Dear family and friends…
Many who read these updates were journeying and praying for our family during Judson’s illness, crying out to God with us for healing. God did not heal our son. But in the process, he is giving us a ministry of comfort to those who suffer.
This update is to ask you to consider partnering with us again in prayer, this time crying out to God with us for the healing of many hearts through Jud’s story.
We have been lead to start a ministry, Judson’s Legacy, in honor of our boy. It will exist to encourage, challenge, and comfort people with the hope of Jesus Christ through writing, speaking, and audio/visual media. In addition, we will partner with compassionate organizations, like Hunter’s Hope, that minister to those who suffer.
If we have learned anything through Judson’s affliction, it is that God moves mightily in people’s hearts when his Church comes together bowed before the Throne, calling upon the Lord to manifest his kingdom here on earth. Our God is a God of comfort, reflecting his heavenly reign. He has comforted our family in our troubles and we long to extend that comfort to others (2 Corinthians 1:4).
As I write this letter, Judson’s book, Eyes that See, is now in the hands of the printer. Would you join us in prayer for this project? Would you ask our Father to pour out his Spirit through the pages of this book, that all who read would encounter God in a new or fresh way? Would you ask the Lord to begin preparing hearts to pick up and read Judson’s story? Would you ask God to continue to make our Juddy a blessing? Whether it be people reading the book, or invitations to speak, or opportunities to write more articles, or through watching Judson’s videos, would you ask God to open doors for this ministry? Please also pray that God would place a hedge of protection around our family as we further engage this battle that is not against flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12).
We believe he is calling us to use the gifts he has given us coupled with the journey and story that has become ours. We want to be faithful.
We are incredibly grateful for your partnership in prayer, support, and love!
