Kristi Van Nostran Prayer Card
Use this card as you pray for mission co-worker Kristi Van Nostran. This card includes a photo and overview of her work. As the Companionship Facilitator with the Joining Hands network in El Salvador, an initiative of the Presbyterian Hunger Program, Kristi nurtures the relationships between a network of churches and other groups in El Salvador with Presbyterians in the United States. Together, they strive to promote sustainable agriculture practices, reverse the growing dependence on imported grains and multinational seed companies, reduce hunger and strengthen rural economies. Faced with alarming rates of undernourishment and malnutrition among young children, and the stark reality that the farming families who grow 80% of the food consumed in El Salvador are those most likely to suffer hunger, Kristi says that Joining Hands’ work toward food sovereignty helps Salvadorans experience the abundant life that God desires for all people everywhere.
