(Venezuela) — Headlining today’s news, in spite of economic troubles, social unrest and political instability, Venezuelan Christians are using these troubled times for ministry. Latin America Mission‘s Ken MacHarg reports. “Tension continues in Venezuela despite the unresolved end of a three month general strike. LAM missionary Laura Smith reports that a couple who are seminary professors had been praying for their community, but had not been able to get to know their neighbors. In civil defense planning meetings, neighborhood leaders found they were pastors, and now the couple is visiting, counseling and presenting the Gospel. In another church, Christians are ministering to people in long lines at gasoline stations, distributing water and sharing the Gospel. On weekends, people line up overnight waiting for the arrival of gasoline in the morning. Church members are there with coffee and friendship evangelism. For Mission Network News, I’m Ken MacHarg”
