Jedidiah Hogan

Jedidiah was born on November 2nd, 1994 in a home birth in his family’s apartment in Erdenet, Mongolia – the first foreign baby ever born in the city. Jedidiah was born into a YWAM family to Brian and Louise Hogan serving on a multinational YWAM church planting team in Erdenet.

His birth ushered in a horiffic time of spiritual attack against the YWAM team and the fledgling Mongolian church. For the next two months they were battered on a daily basis by the enemy. Finally, beginning on Christmas Eve, 1994, the attack culminated in two deaths, a young Mongolian believer and Jedidiah.

Jedidiah was just under two months when he died of SIDS. It was these deaths that ended up being the motivation for the church to fight back and have victory over the kingdom of darkness. The story is told in full in "There’s a Sheep in my Bathtub" by Brian Hogan.

YWAM MemorialsA digital place to honor, remember and give thanks to God for those who have died in the service of God through YWAM.

YWAM-Memorial.org has been a digital place to honor, remember and give thanks to God for those who have died in the service of God through YWAM. In the last month, in discussions with Donna Jordan Co-Founder YWAM Associates International and Patricia Talbott leader in YWAM Associates International, we sensed that it was right to blend these two websites together. For Peter Jordan, also Co-Founder of YWAM Associates is now with the cloud of witnesses, this was very much in his heart and so also in honor of Peter these two websites are now blended. Please visit this new Memorial site to see the current Memorials listed or to create a Memorial of a YWAM loved one.
