Katelyn Reiter

Missionary to South Africa

Ministry Description

I am a missionary intern to South Africa working alongside the Word of Life Missionaries already established there. My main roles will be with the Girls at the Discipleship training center. I get to disciple them, love them, and just live life on life with them. Word of Life South Africa also puts on camps throughout the year, and are super involved in the local churches nearby. I will get to be apart of these both by serving where needed as a youth or children's ministry volunteer.

About Katelyn

I grew up in a household with parents who loved the Lord. We were super involved in our church, and were there whenever the doors were open. I came to the knowledge of Christ at a young age, but I just continued to go through the motions. As I grew up, I continued to go to church, but my personal walk was non existent. It was not until I came to Word of Life the summer of 2017 to work at The Ranch and Wild for Camp Crew. During that summer, I was surrounded with The Love of Christ and truly understood what it meant to have a relationship with the Lord. After High School I didn't know what to do, so I decided to come to the Word of Life Bible institute as a "gap year". I had no idea at the time That this "gap year" would turn into the rest of my life. During these two years I learned so much, including what it meant to live a life for the Gospel. I developed a passion for the Gospel, and missions and felt the Lord calling me to go. Here I am now with the amazing opportunity to be a missionary to South Africa.

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Life Verse

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
