Chiapas is the southern-most state in Mexico and borders Guatemala. It is a beautiful, mountainous region that is populated mostly by indigenous Indian tribes descended from the Mayan empire. These tribes have their own language and culture and many of them remain unreached today.
Since 2013, Engage Hope has been serving in the Chiapas region. Our teams have participated in building more than a dozen churches for local pastors who are planting churches and evangelizing this region. Our work in this area has expanded to include children's ministry, women's conferences, and a slum outreach in the area outside of Tuxtla, the largest city in the region. We also support Casa Hogar Alegre, a children's orphanage, also located in Tuxtla. The dedicated staff provides a loving home for babies, children, and teenagers who have been victims of abandonment, physical or psychological abuse. The children receive food, education, clothing, medical care, technological training, and, most of all, love. Casa Hogar Alegre also provides a solid Christ-centered focus and Biblical teaching, which is woven into their everyday living and educational programs.
