living in rwanda // for katie

katie is a beautiful, inspiring friend from my church who was recently diagnosed with cancer. even though i am halfway around the world in rwanda, the love that i have seen poured out for her and the number of people who have united in prayer has taken my breath away. and it has reminded me that although katie is about to fight the hardest battle in her life, God is good. he is using her to shine his light to thousands of people around the world. and it has reminded me how precious life is. so today i'm going to love just a little bit harder, pray just a little bit longer, smile just a little bit bigger, breathe in just a little bit deeper, and hold on just a little bit tighter to the truly important things in life---because God is good, and he has a perfect plan for every single one of us.

praying for you katie.
