The Spady’s spent twelve years as missionaries in Nigeria with SIM. They have three sons, their youngest was born in Nigeria. They have 9 grandchildren. Two grandchildren live near Bozeman, seven live in Camarillo, California.
The Spady family returned to Bozeman in 1982 worked in various hospitals and nursing homes. They considered applying with ISI to minister to internationals at MSU. At the time, Don and Dolly Boyd had been working with international students, opening their home and sharing meals with them. The Boyds were able to develop friendships with only a few of the many students. They had written to ISI headquarters asking for the Lord of the harvest to send reapers to MSU. The Spadys were the answer to their prayers and have been serving with ISI since 1998.
