MEXICO: Bold Witness Beaten 40 Times




Gabriela lives in a rural village in Oaxaca, Mexico, where members of her Mixteca community adhere to Christo-paganism, a syncretistic blend of pagan practices and Roman Catholicism that is opposed to the Gospel. Because of her boldness in sharing her faith, she has been attacked by her neighbours as well as her husband, who is embarrassed by her commitment to Christ. She has been beaten an estimated 40 times and hospitalized on several occasions. Despite this opposition, she continues to make outreach trips into the Mixteca regions of the mountains of Oaxaca to spread the Gospel where few others can go.


  • Pray for a safe place for Gabriela to go where she will no be physically harmed for her faith.

  • Pray that her faithful witness will bring many to Christ.
