Mauricio and Diana Palacio have been missionaries and staff members with Youth With A Mission since 1991, working in various locations, teaching on campuses and facilities locally, nationally, and internationally with University of the Nations. The university's primary purpose is to provide excellent education, training, and sound spiritual foundation with practical applications in field assignments around the world.
Since 2006, Diana and Mauricio have been working as full time missionaries in Colima, Mexico. They serve their home and local churches with various types of ministries, hosting teams of missionaries and offering training, workshops and seminars related to calling, discipleship and creative ministries, and the use of arts as forms of ministry. They spent the first few months of 2019 in Langley, BC Canada for training and to develop a Spanish version of several discipleship and counseling programs, with the vision of taking these tools to Mexico and other Spanish speaking countries for further and more effective ministry.
