Fernando was born and raised in Banfield, a suburb of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He grew up playing sports and passing time with friends
and family, working and traveling as time allowed. At age 24 he
decided to move to Costa Rica to escape from the hustle and bustle
of the city and live in ‘paradise’. After 2 years of moving around,
partying and ‘living the dream’ God began to make him aware of
his necessity for a Savior greater than himself. By taking it one day
at a time, Fernando began the process of going through the 12 steps
and became VERY aware of this need. He began attending Iglesia
Radical since its opening and has continued to grow in his faith.
I, Jessica, was born in the US and grew up in Washington state. At age 12 I met Jesus and began to embark on the best journey His Life has to offer. Just before graduating high school I started working with a children’s ministry where I would remain for 3 1/2 years until I was led to move to Jaco, Costa Rica in October 2007. Within 3 months I met Fernando, the most wonderful man on earth and could see God’s will for me to work along side David and Pamela Knapp.
In the months that followed, the two of us went on an awesome adventure discovering our Creator, His love and will for us, and how we fit into that picture. Fernando and I married on November 1, 2008. Currently, Fernando and I are studying Pastoral Ministries in a theological seminary (ESEPA) here in the capital city of San Jose, Costa Rica. We began in September of 2010 and are loving it! I also take care of the administrative matters related to Radical Life Ministries. Fernando ministers pastorally to the growing youth ministry at Iglesia Radical. I help him with the young ladies in the group. In our free time Fernando enjoys golfing and surfing; I enjoy reading and taking photos and we both enjoy traveling.
We love our Creator. We live in the knowledge that our best is the very least He deserves.
