'''Kleine Gemeinde, Mexico'''
 
  
 +
In 1948 about 800 '''Kleine Gemeinde''' (“small church”) emigrants from Canada settled in Mexico. Ten years later some Kleine Gemeinde members moved to British Honduras (now Belize). Others returned to Canada in the last quarter of the 20th century. The group has about 2,775 members in 16 colonies. Ten of the colonies are in the state of Chihuahua, and the others are scattered in five other states. This group uses Low German but has an evangelical mindset and accepts more technology than the Old Colony Mennonites. Some Kleine Gemeinde members are converts from Old Colony groups. Other congregations related to this group are in Canada, Belize, and the United States.<ref>Donald B.

In 1948 about 800 Kleine Gemeinde (“small church”) emigrants from Canada settled in Mexico. Ten years later some Kleine Gemeinde members moved to British Honduras (now Belize). Others returned to Canada in the last quarter of the 20th century. The group has about 2,775 members in 16 colonies. Ten of the colonies are in the state of Chihuahua, and the others are scattered in five other states. This group uses Low German but has an evangelical mindset and accepts more technology than the Old Colony Mennonites. Some Kleine Gemeinde members are converts from Old Colony groups. Other congregations related to this group are in Canada, Belize, and the United States.[1]
