About Mexico

Mexico is Latin America´s third largest country; it is home to 330 People Groups, 3 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. One of the indigenous groups who have shown some willingness to hear the Gospel is the Cora of West Central Mexico. The Cora were conquered by the Spanish in the 1700s and they were supposedly converted but most Cora still follow their pre-Conquest religion which features a father, mother and son trio of Gods. Missionaries in Mexico have set up training centers to equip indigenous tribal members so they can return to their tribes and share the Gospel.

The evangelical movement in this country has experienced a tremendous growth in the past 10 years. Despite the growth many believers in rural areas face persecution at the hands of religious people and religious discrimination.
