Rhett is from San Diego, and Stacie is from Wisconsin; they met at Ethnos 360 (formerly New Tribes Mission) Bible Institute. Before attending Bible School, Rhett’s personal ambitions left him empty handed, and so Bible School served as time for him to seek God’s direction. Shortly into their time at the Bible Institute, Stacie was struck by the vast need for missionaries around the world, and the deep darkness that exists in many places. They decided that being involved with missions was the path that the Lord desired their growing family to follow, so they continued on to the Missionary Training Center, and then Papua New Guinea, where they currently live. Their family has grown to six with the addition of four sons: Milo, Owen, Wyatt, and Lincoln. They pursue the goal of planting a thriving church among the Koval people of PNG, with the ultimate aim to see that church sending out missionaries of their own, relying on the Holy Spirit to grow and minister to the people around them.
