Judy leading our SURF THE BIBLE CHALLENGE
Judy’s association with ESD began in 2005 when Judy received a copy of the school newsletter With These Hands from a colleague at Van Asch in New Zealand. Judy read the newsletter and contacted the ESD principal to see how or if a teacher of the Deaf from New Zealand could be of any use to the ESD ministry. IN January 2006, Judy came to ESD to carry out some teacher training and workshops. She stayed on a few weeks to assist in the classrooms.
Visits in 2007 and 2009 on a tourist visa convinced Judy that God wanted her to make a longer commitment. She arrived in January 2010 on a religious worker’s visa and is permitted to remain in PR through May 2012. Pray with us for Judy’s application for an extension and for God’s will to be done.
