Sweet Hope Alabama!

Hi everyone!

I'm blogging now from Hope Church in Madison AL. Yes we are still serving here after the April tornadoes. It's amazing to see how God continues to use a tornado to bring about reconcilation and restoration of His people to Himself.

Please pray about joining our efforts here in Alabama! God is at work here and we'd love for you to join us in that work! We are currently roofing a church member's home this week. Come and see what the Lord is doing in Madison AL!

Today I'm off to visit Billy and Pat. They are homeowners we helped take down trees for in June. I'm excited to see them and excited to hear how they've been doing. Please pray for me as I meet with them and continue to show them the love of Christ and speak the truth in love when called to.

After the visit I'm starting my trek through the appalachain mtns to HOME!! Please pray for me as I travel and that me and my car arrive safely!

Love to see you in NC if you're there! Just let me know!

In Christ,
Katie :)

how awesome His works in man's behalf."

Bye for Now Interns!

Hi Everyone!

Chelsea my lovely communications superstar boarded her flight today back to PA so I am now resuming my role of posting on my blogs! I hope I can only do half a good a job as she did!

Dustin also left today, he started his drive back to Kansas so please pray for him and for his safety! Ronnie left on Saturday and Keri leaves Friday. It's crazy to me how fast time flies!

I'm truly starting to believe the verse in James that says "our lives are nothing but a mist, a vapor..." it reminds me how precious each day is that God gives me and that I am called to live today FOR HIM!

Last week we had an awesome team of 62 from Fargo ND! This week we have 20 volunteers from Dallas and this will be our last team until October. Please pray for them as they help us finish out some jobsites and pray for the relationships they are building. They were able to share the gospel today with a 15-year old who rode by on his bike. May God continue to work in this young man's heart as he interacts with the team this week!

Love yall mucho!
In Christ,
Katie :)
