Introduction / History

The people have a lack of water so during the dry season there is a lot of sickness because of the contaminated dust in the air. A common sickness is typhoid fever. There is a special berry called the Mexican Olive it is chewy and is a specialty to them roasted or boiled with tortillas and garlic salsa. They also grow Pinion pine seeds. We asked an old Christian grandma how many grand children she has after adding them up in groups she had 72 grandchildren and I can't remember how many great grandchildren. Sadly not many are believers.


Where are they Located?

The high desert central plains of Mexico just south of Mexico City.


What are Their Beliefs?

The background of most is Roman Catholic. There are a lot of Jehovah Wittnesses and Luz del Mundo. Both of which are sects that have a lot of influence in the community. The evangelical Church meets on New testament principals only in the name of Jesus Christ. There was a split recently between the two leading families and they started another church.


What are Their Needs?

Better hygiene and learning how to forgive one another. Bible teaching on godly music because that is one of the controversies in the church.


Prayer Points

* The New Testament was translated by SIL in the 1980s but needs a revision which is in process right now.
* That God would raise up a godly generation and that they would show their faith by their works with love.
