Meet Katie

This is Katie Davis. She is 21 years old from Nashville Tennesee.

1 year of mission work in Uganda changed her life.

After graduating from highschool, she signed up to be a kindergarten teacher in Uganda.
Even though she agreed to attend college after that year, God had different plans for Katie.

She returned to Uganda.

She loves the forgotten.

"They are real people. They are my friends. They are God's children."

"Please pray specifically for Nabakoza as she may be nearing the end of her life. At 23, she weighs just 37 pounds (not typos.) She has been severely neglected all her life. My sweet friends Renee and Shana drove 2 hours to the hospital in Kampala only to be told that they would not take her, she was too far gone. After trying four different hospitals, all claiming they couldn't help, they brought her home where we are just trying to keep her warm and cuddled and covered with the love of Jesus."
She adopted 14 girls.

She feeds 1600 orphans and poor children everyday through Amazima Ministries, that she founded when she was 19.
She opened a school, started a work program for mothers so they won't turn to prostitution, she helps young men and women achieve higher learning through vocational programs and university assistance.

She nurses babies back to health by providing foster care.

She loves God above everything.
She is just 1 average person.

Meet Katie.
