Like pretty much anyone who has and will watch this video, I think Katie is amazing. And humble. And her humility is not one of meekness, self-deprecation, or false modesty, but a humility that challenges others to rise up to the Biblical call to care for the poor.
"People say to me all the time, wow, you are so lucky that you found what God wants you to do with your life! And I kinda look at those people and think, well, I didn't find it, it was just in the Bible, and so as someone who calls themselves a Christian, I mean it's very apparent that you are to love the Lord with all your heart and then you're to love your neighbor as yourself. And myself doesn't want to be starving. And so I don't want other people in the world to be starving."If at the age of 18 she could leave a familiar, comfortable life to serve in Uganda, and if at the age of 21 as a single female she could take on three adoptive children, and if at the age of 23 over a dozen girls call her Mommy, then what the heck is my excuse...for anything?
