Go Forth, Love, Disciple..

Take a Short Term Mission Trip:

Experience, Change, Impact. One-week trips. Throughout the year we have teams come from all over, who serve in villages by building homes, evangelizing, medical work, bringing and handing-out supplies. In 2009 we are going to have our first teams from Australia and New Zealand. We give a two-day orientation on missions, culture and conduct before going to villages where few have heard the message of Christ. We usually spend 4-5 days ministering in a village and the last day we allow for rest and tourism. 

Summer Interns/Long-term: 

Serve, Learn, Grow. We always have room for long-term staff. Whatever your talents, they can be used on the mission field! In the past we have had summer interns who help us prepare for housing large groups and scheduling. It is a great opportunity to learn the culture and the language. Check out our About Us and Interns page to learn more about serving in Oaxaca long-term. 

Minister from where you are:

Pray, donate, encourage. Many people just can't come all the way to Oaxaca, we encourage you to pray for our team as we minister and travel. You can also partner with us by giving financially. To give to the Cawthon's - go to www.cten.org/giving. You may also email or call us and encourage us as we continue in the daily battles against the darkness. 

Unreached Peoples in Mexico:

Finishing the Great Commission. There are over 280 distinct indigenous languages (not dialects) spoken in Mexico all of which represent at least one and possibly 3 or 4 ethnic peoples. Oaxaca has the largest concentration of indigenous languages spoken in the hemisphere (over 150). There are still whole language groups with no church or workers among them in Mexico and the majority live in Oaxaca. Many other language groups have very weak churches and are in desperate need of the Gospel of Christ. Who will go? Will you?

Example of the ethno-linguistic people branches in Oaxaca are;
the Zapotec Indians (59 languages and possibly 150+ ethnic peoples),
the Mixtec Indians (52 languages and possibly 200+ ethnic peoples),
the Chinantec Indians (14 languages and possibly 40+ ethnic peoples),
the Mixe Indians (8 languages and possibly 20+ ethnic peoples),
the Mazatec Indians (8 Languages and possibly 20+ ethnic peoples).
