Kristen is serving full time at The New Light Foundation where she is teaching English to Burmese children at the New Life Christian School, assisting in running and coordinating community events, helping work and coordinate volunteer teams, and helping mentor older students. The New Light Foundation was built after the tsunami in 2004 and is a community center that is dedicated to helping the village of Baan Namkem in its recovery for the long haul.
