“People will forget what you said; people will forget what you did; but people will never forget how you made them feel”
Wife. Mother. Grandmother. Missionary. Motivational Speaker. Animal Lover.
Kate Gamble lives her life to the fullest by giving and serving others.
She has always believed in the power of second chances. When she experienced hers, she knew that helping others in need of their own second chance was the path to a blessed and abundant life.
In the spring of 2002, Kate joined Steve as Missions Director of their church and began a journey that would take her places she had never dreamed of. “Once you hold a child in your arms that you believe to be an infant but find that, due to malnutrition, she is actually 9-months old, you can’t help but become a different person.”
Kate brings her own experience, strong faith, and unparalleled passion to her current role as Co-Director of Heartbeat International Ministries. Whether teaching women’s workshops in shelters, poor villages, prisons, at home, and as far away as Africa and the Ukraine, her incredible energy helps others find hope in their situation.
A devoted animal lover, Kate hopes to provide shelter to abused and neglected rescue animals on her farm down South. This halfway house will provide a temporary home to animals, saving them from slaughter and unnecessary euthanization.
She and Steve have six children, seven grandchildren, eight rescue horses, four rescue dogs, and a rescue donkey. Kate is looking forward to spending the next chapter of her life organizing more outreaches, feeding more hungry, saving more people and animals, and playing with more grandchildren.
