Largest Religion


Introduction / History

The Nahuatl Tlalitzlipa language never was a separate language from other forms of Nahuatl, only mis-identified. Now, Spanish is the dominant language in the village of Tlalitzlipa and almost all of the few remaining Nahuatl speakers are bilingual. A Nahuatl translation is being done in the area that would reach the few individuals who might prefer Scriptures in Nahuatl. But in general, the people of Tlalitzlipa would not need a separate approach from other Spanish speaking villages and towns in the area that do not have an evangelical church. They do not need to be considered a separate unreached group.

There is a Catholic Church in the village, but there seem to be no believers. Tlalitzlipa is largely unreached with the Gospel like many villages in the area. But in terms of reaching the region for Christ, it may be more strategic to try to reach the bigger towns first, like Ahuacatlán or Zacatlán.
