At the age of seven, Kristen and her family moved to Brazil to live on mission. At a young age she learned the joy of serving and sharing the Word of God. When she was 16 years old, her family moved back to the United States. She knew that God had been teaching her and equipping her for her time back in the United States but she longed to go back home to Brazil. Going on a mission trip with Chapel Pointe, Kristen and her husband had the opportunity to go to Brazil and are excited to take their kids to serve with them on another short term trip.
