Family members say Kelly Anne Broderick, a young woman killed by a wrong-way driver Saturday morning in Colorado had a “supremely strong faith.”
Broderick, 27, was driving with her friend to an airport near Denver’s Santa Fe Drive and Dartmouth Avenue when a vehicle driving in the wrong direction crashed into hers. Police say she died at the scene. Broderick’s mother told 9NEWS her friend, who was driving the car, was injured but has since been released from the hospital.
Broderick was known for loving Jesus and loving others. In 2016, she completed The World Race, an 11-month mission trip that took her to 11 different countries around the world. She and her team brought the Gospel to Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Japan, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
The young missionary wrote a blog detailing what God taught her in those 11 months about dreams, identity, and even death.
“I realized my path is already known by my Creator but very unknown to me. So much of my identity has been caught up in how my future career will define me. I have often thought of how I need to bulldoze my way to get there and be successful, that I pass over the risky ‘road less traveled’ ways to get there and miss out on the joy of the journey,” she wrote.
“It might sound crazy, insane even, to live out of a backpack for a year, have a sleeping bag as a bed, and go on what is sure to be the hardest mental, physical, and spiritual trip of my life, but I have no fear. For almost a year I will be a missionary, I will get to serve and love people well and make an impact in the nations as my job. Talk about a dream,” Broderick continued.
