Joseph and Loretta, graduates of Texas Bible College, worked in a Christian school and served as assistant pastors before they pioneered a home missions work in Texas in 1980. They received their appointment as missionaries to Paraguay in May 1986. This appointment resulted from the Bir’s long-standing global mission burden. Following their first deputation and a year of language study in Costa Rica, the Birs arrived in Paraguay in January 1989.
