Converge Responds: Mexico Earthquake Fund

On September 7, a magnitude 8.2 earthquake occurred off the coast of Chiapas, Mexico, killing at least 96 people across Mexico, including at least 76 in Oaxaca State. It was the strongest earthquake recorded in Mexico in a century and the most intense recorded anywhere in the world in 2017.

Converge has numerous missionaries in Mexico, as well as ministry friends and partners in this region, who are deeply engaged in relief efforts, especially to numerous unreached people groups in this part of Mexico. A desperate need exists for health care, clean water, food, shelter and compassion for the thousands whose lives have been ravaged by this earthquake.

To help our brothers and sisters in Mexico and to enable them to be the presence of Jesus to those suffering in this region, consider donating to the Chiapas Mexico Earthquake Relief Project. Funds will be sent directly to the regional Baptist convention in Chiapas and the Baptist Convention seminary in Oaxaca, which will allow them to direct necessary assistance to locations where the damage has been the most severe.

The pastor in Chiapas who will oversee distribution of the funds there is the treasurer for his regional Baptist convention. He was a student at the baptist seminary in Mexico City 30 years ago and is a true and trusted servant of the Lord. The director of the seminary in Oaxaca is also a longtime and trustworthy friend and servant to the gospel. He and his students are ministering and assisting with relief efforts in the towns that have been affected. They have discovered a great need in those areas, but doors have opened to share God's love in the state in Mexico which has the largest indigenous population but a strong resistance to the gospel.
