David founded Renew World Outreach to produce these tools for missionaries worldwide. Renew uses emerging technology to spread the Word of God among those with no previous access. Stephanie was a single missionary in the Dominican Republic before she married David. They started their family while serving alongside Youth With a Mission in Albania. While helping David found Renew World Outreach in the Atlanta area, Stephanie home-schooled their two children, who both share their parents passion: that everyone would have access to God's Word in their own language.

Liz Bozuto - Liz is the child of Irish immigrants and grew up in an extended family from Virginia, which included foster and abandoned children.  As early as the age of 5, Liz knew that she wanted to be a missionary after seeing pictures of people living in the tropics. Her mom told her that they were people who didn’t know Jesus and were visited by Missionaries. She was thrilled to think that one day she could visit them when she grew up, and take them her summer clothes! The Lord has shown Liz much over the years-- and she knows that you can only activate a plan when the Lord calls you to go! So, as Liz would say,  “Until then I must do all I can, for whomever I can, whenever I can, for as long as I can!’
