Friday Focus: Judah

Per suggestion from my dear readers, I will be highlighting on of my children each week in a series called: Friday Focus

Judah is fifteen years old. You don’t see him on the blog much these days because the only thing he hates more than having his picture taken is being featured on this blog. No worries, today’s post was approved by him.

Judah is active in Boy Scouts. He enjoys running, biking and Nerf Guns. He often spends his spare time modifying his Nerf Guns from YouTube tutorials. He enjoys LEGO and building models of WWI and WWII aircraft. Judah is a history buff, a great student and has an amazing recall after reading things just once.

Judah is a dependable, hard worker which will come in handy when…he heads to Zambia this summer with Teen Missions International! You might recognize that name because Teen Missions is where Chuck and I met. It is also the organization that Adalia headed to Honduras with in 2011.

Judah’s Team project will be to build a bridge to a village that is not accessible during the rainy season. This will enable the local children to travel to school safely and will provide access to medical care for the villagers.

We are so excited for him. If you are interested in supporting Judah through prayer, donation or (if you’re local) hiring him to work, contact me. He has prayers cards and support letters that can be mailed out. Judah has a sizable chunk of money to raise. He is willing to do almost any work: yard work, painting, housework, etc. Also, if you’re local, we will be collecting any and all scrap metal to be recycled. All proceeds will go directly toward his summer trip.

    I have commented a few times here, but not often. I enjoy your blog very much, Renee. I have to comment on this post, because I went to Zambia with Teen Missions in 1998. One of the coolest things I ever got to do! And it was amazing seeing how God provided the money I needed to go, and made a special way for me to go (since I live in France). Anyway, go Judah! If you will let your Mom keep us updated through the blog about your trip, I will definitely pray for you when I read here. Actually I will right now. And I am sure many other people will too.

    Just in case you are interested, my tent-mate from my Zambia trip lives somewhat close to you. She is studying to be a naturopathic doctor and has a blog at
