julie Kurrle (missionary-Marcos’ sister in law) and Julie’s son Timothy. The school was started in 2014 with a kindergarten class and has continued to grow and thrive over the last few years. They use the Reggio Amelia approach to teaching. The program is based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment based on the interests of the children through a self-guided curriculum.

They also run children’s programs, educational programs, help with a Bible school, churches, radio program and teach in both Obligado and Asuncion.
