I have seen the same thing in Nepal, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. Its really sad to see, how missionaries go to the most remote areas in order to turn people to there own believes under the cover of helping them. It is a bit like all the city centers become more and more the same due to big franchising companies pushing away all local competition. What we as humans are loosing is a lot of diversity in culture, for them it might be their identity.
After traveling a bit, I can only say that I have no respect for Christianity anymore. They make it look like helping, but in fact it is nothing else than a big marketing show in order to make more people join their cause. Ironically people are easiest to convince where help is needed the most. And money for those “causes” is easy to get in developed countries.
