Wishing with all my heart right now that the internet was not the internet and was a safer place for me to share the specific cries of my heart.

Right now though, we are just asking for prayer.

I am so thankful for the Body of Christ who will lift us up during this especially difficult season.

I am so thankful for the Spirit who intercedes on my behalf before I even have the words to pray.

I am so thankful for God’s grace that never runs out and is enough for today and enough again tomorrow.

  1. I love your blog and felt led to pray for you. Prayed for His encouragement, strength, rejuvenation in your spirit and wisdom for your decisions. Read Isaiah 53; like the root in dry ground, He was and is familiar with anything and everything we struggle with in missions and ministry. He promises to walk the struggles with us as He guide our hearts more and more towards a likeness of His.


  2. Katie's blog readers-

    Will you pray and fast with me for Katie, her girls, Amazima, that God's will will be done, and that his name will be glorified in and through this difficult time, on Wednesday, March 23?


  3. Kate, there aren't very many days that go by that I don't think about you and the girls and all things Uganda. During my alone time with God you come to the forefront of my mind and I plead with him on your behalf. I was just looking at some recent pics of Jane and my heart breaks for you. That was after I looked at the recent pics of Angela with her birth mom. It hurts so bad and I still don't even know how to come to terms with those feelings of loss for for them and Clayton and Cory and even Marcos. But like you, I know the lovingkindness of our God, and I know that he is good and knows more than we could ever try to. So we cling to that, right! I love you girls so much. I wasn't the greatest friend while I was there; I didn't even know how to be in the midst of all the things happening around me. I'm sorry for that. Truly. I love and miss you all like crazy and I am begging God to light your path and hold you close. Please please send my love to all the girls. Tell them that Christopher talks of them and dreams of them and asks me nearly every day when we are going back to his house. I hope to see you again this side of heaven! Until then know that you have my prayers. xoxo sweet friend.


  4. Dear Katie
    We dont know each other but i found your blog through a friend at work today (when i was supposed to be working) I was just fill with a joy i cant not describe. To read all of your adventures i could barely stop to scroll down! I went back to 2007 and read about the sleep over you had and when you tried to make the beans lol its was so funny. You see God has called me to the mission field and specifically to Africa. I have so many questions to ask you!! Do you have anyway that i can mail you a letter? Or an email i can connect with you through? I will be praying for you and the girls. Keep following Christ and i cant wait to here from you!! My email is devin.longenecker@teenmania.org

  5. Praying for you, sweet “internet friend,” especially in those times when you feel too weary to pray yourself. Praying that through whatever storm you're facing, God will come close and hold your heart. I know He will. Praying that you'll trust Him more and more each day and know that He will always be faithful. And, most of all, I'm praying that God will reveal His glory through this (whatever “this” is) and show you and anyone else involved just how very much He loves you.

    “I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, 
and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind 
and therefore I have hope:

    Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, 
for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; 
great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:19-23


  6. Praying!!! Our God hears us and will answer. All things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. The ingredients by themselves can be sososo hard, but I know He's going to work it all together to be a masterpiece.

    Psalm 91


  7. I have read your blog from beginning to end and know that when you need prayer and are unable to say for what that I just pray. He hears and he knows what the prayer we pray is for , even when we don't. He hears and will answer. Trusting in him for you and your family. God Bless.
