In 1990, Alcides and Sileny Fuentes got married and also felt God call them into full time missionary service. They received their theological training from Esepa Seminary in Costa Rica, and then went on to get involved in church planting and discipleship within the Central American church. They opened Christ for the City, a ministry base in Nicaragua where they worked for 8 years training pastors and leaders while also motivating the churches in social action.
Alcides and Sileny have been with Missionary Ventures since 2013, serving as the Directors of the Regional Latin American Office with the goal of mobilizing, training, and sending Latin American nationals to make disciples of not yet reached ethnic groups.
They also have two daughters, Paola and Priscilla.
