Today's blog has been a favorite of mine for several months. This is the incredible story of an incredible girl. Katie felt like she needed to go on a mission trip when she was 16 years old. She looked online and found an orphanage in Uganda to visit over her spring break. Her parents thought she was crazy, but consented to let her go. While there, the orphanage asked her to come back after graduation to teach kindergarten for one year. She went home, but left her heart in Uganda. She went back to teach for a year...and ended up staying. She has now adopted 12 girls!! in Uganda and is working to help a very poor region learn to support itself. Katie is not even 25 years old and is one of the people I am most excited to meet on my trip.
Warning...even I cry when I read her beautiful posts. She challenges me every time I read.
