About Kristina ~
Kristina: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”(Proverbs 3:5 – 6).
Kristina serves in the offices of Rural Compassion, helping to keep everyone on the same page. She has served Rural Compassion from near the very start. As office staff, Kristina often stays back when others are sent on adventures across the country.
“One time, a pastor and his family of four children stopped by the office and picked up some supplies for an outreach they were leading in their town and Rural Compassion got the chance to bless them. We gave them their own backpacks full of school supplies and new shoes and other essential items for daily living. And the mom just broke down in tears. ‘My kids have never had brand-new backpacks.’
“Being able to be a part of that, to give to them, it was a blast.”
“I have seen Rural Compassion grow from the beginning and how it has stayed the course, being intentional on serving the rural, out-of-the-way places. Bringing about lasting change takes a long time, it is not a quick fix, but Rural Compassion is breaking cycles of poverty and tangibly giving hope.”
When Kristina does get away from the office, she likes to have fun by taking trips into the country, unplugging from the busy-ness of life and enjoying the beautiful simplicity of the country.
