New Mission to be Created This Summer in Mexico
Missionaries serving in the Mexico Veracruz Mission report that the mission will split into two missions this summer. The new mission will be based in Xalapa and will become the 25th LDS mission in Mexico. At present, the Mexico Veracruz Mission is one of the largest in Mexico and includes 14 stakes and one district. Due to close proximity to Nahuatl-speaking populations, the new Mexico Xalapa Mission increases the likelihood that mission leaders will initiate outreach among Amerindian populations within the new mission. At present, Nahua peoples are among the least reached Amerindian peoples in Mexico by the LDS Church.
