Ministry Description

I’ll be involved in many ministries, from being a volunteer assistant for Preschool- Grade 3 at the International School, discipling and mentoring students at the Bible Institute, working in camps, helping in the Children's Ministry at Word of Life Fellowship Church. Relationships are critical in a land with a different culture. My Vision is to reach one child at a time in order to reach their whole family.

About Katy

I thought I had made a decision for salvation while at church in 2000, but looking back, I realized I hadn’t really meant it. Now I know that I was truly saved in May of 2006 when my dad asked me if I wanted to be saved. I immediately said yes, because I knew I was missing something in my life. That something was the person of Jesus Christ. But, during the next couple of years while in my teens, I started doubting my salvation so I talked with my youth pastor’s wife many times in the next several weeks. She helped me understand that I had already been genuinely saved and I sensed a strong reassurance of my salvation. It was then that I dedicated my life to Christ. I was later baptized in obedience to the Lord’s command and to demonstrate to others my desire to follow Christ wherever He would lead. I did not know where I was going to go but I had Africa on my mind, since my great grandparents were pioneer missionaries starting in 1937 and served 40 years on that continent. Also, I have had several other relatives who have been missionaries in Africa. I have heard their stories but now my own stories of God’s work in Africa could be made as I am “On Mission for Him” to Uganda. I have had the opportunity to go on a two and a half year internship with WOL in Uganda from 2018-2020. There have been hard times during my internship but God has taught me that He is always with me and that I can trust Him with my life.
