Guatemala has the highest rate of unsolved murders of women in the world. Sometimes women are gang raped and left in the streets, and police don't always file a report on the crime because of a low view of women in the culture. Domestic violence is rampant.
I have been traveling regularly to the eastern state of Zacapa in Guatemala since 2003. Although I have ministered in the capital city, I really love the community called El Rosario, near the city of Gualan. Pastor Oto Morales and his wife, Irma, are dear friends, and his congregation--Iglesia Nueva Vision--is like family to me.
