So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.

1 Corinthians 3:7
Our task is not always easy, but it is always simple: LOVE, because He loved us first.

    oh my gosh. I know I don’t know you, but I love you. You are such an awesome person and I hope one day to meet you! I found you through my little sisters blog (emonamission) and I found out yesterday after raving about you to my mom that you and her write back and forth. Wow. Small world we live in! Anyways, all that to say that your doing a amazing thing and me and my husband have decided that we are going to live on beans and rice for a week every month and send you the money we save on grocery’s so you can feed your beautiful babies! Keep up the good work! and post as much as possible! I love reading about your life and children!

    Katie katie katie.i head to Gulu in 23 days (not that I’m counting:]) and keep pulling up your blog over and over and over again (even though i’ve already read all the entries..haha)…just to look at the faces of these precious children. oh goodness. my heart BURSTS.i know i’ve told you this before, but here’s a reminder. the stuff God is doing in and through you displayed on this crazy little blog has been HUGELY influential in my life. BAH. yay Jesus.

  • Embejo

    Katie…been reading here for a while…can’t remember if I ever commented or not. Love to read about what’s going for you there….I’m sure you’re no doubt way too busy, but I tagged you for a meme on your favourite things about being a mum. I tagged you more to send my readers to your blog than to actually have you do it! So…no pressure!!! Keep up the good work.

  • Renee

    I’m running out of words and ways to tell you how much your posts bless and touch me. Love you and pray that God will continue to give you everything you need to serve those beautiful children and people. Thanks for the pictures…my heart is bursting.

    Beautiful. God’s work, those gorgeous children, and your heart for serving others. Reading your blog is the highlight of my week, but it makes it hard for me to think of anything other than spending July loving on those wonderful kids.God is great! Praying for you, Katie! In Christ,Brooke

  • Amy and Phil Weinmeister
