Blackburn, Katy Image

Katy has grown up and lived in Birmingham, AL basically her whole life, and she is so thankful for the ways that God has blessed her through a wonderful, Christ-following family, a supportive church, and friends who know her and love her well.

She has a love for traveling that has only grown since she went on a mission trip to Northern Ireland in high school, and she loves seeing the world through different cultures' perspectives. In college she studied abroad in London, UK and felt God's call to one day return to spread his Gospel to the people there. After experiencing LEAP week in Southall and Harrow on a short term trip in 2019, God put a desire in her heart to specifically return to serve the South Asians in these areas.

She began her 2 year term in Southall in March 2021, and she has been encouraged and challenged in so many ways as God works in her and through her during this time. She can't wait to see what else He has in store!
