This interpreter is helping get justice for Indigenous women raped and tortured in Guatemala’s civil war

​December 2016 marks two decades since the signing of the Guatemalan peace accords. It officially ended a 36-year domestic armed conflict in which an estimated 200,000 people were killed and many more tortured and raped. Bringing war crimes perpetrators to justice has been slow, with convictions appealed and cases stalled. But many see victory in the trials themselves, and in their growing involvement of women.

You can trace evangelicalism in Guatemala to American missionaries who went to help out after an earthquake in 1976. But that doesn't explain its explosion in the decades since. The civil war might though.
