When you think of the country of Mexico a few things might come to mind. One is Mexican food. You either love it, or you don’t. Secondly, you might think of the drug lords along the border with the United States, and the challenges of that area. Thirdly, you might think of the great number of immigrants that are coming to our country from Mexico.
While all of these thoughts may be true for you, I would like for you to think about the mission work that is going on in Mexico. Mexico has a great heritage of religion. There are the indigenous religions of the people of Mexico, and there is the overwhelming influence of Catholicism in Mexico. The number of evangelicals in this nation is still quite small.
Bay Leaf has a partnership with one of our own people who is working in the city of Puebla, Mexico. She is working with the indigenous people that we know as the Aztecs. More specially, they are called the Nahuatl people.
Our church is planning four trips next year to help in this work. They will be in February, June, September, and November. Go to www.bayleafmissions.org/Mexico for more information about this area, this missionary, and this work.
Is this the year that you consider taking the Gospel to the people of North America?
