7.16.16 While there are many photos I could post with Katie, I choose this one because it makes me laugh through the tearful “bye for now” that happened at 5am. Katie, you’re a joy & I am forever grateful for your friendship & living this Haiti life together for many years. Keep shining bright, beautiful friend! Can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for you next.
