A MISSION OF LOVE – KATHY PRICE *
Kathy Price is the founder and director of an all-volunteer organization called Mission of Love. It is the single largest user of the Denton Program, which uses military cargo planes to ship disaster relief, medical and educational supplies, and building supplies. These supplies are shipped for free all over the world, to developing countries. Kathy’s mission is to help children and families living in poverty who are living in destitute situations. She has built hospitals, schools, orphanages and hospices for indigenous people in Guatemala; Mexico; Pine Ridge, SD; and in other countries. She is an angel walking among us.
Her motto is “Know that we are not here to save the world but in this world to touch the hands and hearts that are within our reach.” She has helped communities devastated by tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, flooding, volcanoes and famine. She is truly one of the most selfless people I have encountered in my life, and she is a mentor and teacher. Kathy attracts donations of food, money, supplies, and the services of doctors and nurses who travel to give free cleft lip and palate surgeries. She is tireless and selfless, and an inspiration to all who know her.
