Dustin and Courtney come from Texas and have two boys; Cole is 10 and Luke is 8. They have been serving in Santiago since March 2017. Dustin, originally from Colorado, is the leader of the Agriculture site. He runs a small farm on the base and goes out in the community to help families raise gardens to support themselves. Dustin loves to use agriculture as a way to share the gospel with families in the community and as a teaching tool for the students who join him in the Ag site. Courtney, a native of Texas, is the Student Life Coordinator. She works with the teams before and during their outreaches to the DR. Courtney is passionate about helping the teams understand the vision of SI and helping each person understand their role as a missionary, both while here in the DR and when they return home.
