She's doing what I am scared to do...

If you look to the side of this blog, you will see a link to "Kisses from Katie" and Amazima Ministries. A few years ago, I stumbled across her blog and have been a dedicated reader since. My husband also follows Katie and together we help support her ministry. My 10 year old daughter also keeps up with Katie and we have great conversations about what it means to follow God and what it looks like...

Katie does every day what I am scared to do. Take that step into the complete unknown in a foreign country and take care of strangers. Every time she posts my heart either breaks or is filled with joy. It is hard to read the stories of the starving, dying and addicted individuals. But it is joyful to read the stories of these same people being cared for by Katie, regain their lives and thrive in their communities.

Katie has written a book and here is a sneak peek into her life. She is also speaking at Catalyst this fall and I am so excited to be able to hear her speak in person.

Take a few minutes and watch how God is working in this young ladies life. Pray for her. Pray for the lives that she touches. Support her.
