We were both interested in missions from a young age and God worked this deep into our hearts as we entered our teenage and young adult years. We both specifically had a passion for the indigenous of the Amazon Basin before we had even met each other. We were married in 2010 and since then have had two daughters.

Carly joined Ethnos in 2006 and Pete in 2010 and we worked in Canada for several years. In 2018 we moved our family to Colombia to study language and culture with the end goal of seeing the Church expand to places it currently doesn’t exist in the Amazon Basin. In 2020 we had to move back to Canada for reasons out of our control. We are now based in Canada and are involved in assisting indigenous, national and western Church leaders to reach the least reached of South America.
