Saddened by the high numbers of tribal communities in Mexico without a Christian presence, Alejandro Labrador and his wife started Ethnic Outreach in Mexico (EOM) in 1996, They gradually won the trust of the San Juan Tieta people and planted a church among them. In addition to this church they planted churches among other nearby people groups and started a Bible training course. Today more than 20 EOM workers are sharing Christ among Mexico’s unreached people groups.
EOM hopes to construct a mission base consisting of two buildings: a center for missionary training and strategic collaboration, and a dormitory to accommodate missionary trainees and visitors. The mission base would be constructed on land donated to the ministry in the town of Tlaxico in Oaxaca State where EOM missionaries are currently working. The base would allow then to consolidate their programs into one location with adequate facilities to reach unreached people groups and care for their growing number of missionaries.
The mission base would directly affect 27 people groups – 21 of which the ministry is currently reaching, and six people groups that EOM plans to reach in the next five years.
