Miguel and Maria Adame

Missionary Profile

Ministry Focus

Miguel was born in central Mexico in Guanajuato and moved with his parents and siblings to San Quintin, Baja California where he grew up. After marrying Maria Luisa they moved to Mexicali where Miguel found a job working for a trucking firm. Through his pastor he was introduced to Missions Door and missionary Ken Holcomb, who asked him to help with a new church plant in a town called Renacimiento where he is presently working.

Faith Story

Maria Luisa received Christ before Miguel, and he was led to Christ by Pastor Andres Agundez. Miguel was baptized in Andres' church. After growing spiritually because of attending Bible studies and being discipled by his pastor, Miguel felt called by the Lord to the ministry. He attended a Bible school in Mexicali while ministering in various capacities in his church.


Miguel met and married his wife, Maria Luisa in San Quintin, Baja California. They have two children: Daniel and Yadira.

From ancient civilizations to modern cities, colorful traditions advance a vibrant culture

Colorful and joyful fiestas provide a staple of life in Mexico to celebrate everything from patron saints to national holidays to guitar music. Today's traditions blend Spanish influence since the 1500s with the heritage of ancient civilizations that flourished in Mexico for thousands of years prior.

Sunny beaches and turquoise waters of Baja California and Cancún bring thousands of tourists each year. And amid a combination of historic and modern architecture, Mexico City's 20 million residents make it one of the most populated urban centers in the world.

At the heart of every Mexican city lies the zócalo, or central public square, that invites community interaction. In contrast, plastered walls often surround affluent homes to provide protection and symbolize the importance of family in Mexican society.

The country has one of the world’s largest economies, driven significantly by manufacturing, and is the world’s largest producer of silver. But high rates of unemployment and crime make it hard for many households to earn enough income.

Your participation with Missions Door helps to meet strategic and spiritual needs of communities in Mexico through medical teams, leadership training, economic development, church planting and youth ministry.
