Shades of Nicaragua

Please Give

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

We are still moving in, so please keep checking back to see the newest information, news, photos and more!

We are Mark & Diane Shade - new missionaries to Nicaragua, through BMDMI.  While we are still raising support, we will leave on May 25th of 2016.

Also, we are have a baseball glove drive!  We need your old gloves!  We are taking baseball equipment to Nicaragua with us to use as an outreach tool with kids.  But, we don't have any gloves.  Any kind/size of ball glove is fine!  Softball, baseball, catcher's mit, old, new.... any glove will do.

You can drop them off at Watts Distributing and Shorties Grille here in Bartlesville!  Here is our flyer for Facebook etc.


If you need to contact us, please visit our "Contact Us" page at the left.  We would love to hear from you.

Also, here is our new t-shirt logo!  Be sure to go to our Partners page to order your new Shades in Nicaragua t-shirt today!
