With the original intention of signing up a handfull of children Katie, closed out the 2008 year with 150 kids signed up. Today this program sponsors over 700 children and with the help of more sponsors has the potential to cater to the needs of many more.
Katie is humble enough to admit the process that led her to this point. She said, “I would like to say that I had all kinds of great ideas about what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. I would like to say my ministry was born out of a carefully thought-out plan. These things simply aren’t true, though. I was walking through life one moment at a time, blown away by what God could do through me if I simply said yes.” What powerful words those are. Such a simple concept to realize that no plan is needed just a willingness to hear God and answer Him with a simple, Yes!
I’M RUNNING FROM THINGS THAT CAN DESTROY MY SOUL… I AM MUCH MORE TERRIFIED OF LIVING IN A SELF-SERVING SOCIETY AND FAILING TO FOLLOW JESUS THAN I AM OF ANY ILLNESS OF TRAGEDY.
If Katie's story has struck you and this ministry has been placed on your heart, there are a few ways you can help.
This ministry's greatest need is for sponsors and financial partners. Just $300 a year enables one child to receive a Christian education with all necessary school supplies, 3 hot meals a day , spiritual discipleship, and medical care.
