Lessons from Venezuela
Global Ministries highly values the words and perspectives of partners. When partners tell us that they are concerned with something, it becomes the concern of Global Ministries, too. This profound act of listening and solidarity helps us all to walk together in mutuality and hope.
Recently, much has been happening in Venezuela. Global Ministries turned to our partner there, the Evangelical Pentecostal Union of Venezuela (UEPV) to learn more about the situation from their perspective. These pieces are developed to help you better connect to the UEPV and the situation in Venezuela. These resources may be used in worship, Sunday school, or for individual understanding and reflection.
