Emiliano & Raquel Seravalli
Both Emiliano and Raquel grew up in Christian homes in Costa Rica and attended and served at La Communidad Bíblica de la Gracia (Grace Bible Community)—a church affiliated with the work of Grace Ministries International in San Antonio de Belén, Costa Rica. Emiliano graduated from college in 2009 with a degree in software engineering. Instead of pursuing that career he entered Grace Bible Institute of Costa Rica and graduated from the missions track in 2011. During his studies at Grace Bible Institute he took several mission trips to Nicaragua which fostered his passion for missions. Raquel, at age 17, spent a year in Bolivia discipling girls, teaching, and working in women’s ministries. Upon her return to Costa Rica she also studied at Grace Bible Institute from which she graduated in 2012 from the missions program. While studying at GBI of Costa Rica, she also became involved in the Nicaragua ministry.
On December 1, 2012, Emiliano and Raquel married wanting nothing more than to dedicate their lives and their marriage to serving the Lord. While single they each individually wanted to serve as missionaries. Now they are serving the Lord together in Nicaragua.
They have been ministering in Nagarote, Nicaragua, since February 2014. Property was purchased in 2015 which is now being developed and a church has been meeting on the property since May 20, 2017. The Seravallis’ goal is to invest in people so that they will invest in others (2 Timothy 2:2) through discipleship, Bible teaching, and a Bible institute that began in September 2017.
“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus–the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God” (Acts 20:24).
