We head out tomorrow morning for Coicoyan in Oaxaca State. The Coicoyan people are among the most unreached people groups in Mexico. They are unreached because they are among the hardest to get to with the gospel. They are very hostile to the gospel and have run out some missionaries already. They are in desperate need of the gospel! We plan on running a medical clinic as well as a dental clinic. Hopefully this will open up doors for the sharing of the gospel. Their native language is Mixteco but some speak Spanish. However, they don't like to speak Spanish because they view it as an inferior language. They are also very superstitious about everything. They are very syncretistic in their beliefs as well. They live out Roman Catholicism to some degree but they also have their own "saints" that they pray to for rain.
- opportunities for the gospel to be shared
- salvation of the Coicoyan people/church established
- wisdom/knowledge for medical and dental clinics and strength to endure
- unity among team members
- travel safety
Thank you so much for your prayers! I pray I will return with news of salvation or at least seeds planted! Thank you and I love you all!!
