About Me

Overland Park, Kansas
My name is Kate, I'm 19 years old, and on March 4th 2010 I was diagnosed with kidney cancer. I was told I had to get my left kidney removed- praise the Lord I have two! A month later they took out my kidney and told me the tumor was benign! I worship a God of miracles! I am a desperately dependent follower of Christ, who feeds on God's Word like manna! I know the healing hand of God and I believe He has plans to prosper me and not to harm me! I started this blog to communicate continued prayer requests, keep people up to date on my health and daily life, and most importantly share how Christ's love is transforming my heart everyday! Thank you for all your support! God Bless! PS I love to know who is reading the blog so comments are much encouraged and loved :)

IM HERE! So crazy!!! We have been painting basically everything that isn't living in the camp that we're staying in! we are practically in the middle of the jungle which has been so fun to explore! God is good! I am so thankful that I am in Belize right now! There has already been some awesome bonding in my class already! I know that Lord has something really special in store for me on this trip! He has already blessed me with Marianne, who is our cook and helps run the camp we're in. She is a breast cancer survivor and she loves to bake and decorate cakes just like me! I can't help but smile at how God just plops the perfect people in our lives in his absolutly perfect timing! The summary for day one in Belize is God is so incredibly good to me! Waaay more than I deserve! Keep praying for me... still got another 5 days ahead of me!

ya betta BELIZE it!!!

Wow I can't believe I'm leaving tomorrow! That is insane!!!! I have to be at the airport at 8am! I am so unbelievably excited for this trip I can't even put it into words! However, even with all this excitement I am still a little nervous! Not exactly sure how to pin point what I'm actually nervous about but I guess this is just a big step during this journey. Things to pray for.......

1) That God's hand would protect me physically, emotionally, and spiritually during the trip
2) That I would have countless opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ
3) That I would feel God's presence everywhere I went
4) That the enemy would not get a hold of me with anxiety or fear
5) That my family will truly be able to breathe and relax on their vacation to St. Thomas (BIG PRAYER REQUEST)
6) That my senior class and I could all come together on this trip as a body of believers

Thank you so much for all your prayers! I know I have been saying that countless times in the past week but I am sincerely grateful!
I will return from my trip Sunday, the 21st, late at night! Not exactly sure how I'm going to keep up with my blog in the next week while I'm gone but I might even journal out some stuff that my sister could post! We'll see! Have an awesome spring break!
