A Letter from Kathryn, January 20, 2008


 I’d rather live
with the scars of true love
than to close off
and be free of pain


to encourage & inspire you in your walk with the LORD and to share His goodness.



"Life isn't
about waiting for
the storm to pass,
it's learning to dance
in the rain.


 Kathryn received a warm welcome 'home' from her precious little favourite boy, Weiss.  It thrilled her that he totally remembered her. When she walked in through the gate, he called out, Auntie Kathryn! and then ran into her open arms.

God is good.
God is faithful.
God is merciful.
all the time.

Kathryn & Weiss - 2008



I want them to see me as
 more than 'the Mzungo who is
only here for her token mission's trip.


Would you consider how you might support Amani Baby Cottage?

She says:  "My boy Weiss"

I wish you could be here right now!  I LOVE thunderstorms in Africa!  That's why I am even awake right now... major rainstorm The thunder is a constant low rumble and the rain is as heavy as a bathroom shower :) It would soak through ALL your clothes in a matter of seconds!  It's still too hot to sleep with more than a sheet."

 As cold waters to a thirsty soul,
so is good news from a far country."

baby Tolufina with malaria... resting by Kathryn... fever and listless.

We just received the postcard from Kathryn that 
was being mailed in the pic above.... so sweet.


back at home... in the kitchen, before the trip...

Did you know that Kathryn and Joy love to go to hockey games with all the friends
when they are home in the States?  And, that they have another favourite, too?

God has surely blessed this precious daughter beyond words to describe.
We have prayed for her to be blessed and used of the LORD in the lives of others,
that her feet would carry the Good News and the Gospel of Peace.
We have prayed that through her many would be drawn to the LORD and a
Saving knowledge of Him.
It is with humble and joyful hearts that we acknowledge His answers to prayer over and over.

Another part of Kathryn's life story...
Beautiful Feet
and the precious work of the LORD in her life.
