I just read this most amazing book! My niece told me about it and I downloaded it on my Kindle to read. It wasn't a book I was reviewing, but one I read for pleasure...or so I thought. This book has actually made me uncomfortable with where I am and where I should be.
The story is about Katie. On her 16th birthday, Katie told her parents she wanted to spend a year doing mission work before she went to college. During her senior year of high school, her parents allowed her to take a 3-week trip to an orphanage in Uganda--hoping she'd get the notion out of her system. Her mom actually went with her. But instead of getting the notion out of her system, she found where she wanted to be.
I won't spoil the story for you, but I will tell you (because it's on the first page of the book), that she begins adopting children after she moves there...at 19 years old. She now has 14 children.
You have GOT to read this book. I downloaded it yesterday and was up until 3 a.m. finishing the book. And my life, my ministry, my outlook will never be the same. You can also follow her on her blog, but please read the book first--it will mean so much more!
The name of her ministry is Amazima which means TRUTH in the Ugandan language. Andy & I have both decided to buy books for people in our ministries to read. I think it will change lives right here in Borger. I've added a banner to the right >>>>>.
PLEASE go buy this book and read it!!!!!
