SERVING IN : Thailand, Asia
Karen has been serving in Thailand since 1990. She lives in Khon Kaen, located in the heart of Isaan, the poorest region. This northeastern region has the least missionaries of any in Thailand. Her mission is to present the Gospel via teaching English at the university as well as in her home. She serves as the children’s church leader at River of Life Church, founded by Globe missionaries, Bill and Julie Hughes. Karen is also assisting new missionaries as they adapt to the culture and encourages regular fellowship of missionaries. As a nurse, Karen is available as a source of counseling for health problems to both the Thais and the expatriates.
