Venezuela, Latin America: Challenges facing the churches. The need is for: a) Commitment to discipleship. Confronted with poverty, political activism and outright spiritual warfare, believers need to make wise choices. A life of true discipleship is not easy, and full-time ministry is even more of a challenge. b) Unity is essential for further growth and for the power to stand up to opposition.
