IMB missionaries living in Mexico City confront the syncretism of the Catholic faith and animism every day as they share the hope of Christ with the Mexican people. Though Mexico is considered reached with the gospel — with roughly 10% of the city’s population of 20 million considered evangelical Christian — the existing churches have a big task ahead of them in reaching the other 90%.
IMB missionary Rick Martinez says, “Impacting Mexico City is truly a God-sized task. The reality is that only God can do it, but how humbling it is to know that He invites us to become instruments in His hands to accomplish His will.”
As you look at the following pictures, will you pray with the missionaries and national believers that God’s truth will penetrate the darkness that covers Mexico City?
Continue to pray for the people of Mexico City to seek the one true God, and in Him to find eternal life.
