In Chiapas, Mexico’s southernmost state, Christian families often lose their livelihood when those opposed to their faith confiscate their land and expel them from their village. A ministry called Houses of Refuge provides one-room homes with a porch and outhouse for such families, and they may stay for up to a year as they try to relocate to an area where they can live free of persecution. The families receive spiritual encouragement as well as hands-on training in cultivating coffee, raising livestock and farming corn and other crops to help them support themselves. Some of the women receive training in how to start and operate a small convenience store. After sensing God’s call, Pablo, a resident at the Houses of Refuge, was commissioned to return to the area where he had previously lived to proclaim the Gospel to his persecutors.
