Nineteen year old Justice Kellenberger of Davenport loves to "throw down some tricks" as they say in the trade. Justice is extremely talented on a skateboard, and is very active with Skate Church at The Center in Davenport.

Justice is sharing his God given talent in a very unique way. Earlier this year, he, his mother Pennie, and a group from Fishers of Men Ministries traveled to an orphanage in Kenya. There, Justice spent alot of time teaching skateboarding to the orphans.

He calls skateboarding a ministry on wheels. He used skateboarding as a means to connect with the children, telling them that God has also given each of them a talent. He wanted them to understand that God knows who thery are and that they are loved.

Some of the people on the trip made skateboard ramps for the children. A doctor and a dentist were among other people on the mission trip to Kenya. They provided medical assistance for kids at the orphanage.

Justice was so moved by his experience that he plans to return to Kenya in August. Pennie Kellenberger says her son has a huge pasion for skateboarding and for children, and he is able to use that passion to make the world a little bit brighter.
