Brief Profile

Mexico and the United States share a common border, and the people and culture of Mexico have influenced the history, food, and culture of North America in unmistakable fashion.

From the events at the Alamo many years ago, to the spicy flavors of Tex-Mex food and celebrations of Cinco de Maio, Mexican influence on American daily life is unmistakeable. North America is home to the largest Mexican community in the world.

In addition to legal immigrants, many millions of undocumented Mexicans have crossed the dangerous desert in search of a better life. Mexicans are hard-working and frequently send significant portions of their income to their families and home communities back in Mexico.

While they have traditionally lived in border areas, Mexican immigrants can now be found spread all over North America working in agriculture, industry, and service related jobs.

Mexicans traditionally practice Roman Catholicism, have a very strong connection to the veneration of the Virgin of Guadalupe, who is known as the "Queen of Mexico" and the "Brown Virgin." Only about 6% of Mexico is considered to be evangelical Christian.

In addition to "Mestizo Mexicans," approximately 10% of the population is made up of several hundred pre-Columbian indigenous groups such as the Mixtec, Zapotec, Triqui, Copala, Nahuatl, Southeastern Puebla, and Purepecha.

Prayer Points

  • Pray God will work in the minds and hearts of Mexicans to understand and receive the message of Christ.
  • Pray Mexicans Christians will boldly share the message of Christ with the least reached reached Mexicans and other least reached peoples.
