Revised November 2014: Actual Situation in Mexico to Date

There are a number of families that are still living in government shelters after having been expelled from their communities in 2009 and through 2014 without resolution, or a serious government attempt to attend to their cases; there are over 50 - 70 cases are documented just in the southern state of Chiapas: including those of Chilil, Los Llanos, Matamoros, and Union Juarez. There are evangelicals under siege in many communities in Zapatista autonomous zones in Las Margaritas, Ocosingo, San Cristobal and the Chiapas Highlands areas. The families of Evangelical prisoners from the Acteal case rejoiced for the release of some of their men in 2009, 2010, and recently in 2014, but are still waiting for the Supreme court to release the remaining in prison. Drug cartel violence in the northern states of Chihuahua, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas has extended throughout Mexico to Michoacan, Guerrero, and though the southern states, into Central America. In 2011, 3 foreign missionaries were killed, and from December of 2010 to June of 2011 3 Evangelical s were murdered in Chiapas. Please keep Mexico in your prayers, and Be A Voice for those who don't have one wherever and whenever you can.
