Daniel Ascencio and Nayeli Urquizo

Missionaries

During his childhood in somewhat complex situations for him and his family, missionaries came to Daniel's neighborhood where he gradually learned about the love of Christ in the Bible schools that they organized. When he was 14, he began to attend the South American Alliance Church where he would meet the Corban missionary band. Elmer Zevallos (guitarist, founder of Corban) taught him to play the guitar. Some time later, Daniel would take his place, to start serving through music in Inca Link. Years later, he became the executive director of Inca Link Peru, where, knowing more closely the children with whom he worked, he could see himself reflected in each one of them because of his upbringing, social problems, but above all, their hope in Christ was the same. Seeing that the programs and their directors were doing a great job, primarily in discipleship, he felt that it was time to step out of his comfort zone as Executive Director and accept new challenges. He traveled to Barcelona (Spain) to study, but meanwhile served as Praise Leader at the Alliance of Barcelona. At the end of this period, God opened the doors for him to go as a missionary to Honduras to begin the new work of Inca Link in 2019, having as his main objective to build a strong local leadership in the word of God, that they be willing to serve in their community and that in no time they can manage Inca Link Honduras.

For Nayeli, it all started when visiting Inca Link Peru (many years ago). She began to take an interest in the neediest people in Latin America and to be intrigued by what their lives are like. After years, she decided that she would go where the Lord wanted, and one confirmation was that her parents were finally able to accept her calling.

Daniel and Nayeli were married in January 2020 and now live in Honduras, working together to build relationships with the people in the communities they are serving.
