Hey sweet friends! My name is Kate Dufour. I am currently nineteen years old. I encountered Jesus my senior year of high school and since then my life has been radically changed. If you ever wanna hear my testimony let’s grab a cup of coffee and I’ll tell ya!
After graduating high school my plan was to pursue nursing school. As you might know the Lord typically has different yet better plans. I felt called to do overseas missions and originally planned to take one gap year. As I prepared for this nine month missions trip the Lord taught me so much about His heart and what it truly means to surrender and obey. I ended up not pursuing a set nine month mission but was instead called to Kids International Ministries in the Philippines. There I served for two months and fell in love with the country. I participated in many different ministries whether it was local feedings, leading children’s bible studies, assisting in a birthing clinic, and simply building relationships to love others well. The Lord is moving powerfully in this nation.
I returned back to the states for about two months and then found my way back to the Philippines. While away I kept praying over different opportunities the Lord was placing in my lap. I left the U.S. again, this time with a team of 14 other gals with an organization called the World Race Semesters. I served with them for three sweet months!
During the semesters trip God really placed it on my heart to serve as a missionary here in the Philippines long term. After much prayer I realized this calling here is something I absolutely have peace over. I am now living in Cainta, located near Manila and serving as a missionary for Kids International Ministries. I am now leading the Hope Alive Birthing Clinic. The clinic is a safe place for women to come from all over and receive free prenatal healthcare. It’s a privilege to be doing ministry full time. Being able to meet physical needs of those around me, while sharing the good news is the sweetest. God is so good!
I’ve grown so much as a disciple of Christ. I’m learning how to best love others and lead a life of truth drenched with grace. I’ve tasted and seen the His goodness. I’ve been learning to surrender my life each day to the Lord. As I do this He fills me to the brim with peace and energy to see Kingdom come. I am passionate about sharing this insane, pure, redeeming love of Christ that changed my whole life. There’s a lot more about me I’d love to share but I would much rather tell you in person. Follow my blog if you want to hear about what the Lord is teaching me and see the goodness He pours out everywhere and anywhere!
