Someone who truly inspires me is Katie Davis, who at 18 moved to Uganda and is now a parent to 18 girls, but that’s only the beginning of her reach. She is involved with the lives of so many all around her, has feeding programs, and blogs openly about her experiences, good and bad, but through it all praises God–even when it’s harder than I could ever imagine. Heartbreaking even.
Here is an except from her book that particularly stuck with me:
“Sometimes working in a Third World Country makes me feel like I am emptying the ocean with an eyedropper. And just when I have about half a cup full of water it rains:: more orphaned children from the north migrate to where I live, more abandoned and dead babies are found, more people are infected with HIV. It is enough to discourage even the most passionate and enthusiastic person……love is the reason I just keep filling up my little eyedropper, keep filling it up and emptying my ocean one drop at a time. I’m not here to eliminate poverty, to eradicate disease, to put a stop to people abandoning babies. I’m just here to love.”
