My aunt sent me a link to a blog a few weeks ago, and I am challenged and encouraged every time I read it. It is written by Katie, a twenty-year-old girl from Brentwood, Tennessee. After graduating high school, Katie flew to Uganda for what she thought would be a temporary mission trip. The Lord had other plans. She has now adopted 13 orphans and oversees Amazima Ministries International, providing over 300 children with food, medical care, school fees, and spiritual encouragement. In her words, "JESUS wrecked my life, shattered it to put back together more beautifully."*
Her blog is located at http://kissesfromkatie.blogspot.com/. There's also a link to Amazima Ministries on the right side of my blog. Check it out, and DONATE if you can.
"This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." James 1:28
