From childhood, Kris York has been interested in other cultures. After she began following Jesus and heard the Great Commision in college, she was drawn to serve overseas. In 1995 with 10 boxes and a six-month-old, Kris and her husband started their overseas adventure. With the birth of twins, life in a communist apartment building became a challenge. Reflecting on her 23 years of ministry, she would not trade any of it and is grateful for the opportunity to raise her children overseas.
