I started living out of a suitcase on June 1, 2017 and that is when #kathysadventures2017 began. This week I happily unpacked everything!
Over the last 6 1/2 weeks I traveled more than 4,800 kilometers over land and sea (and didn’t throw up overboard) and slept in at least 20 different beds. I loved every stop, every visit and every connecting time I had with others. But I won’t lie, I’m happy to be back home and no longer living out of a suitcase!
I absolutely loved seeing so many people, and I know I missed a lot along the way as well. I loved being able to share about what I do, what I love and about what God is doing. I met many new faces and made new friends as well. I loved having coffee with good friends, mentors and life-giving people, it ‘filled me up’! I only wish my time hadn’t gone by so quickly – those moments were so great.
I was also able to take my first visit to Newfoundland this year. Wow! I now know why they call it God’s country, because it truly is. Multiple times while travelling I wished I could blink and take a photo, so many amazing sites. I saw my first iceberg and sadly missed the whales, they came out after I left, or so I heard.
GOAL UPDATE: My goals while in Canada, to raise $25,000 for the ministry of Schools of Hope and to get 60 of our children sponsored through ChildCARE Plus.

I love that I get to be a part of God’s big adventure … you can too!
