Daniel and Kacy Bristol

Daniel and Kacy Bristol are overjoyed at the privilege of serving the Lord as missionaries through Mission Aviation Fellowship in Indonesia. Daniel’s role as a pilot/mechanic will be to support missionaries in remote areas by flying them from one village to another—a task that can save days of travel. He will also fly community development supplies including Bibles, building materials, school books, and other essential cargo. Whether it is a medical evacuation flight or a supplies transfer, Daniel will use these opportunities to share Christ’s love with the isolated people he will encounter. Kacy will be focusing on creating a warm and inviting home not only for their family, but also for other missionary families and local women in their community.

Daniel grew up in Niceville, Florida, and was encouraged in his relationship with Christ by his parents. Missionary aviation came to his attention after hearing the needs of a Bible translating family in Indonesia who were dependent on missionary pilots to transport them to and from their remote village. It was in that moment that Daniel realized he could use his fascination of airplanes to serve the Lord.

After his interest in missionary aviation was piqued, Daniel went on mission trips to Indonesia and Haiti, in addition to a vision trip with Kacy to Papua New Guinea. He has dedicated the last 10 years to preparation for serving overseas as a missionary pilot and mechanic. Having earned his pilot’s license by the age of 19, he went on to work as a nurse to pay for his flight training. After obtaining his commercial license at LeTourneau University, Daniel finished up his aircraft mechanic training at Texas State Technical College in Waco.

Kacy is a born and raised Texan from Longview. She came to know Christ at a young age through her parents’ dedication to raise her to know the Lord. She graduated from the University of Texas at Tyler in 2012 with a master’s degree in accounting.

A seed was planted in Kacy’s heart for mission work after the death of a friend. She witnessed the destruction of relationships when the peace of the Lord is not known. God used this tragedy to spark a “special purpose” feeling for her life. Kacy didn’t know what God was leading her to at that point, but she knew she had been called to share the love of Christ with those who need to hear.

Daniel and Kacy met at church in Longview, Texas. After seeking the Lord’s guidance, they both felt He was leading them to a life together in missions. Since their marriage in 2014, Daniel and Kacy have prepared for their calling to serve in Indonesia.
