    the bishops who had migrated south believed that the migration was a migration of the church not just people New leadership was formed and in some cases there was spiritual revival Colony Life and Customs edit Much of colony life in Mexico can be described in part by a commitment to the way things were in Russia Decisions made are often done so in light of how it was done in Chortiza and other Russian Mennonite colonies The villages are set up with purchased land divided in two by a wide central street along which the farm houses and buildings are built Behind each farmhouse is a garden and behind that the farmers land A large section of pasture is kept for all of the villages cattle rather than individual pastures This layout closely mimics the Russian colonies The homes are built together with the barns and nonfarming structures were initially built out of wood despite a lack of that resource in the area When the colonists diversified they increased their success greatly New ventures included general stores box factories and most importantly cheese factories Dress Dress is simple as with most conservative groups All women wear modest clothes designed to make the wearer less physically attractive While young women may wear printed fabrics married women wear black or dark earth colors Men wear good quality black suits on Sundays but wear whatever is cheapest during the week Overalls are particularly popular Men are always clean shaven Colonies are structured like a theocracy with a bishop or Altester as the religious head of the colony and a secular manager of business matters The Waisenamt is a system devised by the colony that functions as a bank and regulates business Colonies have their own fire insurance mechanics and sometimes even physicians Church Life Religious ceremonies are held as they were in Russian as well Colony churches are built of wood despite it being a poor construction method in the Mexican climate There is a simple reading stand for the pastor who reads a prewritten sermon most often on the topic of repentance or submission There is a platform towards the front of the church where the song leader directs two hymns towards the start of the service Before and after the singing Scriptures from the New Testament are read Preachers who are delivering the sermon wear knee high leather Wellington boots another tradition that is carried over the from Russia Men sit on one side of the church women on the other Children are not allowed to attend the service as they are considered to be too much of a distraction It is assumed that they will receive their religious instruction from schooling and that they will join the church services when they are around 14 Marriage takes place at a relatively young age and love has not historically been a requirement for marriage Daughter Colony Formation The village colony system is set up so that villages and colonies are constantly dividing and replicating When a colony is established there are several hundred families spread over multiple small villages When a man marries he is traditionally given a home and land When the colony grows to a point where land is scare the mother colony purchases land in an other remote area and divides the residents of the mother colony in half with some staying behind and the others heading to the newly established colony The new colony is paid for in full by the mother colony and the mother colony always sends along one ordained minister to start up the church there There have been many issues with this system however From the start land was expensive and with colonies expanding as rapidly as they were daughter colonies were expected to be mother colonies before they themselves were properly established Many young families could not receive land and jobs in industry were almost nonexistent Often colony divisions occur over religious issues Typically the mother colony has become too progressive whether it be with the allowance of rubber tires on tractors electricity or automobiles A conservative group of bishops and their followers will leave and be established somewhere else where they can better maintain the tradition as they see fit The failure of the colony system to support the rapidly expanding Old Colony population contributed in part to the return to Canada Education The education of their children is the main cause of the Old Colonies presence in Mexico today They feel they have a biblical mandate to educate their youth not as citizens of a country or of the world but as effective members of colony life Today Old Colonists are heavily critiqued for their inadequate schools In Canada and in Mexico their schools were shut down due to ineffective teaching and curriculum The curriculum of these schools is simple there are only a few textbooks They are the Bible a song book the ABC book a catechism book and a collection of simple arithmetic problems Often after leaving school Old Colonists are barely literate and can do only simple math MCC and the Amish have been working towards improving their education system in a variety of ways The Return to Canada edit Early Old Colony life was not easy and many colonists returned to the life that had in Canada By 1969 18 of each new generation was returning to Canada rather than stay in the colonies In 1977 1 500 Mexican Mennonites per year returned to Canada By 1996 35 000 Mexican Mennonites had emigrated back to Canada The extreme drought of the early 1950s coupled with land pressure caused Mennonite families to begin returning to Canada during the summer to harvest crop in Ontario The first seasonal trip was taken in 1952 and the trip quickly became almost a necessity for some families Migrant work continues to this day A seven member family can earn up to 10 000 dollars a month working in the fields or
