Stephen and Monique joined the mission twelve years ago, and both are from New Zealand. Stephen’s career was in the oil industry as a mechanical technician, and Monique in the finance sector as an accounts clerk. Both of these backgrounds led to useful positions at SonSet Solutions.
Stephen supervises the machine shop and water monitoring projects, while Monique serves in the accounting department. They were called into missions after Stephen had traveled through China, Nepal and India on a missions trip, and saw a great need for pastors and teachers but was unsure of how he could help. With a manufacturing background coupled with a desire to reach the lost, they are now privileged to build equipment that goes to these countries and more, to see Christian radio used by local pastors and teachers to reach their own people. A new and growing avenue of getting clean water into needy villages opens up further opportunities to spread the word of God to those who need to hear.
They have two boys, Josh (13) and Tyler (10).
