Those of you who have followed my blog for a while might remember Kate, a young woman who was converting to the Amish. Many people think they’d like to become Amish but, in reality, very few have actually seen it through. Kate is one of those few. (Read more of Kate’s story here.)
Kate and I have kept in touch. I just received a letter from her and didn’t think she’d mind if I shared an update with you (so many have asked about her!):
Well, on August 25th I was baptized and taken into the Amish church as a member. Wow! I’m actually Amish! It’s amazing, God’s faithfulness!! He has provided so much strength and guidance. . . . I’m also a schoolteacher. I was asked to teach Special Ed at our private school, and I love it! It’s a challenge but mostly blessings! . . . Well, I better go get ready for the singing tonight. The youth girls are making supper, and we have to take a dish that starts with the first letter of our name! I’m bringing ketchup & potato wedges (kinda cheating but “K” is hard).
She sounds very happy and very committed.
