Merida, Yucatan

Yucatan, Mexico has a population of around 2 million, 83% of which are Roman Catholic. The Yucatan Peninsula has a great need for the gospel. We may be able to satisfy their material needs until they die, but then it is all for nought if they do not know Christ as their Savior.

Psalm 49:8 says “For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth forever:”

I already know the language and culture of Mexico and will immediately be able to reach those who God has called us to reach.

Our goals while in the Yucatan Peninsula are threefold:

1) Reach the lost with the gospel of Christ

We will begin our ministry in the Merida, Yucatan.  Merida has a population of almost 1 million people.  There is a desperate need of churches that preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sound doctrine. Currently there are only a couple churches trying to reach these 1 million people.

2) Start and build local New Testament Baptist Churches

We want to plant and establish Local, Independent Baptist churches in Merida, Yucatan and its surrounding area. We can fulfill the Great Commission one person at a time.  We also want to eventually reach into Guatemala and Beliz as they share the Yucatan Peninsula with Mexico.

3) Train nationals to continue the work. 

Our goal is to train the nationals to reach their own people. This can be done by one and one discipleship and/or establishing a Bible Institute to teach them sound doctrine from the Word of God.

To this end, please pray with us that:


  • God’s power upon our ministry
  • For people to be saved
  • In our traveling
  • On our deputation
  • For the prayerful and financial support of the churches
  • For a smooth transition to the field

We hope that you will add us to your prayer list as we continue deputation so that we can reach the lost in His name.

In His Service,

Ben Williams
