Posted on February 11, 2021 Pray for Peter and Sarah McCurdy serving Christ in Mexico City in Theological Education and ministry to children.

Peter and Sarah serve in Mexico City at the invitation of the Baptist Theological Seminary, a partner of IM. Peter’s ministry focus is theological education, spiritual direction, and spiritual formation. He serves seminary students, seeking to provide a safe and nurturing environment for them, their families, and others pursuing a call to ministry. Sarah, a former French teacher, has been invited to collaborate with IM partners working with children’s holistic ministries in health and education. Peter and Sarah’s hope is that, through their ministries, hearts and minds will be changed, and people will grow into the image of Christ. 

They write – We arrived in Mexico City (CDMX) a little over two weeks ago! … 

We praise God for going before us and taking care of all our needs during our day of travel. .. Our two weeks in CDMX has been quiet yet filled with daily errands (one or two of us going out at a time following the necessary precautions) to purchase items to set up our house, exchange money, sign our rental agreement as well as other requirements around that, etc. We are slowly acclimating and getting our feet under us and beginning to learn the ins & outs of Mexican culture and how to navigate the city all while being attentive to the needs, struggles and victories of each one of us. … Your continued prayers for strength, endurance (mental & physical), spiritual growth and maturation, safety, health, acclimation to our new surroundings, and God’s provision for our needs are greatly appreciated. We ask specifically for prayers around the house we are trying to rent. It is a much slower process than we would like for it to be. We initially thought we’d be in our temporary housing for a week, but it looks like we will be staying in it for almost three weeks.  

As we are settling into life in Mexico, we are beginning to notice some things and are praying about how to respond. For example, one of Peter’s collogues shared about how in the city alone the Baptists have lost 40 pastors with another 20+ losses outside of the city. This is leaving 60+ widows without income or housing. There are about 20 pastors who lost their spouse but are able to keep working and stay in their housing. The Baptists are meeting and praying about how to respond and so are we.  

Thank you for journeying with us through prayer, financial support, love and in spirit.
