Addiction to cocaine is nothing new to residents of Borro in Montevideo-Uruguay. High rates of drug trafficking, drunkenness, violence, prostitution and unemployment are all characteristics of the community. Due to the nefarious activities practiced there, ministers of the Gospel and law enforcement sometimes shy away for the sake of their own lives.
All this began to change when Rhapsody of Realities penetrated Borro. Rhapsody of Realities partners in Uruguay proceeded to the community, undeterred by the evil reports they had heard, convinced that the Word of God is the most powerful change-agent in the world. The distribution kicked off with several beneficiaries giving their hearts to Christ within a short period of time.
While the distribution was going on, some gangs assaulted the partners and tried to steal from them, but miraculously, they could leave with nothing. After witnessing to people on the streets, partners took the distribution to their homes, reaching out to their family members and inviting them to church. This was how they met Enzo, a cocaine addict at the time. His first contact with Rhapsody of Realities got him and some of his friends saved; they have now given up cocaine and addicted themselves to Rhapsody of Realities.
This experience is true for many other young people in Borro who are now ardent readers of the devotional. Many of them have experienced transformation in their lives after giving attention to God's Word in the Rhapsody of Realities.
