Brief Profile

The Popti are an indigenous Mayan group who have migrated from the mountains of Guatemala and who maintain their pre-Columbian language and culture. Their primary language is Popti'.

The primary religion practiced by the Popti is ethnic Mayan religion rooted in the reverence of their ancestors and spirits in nature. Mayan religion is expressed through traditional rites, customs, and worldview, and conversion to Christianity essentially equates to cultural assimilation.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for Popti' believers to boldly proclaim the gospel to their people.
  • Pray that the barriers of traditional Mayan religion would be broken down.
  • Pray for more workers for the harvest, both for the Popti' in the United States, as well as those in Guatemala and Mexico.
