Discipleship - a Lifelong Journey of Openness

Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 11:1 have always struck me as very courageous and extremely risky. He says, “Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ.” Many different things go into discipleship, but I believe that this may be one of the most important parts. Discipleship, in this sense, is like inviting someone into the house of your life and leaving the doors to all of the rooms open, even though some of the rooms are still a mess. It’s saying, “Jesus has brought me this far, there’s still a lot left to do, but we’re working on it together.

We're Closing!

In 2003 the Hoover’s moved their family to Costa Rica and started a discipleship ministry that began as Pura Vida Missions which later morphed into a ministry called VidaNet with Pura Vida Missions as one of its programs. Over the years we have had over 6500 people join us in Costa Rica as participants in our different programs. It has been exciting to see what God has done in the lives of those who have participated with VidaNet’s programs.


As time goes on and I continue to work with the ministry of El Nido, God continues to show me His heart for the women. El Nido reaches out to pregnant women especially those in low income areas. They come not just with physical needs, but also emotional and spiritual needs.
