  Mexico 
Description
Largest of the Latin American states, Mexico possesses a colorful diversity of culture and racial mix. Spanish is the official language, but there are more than 50 Amerindian languages. Mexico is divided between the north and the south for admini- strative purposes. The South Mexican Union owes some of its phenomenal Seventh-day Adventist membership growth during 1999 to women who conducted 1,045 evangelistic campaigns and youth who held 1,500 campaigns, resulting in a baptism of 4,941 persons during the month of May alone. Children are now being taught to preach, and physicians are learning to give health lectures. Of every ten members, seven are under 30 years of age. In the North Mexican Union, two out of every three members are under 30 years of age. Satellite and electronic internet are used as soul-winning tools. Among the goals is the inauguration of Adventist radio and TV stations.
