Daniel and Tiffany Melton have served as missionaries with EFM since April 2003. They served in Honduras for 13 years, then moved home to South Carolina. While living there, Daniel made extended visits to the field several times a year. In December 2020 the Melton family returned to Honduras where they are now establishing operations at the new medical clinic and surgery center on EFM’s ministry property in San Luis.
Born in Ohio, Tiffany was raised in a pastor’s home. She was saved and sanctified in 1997 in Martinsburg, Ohio, at Faith Holiness Church. She was in the fifth grade when she felt that the Lord was calling her to be a missionary, and at sixteen, she felt that the Lord wanted her to be a missionary nurse.
Born in Louisiana, Daniel was 13 when he gave his life to the Lord at a camp in Florida. In 1997 while in college at Faith Bible School the Lord sanctified him. In his early teens Daniel felt that the Lord was calling him to serve in a foreign country. In college, God confirmed that call. Far from being a reluctant missionary, Daniel says, “It is still hard to believe that we are finally getting to do what we have been called to do.”
Daniel received EMS and Nursing Assistant training in South Carolina. He received a 2 year diploma in Biblical studies from Faith Bible School in Mitchell, South Dakota, and also earned a private pilot’s license.
Tiffany attended Penn View Bible Institute for a year, taking as many missions classes as possible. She studied nursing at Central Ohio Technical College in Greenville, SC, and holds a diploma in midwifery.
Daniel preached on Indian reservations in South Dakota while in school, and Tiffany participated in urban ministry with the Tom Kiser family in New York City.
Daniel and Tiffany have five sons: Kendrick, Kaleb, Kenton, Kaden, and Kysen.
