Kiwi Delight

Kathrine Young is 26 years old and from Christ Church, New Zealand.  She was raised in a strong Christian family and doing something to serve God was not something to possibly consider for a life was a given.  Kathrine started praying for Sudan when she was eight years old and also knew at a very young age that she wanted to be a nurse, so coming to South Sudan last year to serve at House of Hope Hospital here at Harvesters was a natural.  She told me she is a quite, shy, reserved type of person not proned to stepping outside of the box to far.  She is being humble.  This is a very brave young woman who is part of a team doing extra ordinary things for some very needy people in a very tough environment.  Kathrine is a kick to be around, although I have to admit I have as much trouble with her accent as I do the Africans.  That's alright, she puts up with me asking her to repent herself all the time.

One of the problems here is that kids are brought to the hospital to late for help and they die.  I ask Kathrine how she deals with the constant presence of death.  At the end of day she said she cries out to and sometimes wrestles with God,  reads poetry and listens to Christian music.  She also said that you have to have a good theology of pain, suffering, and death.

Kathrine is truly a Kiwi Delight.....
