Amazima Ministries

I was not emotionally prepared for how Kisses from Katie would grip my heart. I would recommend this book to anyone. Katie Davis understands what it means to be the hands and feet of Jesus, what it means to love "the least of these." And she has found such joy in serving. Continually in the book she explains that you can't teach people about the love of Jesus without showing them the love of Jesus. Amazima is the non-profit organization that she started in 2008. In 2011 Amazima sent over 400 children to school for the year, provided over 300,00 lunches to the neighboring community of Masese, provided over 1500 people with medical care, and helped 19 women to provide for their families through making and selling necklaces. And it all started with an 18 year old girl who followed the Lord's calling for her life. She left a comfortable life in Brentwood,TN and moved to Uganda where she ended up becoming a mother to 14 little girls. Most 18 year old girls would not break up with the love of their life and leave a loving family to move across the world and serve the Lord. Watch these two videos to get a small glimpse into the ministry or follow the link to the website below. We all have a lot  to learn from Katie Davis.
