(Venezuela)–Missionaries in Venezuela are asking for prayer today. A national strike is being held in opposition to President Hugo Chavez policies on the state monopolized oil industry.

Burch says the strike is expected to force poverty-stricken families to send children into the streets looking for handouts.
