New Testament Translations Spread Gospel In Rural Mexico

Missionaries with Christian Aid Mission are translating the New Testament into Mexico’s minority languages.

Indigenous people are mainly of oral tradition so the ministry is being developed through home visits.

Missionaries have told Mission Network News, building long-term relationships of trust is crucial for sharing the Gospel in rural areas of Mexico.

Covid-19 has created challenges but missionaries honour Mexico’s mandatory precautions in their visits.

Despite the precautions, several translators have contracted the virus and some have died.

Seeing how powerfully Scripture in indigenous languages touches tribespeople, missionaries say they are ‘essential workers’ for God’s kingdom.

Many people are coming to faith in the Lord as they listen to Scripture in their heart language.
