(Mexico)–And finally, Yugo Ministries’ Wayne Freeland says witnessing to people in Mexico can be challenging. “Most people think of Mexico as speaking Spanish, and of course that is the official language of the country. However, it was originally habited by Indian populations and there are actually 250 primary languages in Mexico. It makes it somewhat complex because in some areas where we would be speaking Spanish as a second language the people are also hearing us in their second language, which is Spanish.” Because many of their short term mission teams help physically, Freeland believes they have an easier time communicating. “They’re interested in knowing why we have come to minister to them. So, that desire on their part and the Holy Spirit, of course, helps us bridge the language barrier.”
