He is a political scientist by profession, graduated from Westmont College in California. After college, he started a ministry of planting churches with the Trique ethnic group in the agricultural fields of Sonora. After planting two churches among them, Daniel and his wife Mayra decide to go to the mission field to serve among Muslims.
Initially they had the idea of serving in Morocco, but after a visit, something did not materialize. Later they go out to the countryside to India, to serve among Muslims in Delhi. For almost 6 years they served among the Muslims in New Delhi, helping to plant churches among them and serving in a Christian school in a Muslim neighborhood. They are now back in Sonora, serving as official representatives of the International Missionary Society (SIM) in Mexico. They dedicate themselves to preparing and sending missionaries to the field, and they lead the SIM Mexico Missionary Training every January.
