I’ve been following a blog for quite awhile now of a young woman named Katie who lives in Uganda. Already, that’s pretty cool, living in Uganda and all. Butt add to it, Katie, a 22 year old girl from America who moved to Uganda and is a mother to 13 orphaned girls. That changes your perception drastically.
I was so enamored by the call of God upon her life that I scrolled back through all of her blog posts to start back at the beginning, when she was 18 and God was calling her to move to Uganda. That’s such a radical move..to leave everything behind…family, boyfriend, life…the American dream! Yet in a simple step of obedience, Katie stepped out and God has blessed her and her ministry exponentially. I long to have the kind of faith that she possesses, even when she was so young.
Recently, she released her first book, which I am dying to read. As soon as I get a better handle on the amount of reading I have for my classes, I’ll be tearing through this book. I admire her in so many ways, for being obedient to the Lord and giving Him all of the glory. It would be natural to tell her she is such a great person for what she is doing, yet she takes no credit–all goes to the Lord.
If you get a chance, follow her blog. She shares her heart in such a beautiful way and gives updates on her ministry in Uganda.
