Before coming to IFI, God led me down a series of roads I never would have imagined would come together to lead me here to this opportunity at IFI. Growing up, I was always involved in a local church with my mom. The church was very much involved in raising funds to translate the Bible into a tribe’s own language so they could read the word for themselves.

During times of loneliness, with a lack of close Christian friends, I fell in love with stories. At first, it was merely just a lot of reading, but as my writing skills matured, I began to create my own stories. Upon graduating with my English degree from The OSU Lima Branch, I also graduated with a minor in Creative Writing where I learned to love the art of writing and storytelling even more.

Now, at IFI, I have the chance to use all of these experiences to help others. I can work to help spread the gospel to other parts of the world just as I did in church growing up. I know and can understand the feeling of loneliness that International Students have when coming to America, which means I can identify with them. Furthermore, with my writing skills and love of stories, I can help to spread not only the story of Jesus but the stories of International Students from around the world and their own journeys.

★ IFI’s Mission: To extend life-changing hospitality and friendship to international students out of reverence to Jesus.
★ Katie’s Mission: To share the story of IFI staff, partners, volunteers, and international students to reach even more people with the love of Jesus.
