Mexico and the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America

The Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America held its annual Peace Camp in July 2017 at the Mission Mazahua in San Felipe del Progresso in the mountains Northwest of Mexico City. These scenes are from inside the former Hacienda de Tepititlan founded in 1718 and its surrounding area. Over 200 people participated and about half came from Canada and the USA and the other half from Mexico, Cuba, Argentina, Columbia, Chile, El Salvador, and Puerto Rico. This bi-lingual event represented part of what needs to happen to build peace in the world. This place represents hope since it was a place of slavery for the Mazahua people as a large hacienda and now represents a place where the local Mazahua people participate in rebuilding and running a center for gathering different kinds of people.   All the images from that trip are available on my website at
