Arthur and Mary Alice Ivey - Serving Christ in Peru
Arthur and Mary Alice
Arthur and Mary Alice have been serving in Peru as missionaries with The Mission Society since 2001. Their son Joshua is back in the U.S.A. attending school at Toccoa Falls College. Their daughter Mary Beth, her husband, Oscar, and their grandsons, Dominic and Royce, live in Marietta, Georgia.
Jesus called Arthur to evangelism and discipleship through the story of the resurrection of Lazarus in John 11. Also, he was called specifically to Peru through a newspaper article on Peru. God wants them to bring his precious treasures, the Peruvians, back to life through Jesus Christ, and to see them set free from spiritual strongholds in their lives. Mary Alice was called to missions through Genesis 12, which is the story of how God called Abram to obey Him, go to another land, and to be a blessing to the people there.
Arthur has a strong call to disciple youth and adults in small groups and to train the Peruvians to do the same for others. Mary Alice has a call to minister to children through weekly Kid’s Clubs. They also work with teams that come from the states that do evangelism, discipleship, Christian business training, and medical campaigns in different places in Peru. Their hearts’ desire is to see people set free in Christ so that they can do what He has called them to do.
