A walk through the streets of remote mountain villages in Mexico is an experience that fills the senses. Houses are painted in bright, colorful hues, the sounds of roosters, dogs, birdsong, and fireworks fill the air, and the scent of homemade tortillas cooking over wood-burning fires serves as a reminder that it’s time to eat.

But in this place filled with warm, caring people, there is a sense of fear and lostness that only the hope of Christ can heal. This is the work the Armstrong family is striving to accomplish here in this hard-to-reach place. To bring the gospel to those who have never heard, they must trust and rely on God no matter what.

The task of reaching an indigenous UPG high in the mountains of Mexico is made difficult by the group’s isolation from the outside world and the rough terrain in which they live. Chris said, “These communities are not easily accessed physically or spiritually.”

Chris and Sara make inroads by “doing life” with the villagers and demonstrating their desire to learn and help.

Chris and Sara said, “Although many don’t agree with us and don’t want our religion, they are beginning to respect us and see we are there to help, and we are always willing to lend a hand and contribute to the community when we can.”

For the Armstrongs, prayer is an essential part of life and ministry. Through it, they have seen God do miraculous things. They shared, “The only reason we have seen any success in sharing the gospel and entering these closed communities is because so many people back in the US are praying for God to move daily.”
