Kate was raised in a Christian home by parents who were involved in local and global missions. She went on her first short-term mission trip to La Ceiba, Honduras, at the age of twelve. It was here that she felt God gently nudging her to serve His people—whether that be locally or internationally.
Kate spent three months in Brno, Czech Republic, in the fall of 2016. While serving with the Global Partners team, she felt the call to return to Czech.
Kate feels she is called to abandon self-reliance, trust in Him, and live and serve alongside the people of the Czech Republic. The lyrics from Hillsong United’s song “Oceans” creates a perfect image of what she feels called to do—”Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.”
