Missionary Curtis Wakefield was raised in Northern California in an Apostolic Pentecostal pastor’s home. From a young age he was involved in many areas of the work of the church such as cleaning, Sunday School, outreach, and youth ministry in his high school.

Bro. Curtis and Sis. Doreen met while working as dishwasher (Curtis) and counselor (Doreen) at a summer church camp in 1986 and married Nov. 14, 1987. They attended and ministered in Elder Glenn Wakefields church in Chico, CA.

Bro. Curtis Wakefield’s father, Elder Glenn Wakefield began to win Spanish speaking people into the church in Chico, CA. After feeling the call to Mexico, Elder Glenn and Esther Wakefield made the big step in 1992 to move to Mexico and began preaching and planting churches in the states of Guererro, Oaxaca, and Puebla.

Bro. and Sis.Curtis Wakefield supported the elder Wakefields’ ministry for the first 3 years until God opened other doors of financial assistance for them.

In 1998, after having given to the works in Mexico and having visited the churches, the burden began to grow to be more involved in the missions work there. After much prayer, fasting, and counsel, God made a way! In 1999 they sold their business and everything they owned and moved to Mexico, driving a 1986 Volkswagen Jetta.



For those first few years Bro. Curtis Wakefield assisted his father while him and his family learned the language and the culture of Mexico.

The Wakefields returned to the U.S. for 5 years after Austin, their son, was born with several health issues. During this time in the U.S. they pastored in the state of Georgia and returned to Mexico in 2008.

Early in 2008 Elder Phillip White asked Bro. Curtis to pray and consider pastoring a daughter work of theirs on the north side of Puebla, a city of 2.5 million. It was God’s will and the Wakefields still pastor at that location.

God has been very good to the Wakefields and the churches of Puebla and other parts of Mexico. The fellowship of independent, like-minded men is growing as is the number of the churches.

Time and space do not suffice to tell of the many things that God is doing and has done in Mexico.

From the tent revivals and building projects, to personal testimonies of salvation and the church schools; not to mention the many doors God is opening for the future.

Thank God for all his blessings and favor!
