Rodney and Rhodes have been involved in missions since 2004, but it was not until 2007 that they began working in missions full-time.  They felt the Lord lead them to work in the Island of Hispaniola: Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Right now, they work under Youth With A Mission (YWAM), and have started a missions center in Azua that focuses in serving in both countries. Their mission is to create opportunities for both people groups to serve each other in both countries. They want to see Dominicans advancing God’s Kingdom in Haiti, and Haitians advancing it in the Dominican Republic.

The Gepharts have three wonderful children; Kai (19 years old), Lillyana (16 years old), and Levi (14 years old). They have made the city of Azua, in the Dominican Republic, their home.
