religion that is pure and undefiled: pictures from Kat :)

Just a few minutes ago, I went on Facebook with every intention to just check messages and no more!  Knowing me though, I saw a friend of mine, Katherine, and I clicked on her profile.  Lo and behold, I was on Facebook, and instead of checking messages, I began to click through pictures from her mission work this past summer.

Not only were the pictures pretty, but they were captivating.  I clicked through them, looking at the faces of those precious children.  They live in a way that I can not even imagine, and yet by the smiles on their faces, it made me wonder if they know something about life that we don’t know… that I don’t know…



Katherine, I hope you don’t mind, but I want to share your talent with whoever may stop by.  Your pictures are a true testament to the talent that God has given you with a camera 😉  I love you and thanks so much for sharing your mission in the Philippines here with us!


“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this:

to visit orphans and widows in their affliction,

and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”

James 1:27


“But let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart

with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit,

which in God’s sight,

is very precious.”

1 Peter 3:4


“I stretch out my hands to you;

my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.


Psalm 143:6

“The little children were brought to Jesus that he might lay his hands on them and pray.

The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said,

‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them,

for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.’

And he laid his hands on them…”

Matthew 19:13-15


thanks, Kat 🙂

What a beautiful woman of God, you are!

  1. LOVE this. This is one of the many places where God’s heart is raw and immediate. I think we distance ourselves from Him through media and busyness, but on the mission field He is REAL and He is HERE. Thanks for sharing these.

  2. I was looking for a photograph..for a section in our website where there are photograhs with the the Word of God written on them…I was looking for a photograph of a dry land, for Psal 143:6..and I found yours. The one with the child hiding his face…he seems to be praying…
    No words…Here’s what I was looking for….More than just the land…
    Apologies for my English…
    I hope you got the meaning…
    That’s why I love photographs, too…They speak without words…
    That one is really very evocative…
    I don’t know if I can ask: I’ll do: can we use yours for our website?
    Thank you in advance..
    and thank you for sharing your photos and your faith….

    • Thank you, and you may use the picture! I saw your website and that it is in Italian. If you speak Spanish, so do I, but I don’t know much Italian but I will try. Your English is good though, and I understood! 🙂 Qual è il suo indirizzo e-mail? Grazie per leggere mio sito internet.
