Hello, Thank you for visiting my page and reading my story. My name is Katie Temple. I am a missionary with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and have served as a missionary in the local church, foreign nations, and houses of prayer over the last 23 years. In 2014 Jesus stirred my heart for people groups that are *unreached* and *unengaged* in the Middle East and for laborers to be sent there to preach the gospel. I have traveled and spent time in this region of the earth multiple times over the last 7 years. In 2018, I had an encounter that opened my heart to a nation in Central Asia. Since that time I’ve been praying for the people groups in this region and waiting for the Lord to open the door so that I could go and share the good news of Jesus Christ in love and power to them. 

Fast forward to February 2023, I met up with some dear friends of mine, who let me know they were going to help pioneer a new Fire and Fragrance YWAM base in the Nashville area. At that time my heart was moved but I was on my way to help pioneer a second ministry hub in Florida. I gave them a big high five and told them that praying for them. Over the last 23 years, the nations have never left my heart or my process in missions and ministry. So much so that I’ve been to many various nations in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and more. This past October, as I was visiting my YWAM friends again they let me know that the ministry base they are starting would send laborers to Central Asia specifically to the nation that God put on my heart in 2018! I began to weep because I knew this was the next door that God was opening in my life so that I could GO (Matt 28:18-20) and lead the next generation so that we could be a witness for the gospel to the ends of the earth. 

After much prayer, seeking the Lord, and wise counsel I decided to move to Nashville and join the FF YWAM pioneering team. Along with other YWAM leaders and staff, we will be training and sending laborers (Matt 9:37-38) from this location. We believe that it’s not just a good idea but the gospel and the need for the laborers is urgent in this hour that we live.

Will you join me in both praying for me as well as giving financial support so that I can effectively go to these nations and share the love of Jesus?

*Unreached* – An unreached or least-reached people is a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize that people group. Less than or equal to 5% Christian Adherent AND less than or equal to 2% Evangelical.
*Unengaged* – An unengaged unreached people group (UUPG) has no known active church planting underway. According to the IMB Global Research Office: “A people group is engaged when a church planting strategy, consistent with evangelical faith and practice, is under implementation.
