I am not eloquent with words, but my heart resonates with thoughts like the ones quoted below. What do we do with all of this information? How can we possibly make a difference? What is God's will for us and how do we fit as individuals into this part of the puzzle? It's so easy to get overwhelmed to the point of inactivity. To get frozen with fear, with lack of resources, with lack of "know-how". How do we REALLY be God's hands & feet?? This amazing woman is an example of what it looks like to live it out...to show by example, to ACT. A modern-day Mother Theresa. I stumbled across this ministry and her blog amidst the amazing woven tapestry called the blogging world. And now I am truly blessed!! Thank you Auntie Katie for your example and sacrificing your life for "the least of these." Check this amazing woman out, and prepare to be inspired! She started Amazima ministry. Check out her ministry here.

"We aren't really called to save the world, not even to save one person; Jesus has already done that. We are just called to love with abandon. With EVERYTHING we have. We are called to enter into our neighbor's suffering and love them right there."

"i am marveling at how one small candle can seem to fill my whole house with light. just as Jesus fills my heart. and now i take my candle around to all the others and light them, the house practically glows. my one tiny flame has made everything bright. and i am reminded that i can light candles in the hearts of others, as long as i let Jesus fill my heart here first. 'you are the light of the world.. so let your light shine before men that they my see your good works and glorify God the Father..' "
I am still reading through her blog. It is a treasure FULL of golden nuggets like the ones quoted above. I am truly amazed and grateful to know there are such beautiful souls in this world making a difference like Katie is in Africa. She is teaching me so much about selflessness and unconditional love.
