Katie Kondo
State Coordinator

In 1987, our son was having issues in elementary school. My neighbor, a former teacher, and I met to pray for our first-grade sons. We soon heard Fern on the Focus on the Family radio broadcast and our mission was born!

I exchanged fear for faith as I eagerly welcomed the prayer strategy, using the Word of God within the simplicity of the four steps. Each year the Lord has provided prayer partners. I have been blessed to discover the gracious spirit displayed by women on all levels of this ministry.

My husband, Mark, our son Ross and his wife Liz, and our daughter Mikey, all serve in Public Education. And we have five well-loved, young grandchildren.

Recently I counted the number of schools my family has attended or schools where they have been on staff. In 30 years of Moms in Prayer, I have prayed for over 30 schools!

What a privilege it has been to encourage students, teachers, staff and administrators with the eternal power of prayer.

My prayer is that Washington State will be AWASH in the life-changing power of the love of Christ.
