Questions for Chrysti

Here's a little bit about Chrysti. What questions would you like to ask for her interview?

Hello! I’m Chrysti, and I’m a missionary wife and mummy living in northwest England (quite long distance from London). This part of England is absolutely gorgeous!
It’s been awhile since I’ve visited this space because my family has been on home assignment for the past several weeks. So I thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself (again)!
If you were to come to our home for a visit, I would offer you a cup of tea because that’s part of British hospitality. And then we’d probably talk about the weather (which is probably rainy) before we get into more get-to-know-you type questions.
I’ve lived in England for almost 3 years with my husband who has been in England for 8 years. You could say the story of how we met redefined “missionary dating.”
I stay at home with our 1 year-old son, and I’m thoroughly enjoying this season of my life! Before our son was born, I worked with a team of ladies to write Sunday school curriculum for our organisation. Prior to getting married and moving to England, I was a teacher and a manager of a copy centre.
In my heart, I knew I’d end up as a missionary somewhere. I just never imagined it would be in England as a wife and mummy!
Please leave your questions in the comments here. Chrysti will answer them next week.


  1. I wanta know about this missionary dating story!

  2. Me too - haven't heard the term "missionary dating" before!

    Other questions - how has it be been for you adjusting to a culture that your husband had already been living in for a long time? What do do you love about England? What are some of your ongoing challenges?

  3. This is kind of an extension of what Sarah asked: what do you think is the biggest cultural difference?

    Do you have a British accent yet? :-) Or does your husband?
