Esteban & Hannah Mora
Esteban Mora is the founder and current pastor of Semillas de Vida. He and his wife, Hannah, married in March 2012 and moved to Santa Rosa shortly after. At the request of three men, new believers, a small Bible study was started in 2013, and the grace of God has raised that study up to be a growing and maturing church. Esteban is currently working toward his Masters in Divinity at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary online. They have three children: Samuel, age 5; Mikaela, age 3; and Eliana, 8 months.
Brandon & Samantha Hoover
Brandon Hoover and his wife, Samantha, are another full-time missionary couple serving with Semillas de Vida. They are both from the same hometown in Pennsylvania, but met in San José, Costa Rica, through a gap program. They continued serving and leading the students of this program up through the spring of 2019, but felt a calling to work with the locals of Costa Rica more closely, and the Lord guided them to Santa Rosa. The Hoovers have been married since July 2017, and are expecting their first child in May 2021.
