Cristi

MKs, I'm so excited to officially join the ISMK team! My new role means that I get to be a missionary to YOU! I am the Pastoral Care provider, meaning I will help with MK mentoriing and discipleship, leading MK Task Forces, assisting new MKs who are going to the field for the first time, as well as MKs returning to the U.S. for college.  I'm here to be a friend and sister any time you need it.

I became an MK when I was nine and moved to South Africa on my 11th birthday. I lived there with my family until I was 19, returning to the states to attend Evangel University, where I earned a BA in Communications.  I worked for several years as a chief during the MK Summer Program and also worked in the MK Office sending you all birthday cards and gifts.

I was later appointed as an AGWM missionary and moved to Wales, U.K., where I spent three years helping plant a church and leading a student ministry.  I saw firsthand how being an adult MK in missions brought its own unique joys and challenges, but I wouldn't have traded any of it.  I also rekindled my love for drinking tea, watching rugby, and adoring the Royal family.

I'm now back in the MK Office and working on my MS in Human Services Counseling through Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU).  You should know
                                                                                                                     that, if you are one or 22, I will refer to you as an MK
                                                                                                                     baby with all the love in my heart.
