Alex and Julie Paniagua were until recently the Costa Rica directors of Operation Mobilization. OM is a truly global consortium of young-at-heart Jesus followers who share a passion for the unreached and underserved. Alex is a Costa Rica native with a big relational heart who blends in physically and culturally throughout the global south. Julie grew up in Mexico, the blond-headed child of American missionaries. Alex and Julie settled in Costa Rica and gathered a team around a vision to reach Costa Rica’s rural indigenous communities. They’ve been developing a rugged ministry outpost in the rural community of Talamanca to show Christ’s love to unreached people and to train young missionaries for work all over the world.
