Uruguay is located between Brazil and Argentina. The economy has a high standard of living for Latin America, but with a costly and extensive welfare system and inflation. It is also the most secular state in South America, and the godlessness has in turn led to some of the highest rates of depression, suicide, abortion and divorce in Latin America.
However, spirituality and evangelical growth have been increasing in recent years, as they are discovering that something has been missing from their secular lives. Pray that missions and churches will be responsive to this discovery and will help fill the void with Christ’s love and forgiveness for all.
