Our focus this week is on Latin America and the Caribbean. During the 20th Century, the Americas proved to be the most dynamic Christian continent.

This still leaved many democratic governments fragile and economies struggling in many countries.
- · Centuries of wrongs against the indigenous peoples have caused civil wars where protest and revolt came from the repressed e.g. Guatemala and Peru.
