More people are needed to help ministry to young people in Guatemala. Ezequil Martinez (ee-ZEEK-yihl mahr-TEEN-ehz) works with Impact International. “The larger population of Latin America is a young generation. Of instance in Guatemala 60 percent of the population are 24-years and under. Well need more people to come and continue reaching out to these teenagers in Latin America.” Martinez, who is staying at D&D Missionary Homes in Florida, says American as well as Hispanic Christians are effective in ministry. “The people in Latin America are very open to a cross cultural experience. So when we bring a group from the United States to Latin America you find that the kids are very open to talk to American kids.” Martinez says many come to Christ because of that outreach.
