Daniel states his faith journey is full of “faith, hope and a lot of questions, with my heart in Jesus’ hands. My only wish is to serve and make substantial and significant contributions to the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ. I have felt His steps close to mine in the missionary walk and it becomes clearer as the days go by. Everything is in God’s hands, and everything will come to be in agreement with God’s purpose”.
Daniel’s calling to mission begins with his work for more than ten years with people that live on the streets and his sense of Christ resurrected with those in the margins. “I began to feel the desire to serve from the margins, from the most excluded edges with those who are excluded. Life has taken me to different work scenarios with people that suffer. “When I became a pastor, I continued to hear the call to serve in mission. When I heard the words of the Master: ‘I came to serve and not to be served.’ I felt compelled and I listened and followed that message.”
He and his wife, Dr. Nery Patricia de Jesus, have four children: Andrea Marcela, Daniel Andres, Maria Victoria and Benjamin Isaac.
