Katye's love of missions first started when she traveled to Mexico City with the Global Urban Trek. She went back to Mexico City with the Trek two more times, and her experiences there led to Oakland, CA. In Oakland she was an intern with Servant Partners, and she works for InterVarsity as the National Coordinator of Urban Programs. Katye loves reading anything by Henri Nouwen or Madeleine L’Engle, cooking meals with friends, and practicing Spanish with her neighbors. She blogs about mourning and hope at kmcmylonggoodbye.blogspot.com.
