Organised crime and corruption play a large role in the persecution of Christians in Mexico. Criminal gangs and indigenous communities are responsible for attacks, fines, isolation and imprisonment of believers. In some instances, within indigenous communities, Christians are denied basic social services including water, electricity and education. Being outspoken against the drug trade can mean harassment and even death.

Pray: For strength and courage for church leaders who are often the target of attacks and persecution.
