An amazing story.... when Katie was 18 she went to Uganda on a short term mission trip. She was class president, home coming queen.... but for her Christmas vacation she felt pulled to go to Uganda to work in an orphanage.
She is the founder of Amazima Ministries. Katie is almost 23 years old now. She lives in Uganda and is mama to 13 orphan girls.
Catalyst in Atlanta this weekend. On the 15th of October she will speak at The Church of Brook Hills (David Platt/pastor) in Birmingham, Alabama. I wish I would of went to Catalyst. I had an opportunity to work a table for Compassion. Atlanta is a three hour drive ... maybe next year I will go!
Hopefully Katie's book will come in the mail later this week. I think Alyssa and I may fight over it! Maybe we will read it together.
I share these things.... and so much about Compassion because that is where our heart is. God has called us all to help the widows and the poor. Lately... I feel I am speaking to the wind as many are not interested. God continues to walk with me on this journey. Several friends online always encourage. I am so thankful for my two cheerleaders that are in my life... ready to listen anytime! Thanks, Alyssa & Claire. I love you. You encourage me daily.
Kisses from Katie would be a great gift for someone... or a book you might want to read and pass on. I am sure I will share more as I read it!
You can make a difference too!
