Meet Our Teammate: Kathy Clow

Kathy ClowFor five-years before joining us in Honduras Kathy and her family served with MTW in Reynosa, Mexico. She joined our team in the Spring of 2010 and she and her husband John are here for good.

Kathy, who is a mom of four, grew up in Georgia and graduated college with a degree in special education

Kathy is our team’s primary hospitality coordinator. She also runs our team’s scholarship program, which requires her to manage the four kids that we are supporting through high school. She is a great discipler of women and girls in formal and informal settings. Kathy is also very active in our team’s numerous other ministries.

Kathy has an amazing rapport with the Honduran kids and adults alike. Her confidence and compassionate heart cause people to be drawn to her. She possesses an attentive ear, a quick smile and a firm hug. Kathy is drawn to the less fortunate and those in greatest need.

Our team and our family are so fortunate to have Kathy on our side. Her honest love for us all is evident and appreciated. She is a great friend and mother to our entire team. She is genuinely loved and appreciated by each us.

Please pray for Kathy as she juggles the often conflicting roles of missionary, mother to four and wife.
