Lineman - John Udell & Family Fund

On August 17, 2012 John Udell of Yucca Valley was electrocuted as he was working on high voltage power lines which were believed to be de-energized. It is a miracle that he survived. The family has had to relocate to help John in this fight for his life which will take many months. The financial burden is overwhelming at a time when they need to be focused on John's recovery and the family healing from this tragedy. 


I am John Udell's aunt and I have loved him since he was born. As you can see he is now a big wonderful family man. For those of you who don't know John is a devoted father, a loving husband, a beloved son, brother, grandson, son-in-law, uncle, nephew, friend and co-worker to so many that love him dearly, and can't imagine a world without his influence. John is a great leader with a heart as big as Texas. All those who know him love him.


When I think of how John was faithfully performing his work duties to be part of helping each one of us have the modern convenience of electricity, I know that there are many that will want to help ease the Udell family's burden. I ask that you will keep them in prayer first and foremost. And for all of you who contribute financially, please know that your generosity is greatly appreciated, and we know that God will bless your efforts. Many have already reached out to help, and to those we are forever grateful.


We believe John will recover by the grace of God and that he will go on to continue to bless all those that know him.
