Mexico: Expelled! Chiapas Evangelicals Forced from their Homes

Many evangelical Christians in the Chiapas State of Mexico have been beaten, jailed, threatened, had their possession taken away and, in many cases, even driven from their homes. What has caused so much hostility and anger against these followers of Jesus?

A team from The Voice of the Martyrs Canada went to this southern Mexican state to meet with persecuted believers and hear their stories in order to find out why they are facing such intense opposition. You'll be encouraged by their amazing faith in the midst of incredible trials. You will also see how VOM Canada is partnering with VOM Mexico in a united effort to stand with the persecuted church...not only in Chiapas but in other volatile parts of the country as well.
