I am completely amazed and humbled by this young woman. Katie decided to go into ministry after high school and follow God's plan for her life. She is now 22 and has her own non-profit for orphans in Jinja, Uganda; a country and city I fell in love with in 2009 when I was there. I would like my readers to take two things away from this:
1. If you allow God to use you the way He wants to, amazing things will happen for your life. We all have a calling, but do most of us utilize the skills that have been given to us? I know I haven't, and that's something to change in the New Year.
2. I understand that the United States has a number of orphans that need families too, but witnessing the poverty in Uganda and knowing that most of these orphans are due to HIV/AIDS, it's a humbling experience. Please consider sponsoring an orphan in Uganda through Amazima; they can feed a child three meals per day and educate him/her with only $300 per year: http://www.amazima.org/sponsor.html.
I hope everybody had an eventful and safe new year. I look forward to seeing what God has in store for you this year!
