The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
Argentina is a South American nation located on the southern part of the
continent. The highest point in the Western Hemisphere, Mount Aconcagua,
lies in the Argentine Andes. Most of the population lives in the capital,
Buenos Aires, or in the Pampa, a fertile region of farms and ranches.
After many years of Spanish rule, Argentina became independent in 1816. The
nation was enriched by immigrants from all parts of the world, and for many
years was one of the world's most prosperous nations. After 1950, dictatorship and military rule brought the economy near collapse. The situation has
only recently begun to improve.
Catholicism is Argentina's official
religion, but evangelicals have great freedom and considerable respect.
From the mid 1980's to the early 1990's, Argentina enjoyed a
revival and move of the Holy Spirit.
