Impacting South America & Beyond

Russell Stendal, Director of SOM Latin America, provides updates of the work throughout South America and the globe. Russell describes the impact of the last Venezuelan elections. New elections will be held soon, and if international observers do not approve the results of the next elections, Bible distribution may be halted.
