Millie Young is very focused and single-minded when she commits to a project.  She accomplishes a staggering amount of work for a person who is eighty-one. Melinda and John Martyn assisted Millie on a recent mission trip to Colombia. John accused Millie of lying about her age as she worked harder and longer than many people twenty years younger are capable of managing.

One of their activities was painting at the Interamerican Christian High School in Bogotá. It is a multistory building. Millie nimbly squatted, knelt, and stood as she painted the stairwell and lower half of the wall. Even though traveling up and down the stairs many times was physically demanding, Millie’s only complaint was that she is climbing stairs more slowly than in the past.

Millie is committed and energized when God has given her a task to accomplish. What an inspiration she is!
