Unreached in the Americas

Last week a group from my church journeyed to Chiapas, Mexico to work with the Tzotzil Indians that live in the mountainous region along the border of Guatamala. It was an amazing trip to say the least. We worked along side the International Mission Board Volunteer Strategy Coordinator, Sergio Matassa, and a team from his church (Oak View Baptist in Irving, Texas). Sergio has been working in the state of Chiapas for six years and has formed a non-profit organization called G.L.E.D. (Global Leadership and Economic Development) to help facilitate a church planting movement among the unreached Indians of Mexico.

Our work consisted of three projects:
1) Visit and encourage mission churches planted among the Indian villages around San Cristobal and Simojovel.
2) Construction work at the Institute for Church Planting in Simojovel.
3) Medical Clinic and Evangelistic work in a Tzeltal Indian village near San Cristobal.

The scenery was breathtaking, the food was interesting, but the experience of seeing people of another tongue hear the story of Christ’s death and the way He paved for eternal life was unforgettable.

Please pray for the Unreached Indians of Chiapas, Mexico.
