Volunteering With Purpose


Krista is one of World Orphans newest volunteers. In a very short time, she has already been a tremendous administrative help! As a donor-funded, non-profit ministry, volunteers are key to our effectiveness, both in getting the behind-the-scenes work done and telling our story well. Krista lives in Iowa with her husband, Devin, and two boys, Derek and Jackson. She manages a legal database from home and is finishing her associate’s degree online. Devin is in school as well and hopes to become a pastor. They are both involved in their church, and Devin, under the leadership of their pastor, got to teach his first sermon in July.

Krista and Devin have a strong desire to be involved in missions. Having been adopted with her sister from Bangkok when she was five, Krista has an especially soft heart for orphans. Through researching mission organizations, Krista found a volunteer posting from World Orphans. Krista says, "This is a good first step into exploring future mission opportunities. I have to say I’m really inspired and proud to help out with this organization."

We are so thankful for Krista and all of the others who volunteer their time to help World Orphans as we serve our many partners, churches, and children around the world.
