Working at a smaller high school, you get the opportunity to know all of the kids, some of them better than others. Working on grad committee lets me know a lot of our grade 12’s especially well.

The grade 12 student that has been on my mind so often as of late is Kaitlin. Kaitlin transferred to Immanuel last year, and has been a great addition! She found last year, just after her 16th birthday, that she had an inoperable brain tumor. The journey has been long, but she’s now been home since before Christmas. The tumors seem to be winning, and the doctors say there’s nothing left to be done.

Thankfully we don’t believe in the ultimate authority of the doctors. We are still praying for a miracle for this beautiful girl and her family, and if it’s God’s will, it’ll happen.

In the meantime, Kaitlin received a wish from the Make a Wish Foundation, and chose her wish to be a well for a village in Uganda, through Compassion Canada. Well, Kaitlin’s Wish is quickly becoming Kaitlin’s legacy, as many more people are coming alongside her to sponsor other projects. Last I heard, 3 other wells have already been financed, with many more people donating. Check it out….Kaitlin’s Wish
