Welcome to the website for the Ministry of The Shades, in Nicaragua!

We are Mark & Diane Shade – missionaries in Nicaragua. We recently joined Mission Quest after serving in Nicaragua with another mission for just over 4 years. We will continue to work and live in Nicaragua. Our goal is simple – we want to see Nicaraguans grow their own passion and desire to share Christ with all of Nicaragua. We work in a variety of ways to further this goal, but overall our work could best be described as “serving local pastors, their families and churches as Barnabas serve the early church”.

We will add more information about Mission Quest and our new relationship with them very soon.

Please feel free to look around our site. We hope that it will answer all your questions, share current news from the field with you and hopefully inspire you to share Christ with someone today, wherever you may find yourself.
