Prevalent Ideology: Catholic Syncretism
Leader: President Enrique Peña Nieto
Description: Mexico has the second largest economy in Latin America, but rural areas are often neglected.
Life for Christians: Rural Catholics in the states of Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero (among others) see evangelicals as a threat to their way of life. Local leaders also view them as a threat because they don’t participate in town rituals involving heavy drinking and worship of saints and other deities. Some villages post signs reading, “No Other Religions Allowed.” Evangelicals are often expelled from their communities, losing land, homes and crops. Pastors and Christian workers have been threatened with death.
VOM work: VOM supports front-line workers who share the gospel and plant churches in these regions.
