Why Uruguay?

More than a century of secularization has left this historically Roman Catholic country with a minority of Christians. Almost 60% of Uruguayans do not believe in God or have any religious affiliation. Despite attempts to create alternatives to faith, most Uruguayans suffer in spiritual darkness.

The only answer that can bring real peace is the light of Christ.
