Thank you for taking the time to view our website. We are the Young Family and we are missionaries to the People of Honduras. This website was designed for churches and pastors to get to know us and our ministry. My name is J.D., my wife’s name is Vanessa, and our children are D., Elijah, Millie, and Laia. Our goals are to raise prayer and financial support so we can serve full-time in Honduras. On the field we plan to initially work with two veteran missionaries in Honduras: Harold and his son Leslie Priday. They have been working in Honduras for over forty years. During the first two years, we will work to become fully fluent in the Spanish language, learn the culture, witness to lost souls, and teach in the local Bible College, while working under these two missionaries and their respective mission works in the city of Siguatepeque. After these first two years of training, we will plant our own work, train a national pastor, and turn that work over to that national pastor when the time is ready for that work to become an indigenous Baptist church. Please contact us if you would like us to present our ministry in your church.
My name is Jimmie Young. I was saved in July of 1993 during a week-long camp in Oklahoma with a church in Aurora, Texas. It was then that I clearly understood the price Christ had paid for my sins and I saw my need for His salvation. Three months later I was baptized and joined North Side Baptist Church in Weatherford, Texas. Several years later I began attending Victory Baptist Church in Weatherford, Texas. It was under the preaching of Pastor Charles Wetherbee in 2010 that I surrendered to the ministry after I was already married, had graduated college, was working in my professional career, and my wife and I were about to have our second child. From there I began Bible College and graduated from the Norris Bible Baptist Seminary in 2016. After Bible College, I served at my local church for a year and then I served a year on staff at Lighthouse Baptist Church under Pastor David Grice. After my second trip to Honduras, I felt God’s call to serve as a missionary to the People of Honduras.
My name is Vanessa Young. My Dad was raised Baptist and my mother, being a 2nd generation Mexican-American, was raised Catholic. My grandparents took me to a Baptist church when I was a child. After moving, my parents started attending a Pentecostal church. I knew something was not right with the messages that I was hearing. As a teen, I stopped going to church. I met J.D. while in college and we were soon married. After our first son was born we moved to Weatherford and started attending Victory Baptist Church. I felt so much conviction because I knew I was not saved. I knew that if I had died, I would go to Hell and that nothing I could do would save me except for accepting Jesus Christ and His life, death, burial, and resurrection. Soon I followed up with Believer’s Baptism on 10/10/10. The next year we had our son Elijah followed by our two daughters Millie and Laia. I have been working in the church nursery and helping where needed in kid’s church or Sunday School. For the past few years, I have been taking as many classes as I can at Norris Bible Baptist Seminary. In 2012, I had the opportunity to go to Honduras with J.D. where I had the privilege to speak to the women that were in Brother Harold Priday’s work. I plan to be working with the women and children in Honduras.
