Kristen Fry grew up in Granada Baptist Church.† In the 1990ís, she felt called to mission work through Africa Inland Mission, and spent two years as a resident ĎDorm Motherí to children of missionaries, at Rift Valley Academy, Kijabe, Kenya.†
Her next two-year assignment was in teaching public health practices to the Watutu in Tanzania, living in a mud hut, many hours from any of what we would call modern conveniences such as electricity, running water, shopping malls, and mail delivery.
In 2000, she felt called to work with street kids and orphans (some literally rescued from the garbage!) in Kampala, Uganda, and in 2002 chose to commit herself to career missionary status. She now serves at Dwelling Places in Kampala, where over 80 children currently receive care, love, and education. She writes a weekly newspaper column explaining and promoting adoption, has a weekly radio program about adoption, and also establishes relationships with street kids who arenít ready yet to move to a more structured living style.
Granada Baptist Church is privileged to be a part of her support base.
