About Venezuela

 

Venezuela is a tropical country on the northern coast of South America. It consists of a continental mainland and numerous islands located off of its coastline in the Caribbean Sea. The Republic is a former Spanish colony that won its independence in 1821. Venezuela is among the most urbanized countries in Latin America. The vast majority of Venezuelans live in northern cities, including the capital and largest city of Caracas.

In 2006, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez expelled a church planting ministry that was reaching various tribal groups.  A year later, he seized control of a major television station that questioned his policies. In 2008, his regime re-issued the national currency replacing the portraits of national heroes with those of leading cult figures. The government has also begun to seize private lands and to speak openly about nationalizing all private schools.

Yet, in the midst of all these conditions, the gospel is spreading rapidly.
