Since Ann and Adoniram Judson arrived in Burma in 1813, countless lives have been loved and empowered through the hands and feet of our faithful American Baptist International Ministries missionaries. You are invited to this special event and hear from one of our own member to celebrate the beginning of Advent and hear Katreena's stories of hope, love, joy, and peace as we celebrate 200 years of American Baptist missions in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma).
Sponsored by Women's Ministries

Guest Speaker:
Katreena Rybchinskiy

Katreena was born to Philip and Wilma Htoo in 1976 in Dawei, a small town in Burma (now known as Myanmar). Her father worked nearby as a mining engineer. Due to political unrest, her family fled through the Burmese jungles and crossed the Thai border when she was 13 years old. Their family lived on the Burmese and Thai border for a few years while waiting to receive approval from the United Nations to be classified as refugees seeking political asylum. After receiving approval, her family was sponsored by First Baptist Church of Redlands to immigrate to Redlands. Katreena attended elementary school in Myanmar. She graduated from Bakersfield High School, received an AA from Los Angeles Pierce College, and a BA from Cal State San Bernardino in Business Management. She resides in Rancho Cucamonga with her husband and children. She has two younger sisters & one brother.
