Blake and Kathy Penson
Our God Story
Blake received Christ at the age of nine in Australia where his parents served as missionaries to the Aborigines. Blake’s childhood in Australia had an impact on his call to missions. He worked as a finance officer in the Armed Forces. Kathy was led to the Lord at the age of six by her mom. Kathy was impacted by the example of her uncle and aunt who served as missionaries in India. She later studied to become a primary school teacher. At a missions conference at Moose Jaw Alliance, God led Blake and Kathy to leave their careers to become full-time international workers. They worked on a church-planting team in Mexico City (1997-1999). From 2001 to 2015, they served in a CAC in the Caribbean Sun, training and mentoring pastors of the C&MA house churches and developing a prayer network that united denominations. They are currently serving as team leaders in Mexico City.
We long to see urban professionals of Mexico City know Christ and be discipled to become a transforming presence among the least reached around the world through their careers.
We mentor our IW team and give guidance for strengthening ongoing ministries and developing new initiatives to reach and disciple the urban professionals. We work alongside the Mexican national church toward capturing a vision of finishing the task of reaching the least reached in and beyond Mexico. We facilitate the foundation of a prayer network to unite churches in Mexico City and in the nation.

Pray for wisdom and discernment to help our IW team and national leaders take measures that will render powerless the enemy’s efforts to create distrust and disunity in a historical context of division.
Pray also for health and protection in a city of extreme pollution and high security risk.
Pray that this valley of dry bones would come to life.
