Today, Venezuela is considered to be among the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Severe hunger and shortages of basic necessities are harsh realities. The political corruption, socialist policies, and economic failure over the past twenty years have spiked enormous inflation and drastically slashed purchasing power. This leaves millions of ordinary Venezuelans struggling to feed their families.
These tremendous needs are creating a deep spiritual hunger among Venezuelans. “Thousands of people who before didn’t really need God found themselves on their knees asking for their daily bread,” shares a CAM contact. Believers report a growing openness and hunger for God’s Word. Churches are experiencing growth.
In reponse to these needs, CAM is working through contacts to provide Christian literature, food, and other aid to needy Venezuelans.
