Jonathan and Maggie Hunter met while attending Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Jonathan grew up as a missionary kid in Ecuador, and Maggie grew up outside of Atlanta. After graduating from Moody, they got married and have been happily married for the last 8 years.  

Along the journey, they added Patrick (7), Molly (4), and Liam (1) to the family. In 2013 the Hunters moved to Costa Rica to serve Missionary Kids and Third Culture Kids (TCKs) through the International Youth Group.
