I have just finished the greatest book. The kind of book that hurts while you read, but that hurt is actually the effects of your heart growing wider and deeper and in profound ways. An extraordinary girl named Katie Davis, leaves her posh life at the top of her class and goes to Uganda for what was supposed to be a short-term missions trip. Instead, she finds herself drawn to the place God calls her and moved to Uganda to reach the needy people there. At 19 years old she began her journey to bring jobs to women who needed them so badly they prostituted themselves out, education to children whose families' wouldn't be able to afford it, medical care with her own two inexperienced but willing hands and has adopted 13 beautiful girls. She is remarkable. Her story is powerful.
You must read Kisses from Katie.
And then visit her blog.
And then visit her ministry website.
And then ask your husband to buy you these beads for Christmas because it would make you so very happy indeed to feel these precious women close to my heart. (Please, Mattie?)
Though far less exhilarating than the book above~ I am working on this scarf in a random mohair skein that was given to me. It is coming slowly because I am alternating between this and that pesky second glove that needs to be finished!
