In 2009, as Kathi Evans, CEO of Touching Lives Ministry, Inc and Touching Lives Kenya, looked out over a community that was patiently waiting for hours to be seen at a free medical camp in Nepal, she “heard” God’s Spirit “whispering” to her spirit. “Even with the best medicine this world has to offer every person here today will physically die.” To some that reminder could possibly lead to discouragement and even despair. To Kathi, it was a call to use her God-given gift of medicine to introduce others to the One who offers the much greater gift of eternal life.
Since then God has been growing a small “army” who have also taken up the call to reach out to the world with two powerful weapons: medicine and God’s word. A call to ministry, any ministry, is not an easy road but the Touching Lives family has learned and continues to learn that it is a rewarding and fulfilling journey. As Ion Morgan Cron states it in his book, Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim’s Tale, we are a “people who felt called out on a spiritual journey because of an inner ache, yearning, or ‘voice’ we couldn’t quiet.”
We invite you to take some time to get to know us through the pages of this website and, as you do, to listen for the “whisper” of God’s Spirit in your own.
