Noches de Gloria

By
February 1, 2009

Evangelism is rapidly gaining popularity in traditionally Catholic Latin America. While the evangelist churches originally sought out the poor, rural migrants, and indigenous peoples, these churches have started to attract the urban middle class as well. At a recent crusade in Bolivia, over thirty thousand worshippers filled a stadium to see Cash Luna, a Guatemalan pastor who heads one of the largest evangelical churches in Latin America.

Ruxandra Guidi works as a radio and print freelance journalist. In the last year, she’s been reporting from Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, Panama, Venezuela, and Mexico.

Roberto [Bear] Guerra is an independent photographer based in South America. His images, photo essays, and multimedia pieces on topics ranging from the Shipibo Indians of the Peruvian Amazon Basin to an emergency clinic in one of Rio’s most notorious favelas have been published widely.
