Children preachers are an international phenomenon. Throughout the world, young boys and girls draw crowds by spreading the word of God to thousands of parishioners who listen with devotion.
However, this phenomenon has a special strength in some Latin American countries. In Peru, where there are more than three million evangelicals, a Children Evangelical Preachers Festival attended by 6,000 children took place in 2007. A year earlier, Evangelical churches in Ecuador reported having no less than 98 children preachers spreading their message.
