Luciano and Regina as family on mission

The Christian faith is our foundation and motivation.


About us

Who we are

We are Regina and Luciano, married since September 2018 and parents of our daughters Elena and Alissia. Together we are on mission for God.


Me Luciano, am a trained automation engineer. My budding passion is sustainable and regenerative agriculture.


Me Regina, am a trained health professional and have training in psychosocial support (counseling).



Our vision

We see ourselves on our own property with a garden and a few animals to develope the farm in a way that you can get insights into different farming methods or how to keep animals. Also, the farm should be accessible for training purposes for specific interest groups, school classes or as an outreac for groups or organizations but also for the self-sufficiency of us as a family.

This place will be a place of peace, safety and acceptance for everyone, especially children/youth or adults with families who need a time out opportunity with accompanying pastoral care. Through all these opportunities we give people the opportunity to get to know Jesus and grow in faith and fellowship together through Bible studies or prayer meetings.


We want to see people's lives changed in the physical, mental and spiritual realms.

Our Way

What we did and do

In January 2021, we visited a school for sustainable development (SSD) run by Youth with a Mission in Costa Rica. This included three months of practical lessons in agriculture. There was also a two-month outreach in Kenya and Malawi to put what we had learned directly into practice.


From September to November 2021, we completed mission preparation training from OM in Kabwe, Zambia.


At the end of September 2022, we traveled as a family to Costa Rica, to the base we already knew from Youth with a Mission in Heredia.


These are our current areas of responsibility


Our focus is the existing farm, which has an organic garden and a few animals and is used for training purposes for trainee development workers, mission teams and school classes. What we grow ourselves is processed and consumed directly and some of it is also passed on to social projects in the area, such as the homeless service.  Cheese and yoghurt are made from the cow's milk and the surplus is sold locally to make the farm as self-sustaining as possible.


During the discipleship schools, which are run by the base, we are passionate about mentoring and encouraging young people.


Another heartbeat of ours is accompanying families during their short-term mission.


Luciano is also part of the team of drivers for a wide range of transport services for teams, shopping and airport transportation.

Administration and communication

Another task is technical support and social media.
