Chichimeca Indians Outreach
Brother and sister waiting for candy!
In the past several years MissionMexico has conducted a number of outreaches to the Chichimeca Indian reservation. Due to centuries of abuse the Chichimecas are very resistant to outside influence. Over the centuries the Indians have been attacked, pushed off their lands and left in poverty. No where does the long term affects show as much as in the young people who have a hopeless attitude towards their future. Many young people do not attend school to learn as they see others that did end up with no work other than in the fields picking vegetables. Yet, in the despair there is hope in Jesus Christ.
Pastor Hector & Family
Chichimeca Pastor and his lovely family
P. Hector and his family have been living on the Chichimeca reservation for almost three years. The spiritual atmosphere is very dark. The Chichimeca Indians have been known as a very reclusive group of people, in large part, due to extremely bad treatment by the government. The Indians have been left with the worst of the lands and are just now getting electricity, drinking water and sewers. The roads are still rutted packed dirt. Never the less, progress is being made though it comes very slowly. Thanks to the efforts of many short term teams there is an established church.
