However, in recent years, there has been a strong development of Evangelical Churches due to a major, and effective, influx of Missionaries de Los Estados Unidos. Thus, in San Pedro de La Laguna, there is one historically beautiful Catholic church, one Baptist wedding cake and, from my understanding, over 30 Evangelical churches.
Now, Iīll be the first to admit that the evangelical faith is a bit scary
I will give credit to the Evangelicals, however, that when they arenīt worshiping in what seems like a hole in the wall home they have clearly hired an excellent exterior designer whom paints the more elaborate churches in brilliantly matching colors. The Catholics will always win though in their elaborate celebrations and grudging willingness to allow the Mayan people to maintain their own traditions.
