Daniel & Shelly Young


In June 2022 we completed our previous ministry assignment where Daniel and I served in central Mexico.

Since then our time has been divided between investigating ministries and a short Home Ministry Assignment. We have been seeking the Lord’s guidance, while looking at 14 different ministries in 3 different countries. Nothing seemed right. We were asking God… What do you want?

In an unexpected survey trip to Puerto Escondido, in southern Mexico we learned of a Christian ministry Manantial Education Center that reaches out to Christian and Non-Christian families via low cost private schools with a focus on offering a Gospel Saturated Education in English. We are excited about this upcoming transition. We will be going for a time of clarification and confirmation starting May 2023. They have 220 students presently, with 200 on a waiting list. Grades kinder through high school, with plans of building a new educational center and expanding to the college level.


Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for clarification and a smooth transition into the school.
  • Pray for our adaptation to the culture and climate. Temperatures average 90 F to 95 F year round, and muggy half the year.
  • For an ability to be a light in the community, serve with energy, good health and joy.
