Judah Brown medical expenses

$24,885 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 497 people in 33 months
Ed B Ziegler
on behalf of Mark Brown
 SPRING, TX
The First notice came: Judah has drowned - weak heart beat, not breathing. Ambulance to hospital now. Pray.

The Second notice came: Update on Judah: he is alive, first miracle. But non responsive, in Pediatric Intensive Care. Keep praying, its very serious.

We wondered what could be going on. 

A note about what happened: "We were at a BBQ last night and the kids were swimming. Judah got out of the pool and wanted his floaty off and to dry off. He somehow got back into the pool, without his floaty, and no one saw it. We had all been watching the kids. It would have been only a minute or so since we had last seen him out of the pool, when we noticed he wasn't among the other kids. It was several minutes before we found him and when we did, he was under the water. Took him out, called 911 and Mark did CPR until the ambulance came. Got him to hospital and he is now in PICU, in critical condition. He was in cardiac arrest for, they are guessing,around 35 minutes,most of which was resuscitation time. He is alive, but on machines that are helping him breathe and medicines that are helping his heart function."

"The next 48 hours are critical for him. They don't know what damage there is yet, or to what extent his brain will be affected or even if he will survive."

"Mark and I are staying in the hospital. We have been up most of the night with Judah. They are letting us be with Judah most of the time."

"Ethan and Hannah saw everything happen."

"Our hearts are breaking. Please pray hard. Pray for our little boy's life. We need a miracle now."

We Prayed along with Mark and Christi and the Doctors working to save Judah.  

More Updates: We live in hope. There is a small response in his right eye, left there is nothing. They were going to see if he is brain dead, but for now are holding off. Its a tiny slither of hope, but Christi Brown and I have decided that until the Medical team categorically declare him dead, we will keep on believing and hoping in a miracle.

Then the one we dreaded:
Judah Levi Brown has gone to be with Jesus. His official time of death was tonight, 9/26/16 at 9:51pm.

Mark and Christi need help paying for the medical expenses associated with trying to save their precious Judah.  This money will be used to pay the expenses for medical treatment. 

Losing a child is the worst kind of loss, even when we know that child has gone to be with our loving savior Jesus Christ and will be forever with us in spirit.  There is no time or energy for anything but grief and sadness at this time.  Your help with bills will allow the Browns to take care of what they need to and not add more worry to an already hard time. 

Please consider what you can give to help.  

Any extra funds raised beyond what is required for medical expenses will be donated to Scripture Union USA in honor of Judah's memory, to help share the love of Jesus with kids.

All glory to God for his grace and peace on earth and with us.

RIP Judah Levi Brown

‘Christi and Mark have been deeply moved by your generosity in donating towards Judah’s medical costs. Through your wonderful generosity, they were able to meet the required costs so far. In our description we stated,

‘Any extra funds raised beyond what is required for medical expenses will be donated to Scripture Union USA in honor of Judah's memory, to help share the love of Jesus with kids.’

Scripture Union USA have decided that the funds would be better used for their family as the request was for a personal matter. So they don’t want the extra funds. Which is why I am writing to you, to see if you are ok with any extra funds raised going to Mark and Christi Brown for them to spend as they see fit. If you have an issue with this and would like a refund, please email Mark at revbrownsky@gmail.com

Mark and Christi have asked me to let everyone know they are in awe of the support they have received. They will be figuring out all of the expenses and donate anything that is left to Scripture Union to continue to share the gospel around the world.

We are close to $20000 now as we approach Judah' viewing today and funeral tomorrow.

Remember that these funds will also help with funeral costs as Mark and Christi lay their baby to rest.

As we journey on the very bad path, let us not forget that God is Good, all the time. All the time, God is Good.

One day and we've hit $13,000!
Mark and Christi are humbled by your generosity. This will go a long way to help. Keep sharing the page and we will remove finances from the stresses they have to worry about.

God bless you all.

How dare you exploit your sons' death by asking people to reward you with 50K dollars? You and your wife should have been watching him. And why do you have 7 children without insurance? This is your 4th or 5th Gofundme for medical expenses. No way is it 50K for a 3 year old that drowned. Too bad you were so busy praying and getting attention from others that you didn't keep your eye on that baby. You should be paying the world 50K. I'm sickened by your narcisissm. All you do is quote yourself. Here's a quote, "Never go and pray with others and ignore your three year old". Mariann Ventura. That boy will never go to 1st grade. He will never have another Christmas. And what do you want? Money from strangers. I will NEVER be a Christian again. If this is an example of a Christian it's not me. You left four children in Australia, then married Christie. Then had a baby which in my opinion you murdered by neglect. I look at your page from time to time. But I can only look at your face so many times. And your sentences you quote. I should do that. Never go and pray with a bunch of people and ignore your drowning child. Mariann Ventura. He didn't die quick. It took time. He suffered. He was wondering where Mom and Dad were. Mom and Dad were too busy to care where you were Judah. So you drowned. So they exploit you now. Pictures of your grave. He plagiarizes. He tried to steal the Serenity prayer. Now he needs 50K dollars. I would love to see the itemized bill. And why don't your children have health insurance? Is it because Gofundme takes care of your bills. People need to look into all your accounts with this site. It's OK. You believe in God, heaven and hell. Not one tear have I seen. But lots of pictures and sentence quotes like your Plato or the Pope. You are not even ordained. You are one of those pastors that can't give Holy Communion. Why Christie hasn't told you to hit the bricks is beyond me. I'm sickened by the both of you. Thank you for turning me into an Athiest. That last thing I want to be is anything like you. You are a monster.
