The Rivetto family are most recently from the Boulder area of Colorado. After meeting at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri in 2001 they both had a strong passion for missions and soon married with plans to eventually live overseas and do full time mission work. Almost 13 years later their dreams became a reality and they were asked to come on board at New Hope Childrens Home (peruhope.org) in Arequipa, Peru to be full time spiritual directors for all the children in the home and the volunteers. Their primary responsibilities are to provide spiritual development through discipleship and mentorship and to work closely with the local church.
Prior to moving to Peru, Ryan was a worship pastor for a number of years at a great church just outside of Boulder, Colorado and Rebecca stayed at home with their 3 children. Ryan is passionate about doing anything outside, good music, reading, spending time with people and his family. Rebecca loves being a mom, is passionate about helping those with special needs (including her oldest son Elisha who has autism), loves good coffee and running.
