What would cause an eighteen-year-old old senior class president and homecoming queen from Nashville, Tennessee, to disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brotherand#8217;s heart, lose all but a handful of her friends (because the rest of them think she has gone off the deep end), and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she knew only one person but didnand#8217;t know any of the language? A passion to make a difference. Katie Davis left over Christmas break her senior year for a short mission trip to Uganda and her life was turned completely inside out. She found herself so moved by the people and children of Uganda that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. She has given up a relatively comfortable lifeand#8212;at a young ageand#8212;to care for the less fortunate of this world. She was so moved by the need she witnessed, sheand#8217;s centered her life around meeting that need. Katie, a charismatic and articulate young woman, is in the process of andlt;iandgt;adoptingandlt;/iandgt; thirteen children in Uganda, and she completely trusts God for daily provision for her and her family. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Despite the rough conditions in which Katie lives, she has found a life of service to God to be one of great joy. Katieand#8217;s children bring constant delight and help her help others by welcoming whoever comes to their door. As the challenges grow, so does Katieand#8217;s faith and her certainty that what sheand#8217;s doing in Uganda, one person at a time, will have far-reaching rewards. It isnand#8217;t the life she planned, but it is the life she loves.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;To further her reach into the needs of Ugandans, Katie established Amazima Ministries. The ministry matches orphaned children with sponors worldwide. Each sponsorand#8217;s $300/year provides schooling, school supplies, three hot meals a day, minor medical care, and spiritual encouragement. Katie expected to have forty children in the program; she had signed up 150 by January 2008; today it sponsors over 400. Another aspect of the ministry is a feeding program created for the displaced Karamojong peopleand#8212;Ugandaand#8217;s poorest citizens. The program feeds lunch to over 1,200 children Monday-Friday and sends them home with a plate of food; it also offers basic medical care, Bible study, and general health training.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Katie Davis is more than fascinating, sheand#8217;s inspiring, as she has wholeheartedly answered the call to serve.

Review:

"When an 18-year-old from Nashville visits Uganda on a mission trip, she is so affected that she moves back for one year to teach in an orphanage. Within a short time she discovers the needs around her are so great that she feels led to start a nonprofit that feeds, educates, and shows the love of God to children in Uganda. Finally faced with a choice between the United States, her parents' wishes for her college education, her boyfriend, and staying in Uganda, Katie must decide: will she give up her life and buy a one-way ticket to Uganda? As the subtitle suggests, this is a story of an amazing young woman with no limits to love. Davis eventually adopts — one by one or in groups of siblings — 14 children, with hundreds more being sponsored through the nonprofit Amazima (truth) Ministries she establishes. This is an emotionally charged and vivid account of a person following in the footsteps of Mother Teresa, asking God, 'Whom would you have me help today?' and believing the answer is right before the eyes of the one praying that prayer.

Absolutely love this book! Katie is an amazing woman who tells her story of leaving 'home', moving to Uganda, adopting numerous girls of different ages, and figuring out what home really is (both in the U.S. and Uganda). Though Katie says she still has a lot to figure out - and is doing so daily - this book has numerous pondering points which everyone should take the time to consider. Written with such lightheartedness, yet considerable depth, you'd be missing out not to pick this one up.
