Missing persons in 2015 totaled 27,887

This is a news article about the number of people who went missing in Mexico in 2015. The majority of these are Mexicans. Add to this a statistic that I saw some 10+ years ago that Mexico has the highest kidnapping rates of any country on earth.

This is what it is like to live in Mexico.

First of all, I have lived the last 30 years of my life in Mexico, and you do not see many people who are out there looking for these missing people. As they get no or little media attention, they take to the streets to get attention.

Secondly, this is a by-product of drug cartel rule in Mexico. Because of the legal system and the government corruption, this becomes more and more common.

We should pray for those missionaries and Christians laboring and living in Mexico.
