NEWS: Youth Volunteers are Blessing ARDF

ISAAC Jernigan — Youngest ARDF Advocate

Fifteen year old Isaac Jernigan was fourteen when he signed on as an ARDF Advocate “to help people who need help and to tell other people how they can help the same people. It’s a really good thing to do for people who are being persecuted.” In June he attended the ACNA Provincial Assembly where he was impressed with Baroness Cox’s talk and her experiences.

When asked for a quote, his first thought was the Bible verse “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13). He continued, “St. Paul was totally right when he wrote this. Don’t let barriers get in your way of God’s intention for you. If God calls you to help people who are in need, don’t let other things get in the way of that. Just do it!”

Isaac’s many other interests include a second degree black belt in Taekwondo. He loves all kinds of games, running, reading science fiction, photography, and drawing. He is a member of the youth group at Church of the Ascension (since he’s the only teen in his congregation of St. Elizabeth’s), Vice President of the Economy 4-H, a library volunteer, and on rare occasions a reluctant substitute pianist.

Recently, Isaac encouraged his two younger brothers to support ARDF. The 3 boys donated $21,36 to ARDF. Isaac would like to challenge each of you to contribute $25 or more to ARDF today.
