Mexico: Three families kicked out of their homes

pattern

Imagine if your community kicked you and your family out of your home and town because you refused to help organise a festival for a religion you didn’t follow. Imagine that you weren’t allowed to return for anything inside your house – your photos, your clothes or any of your stuff…

It’s difficult to even think about this happening. But for three Christian families in Mexico, this injustice is their living nightmare.

The families of Christian converts Eleuterio*, Jesús* and Dorian* were kicked out of their homes last October after Eleuterio refused to sign a document committing him to help plan the religious festival. For the last year, they have been harassed and persecuted because of their faith.

It’s been six months since their evictions, and all three families are still trying to recover everything they own.

These believers were part of a small church community. Our local partner in the area shared: “The authorities took matters into their own hands and evicted the families from their homes.” The leader also announced a fine of 500 pesos (about $25) for any village resident who purchased anything from Eleuterio’s shop.

The families are currently living in a community near their hometown, where they continue their legal battle to recover their possessions. So far, they have heard nothing from their local government about the issue.

Let’s pray for these three families and ask:

PRAY NOW...
1

That God will bless them with His peace and patience during this trial

3

That they can recover their possessions swiftly and without incident

2

That they will find a community that accepts and supports them
