In 1886, Manie and her husband Theodore Pollock Ferguson founded a mission in Los Angeles, California. This eventually expanded into what was known as the Peniel missions along the West Coast of America, and in Africa, Asia, South America, and elsewhere. The main focus of the missions, especially in later years, was ministry to single women. In 1947, the Peniel Mission became a part of the World Gospel Mission. In 1998, the West Coast USA Peniel Missions experienced a significant change when the majority of Peniel missionaries resigned and went to work for City Team Ministries, leaving the Peniel Mission in Stockton, California, the remaining American Peniel Mission affiliated with the World Gospel Mission.
