About the Author
Katherine has been a missionary in Uganda for over 20 years and has been working in a village called Kamonkoli. She has worked to make a difference in the lives of children and has seen many grow into strong Christian leaders. This is a girl who says she was a “Nobody” but to God she was “Somebody.”
When William Carey opened the modern missionary movement in 1793, he said to his supporters, “I will go down into the well; you hold on to the ropes for me.”
In 1994, Katherine Hines left a successful career in America and descended into the well of poverty and deprivation in rural Uganda. She embraced the children, worked to heal their broken hearts and fill their lives with both daily bread and everlasting bread.
This book will lower you down “into the well” where you can see the needs, hear the voices, and feel the heartbeats of these innocent ones. You’ll see how one population of children have been transformed into beautiful and productive young adults, who are a credit to their nation and a testament to the power of Christ.
