Elisha McFarland

Elisha McFarland is a seventeen-year-old writer, blogger, editor, basketball player, and most importantly- adopted son of God. When he isn’t writing, you can often find him reading his Bible, drinking way too much coffee, working on his soon-to-be-published books, and hanging out with friends.

Elisha is the son of long-time missionary couple Keith and Laura McFarland, who moved to the mission field to serve in Uganda in 2004, when Elisha was about nine months old. The McFarlands spent 16 years in Uganda and had three children there. Now, they have moved back to the USA for a furlough before they spend what will likely be their last term in Uganda.

Elisha is finishing his junior year as a homeschooler at the Veritas Scholars Academy. In a few months, he will begin his senior year at Cross Lanes Christian School, a Christian private school located in West Virginia. He hopes to play basketball and receive his diploma there, before moving in to Biblical or pastoral studies at Wheaton College or Moody Bible Institute.

If you wish to contact Elisha, please click on the Contact page above. His working hours are between 11:00 AM Eastern Time to 5:00 PM Eastern Time. You can contact him at any point, but please allow a 12-hour period for a response.

Elisha is also on a journey to reach 1,000 followers, so if you’d like to help him out and recommend this blog to somebody you know, that would be fantastic. 

A few obscure facts about him: He is a double jointed, six-foot Son of Jesus that likes the Bears and Steelers. He is really into watching sports, so if you ever get the chance to hang out with him, you will likely be bombarded with questions about opinions on the NFL and NBA.

Anyway, thanks for wanting to learn more about him! Now, all that remains is for you to click that Blog button and make sure you have read his newest post (check it out, it’s fire). Thanks!

      1. Well, I was first drawn to them a couple of years ago when I didn’t even care about football for some random reason. And now I just love them, (1) because Tom Brady is just amazing and (2) because I think they need more support when tons of people hate them, ya know? I think I have a thing for liking teams that everyone hates. I also love the Golden State Warriors in the NBA, so yeah. XD

        Not judging, but NOOOO. I could never be a Pats fan… simply cuz their team and owner is mainly criminals. Cant wait to see what happens to the fan base when Brady retires (like come on man, hurry up) I know half their fans (not saying you) are bandwagons boo Tom Shady, boo Deflatriots. GO COWBOYS!

  1. Well, I guess my siblings have far than “managed” to drive me crazy. They absolutely just, completely, nailed the whole thing. Oooh, brownies! That’s my favorite dessert! We used to have chickens, but the story is much to sad to tell. (No, we didn’t eat them) What is jackfruit? Is it a melon, a berry, or a fruit?
    Also, one more question: What’s the longest car ride you’ve ever been on?

  2. Hi Elisha! I’m so glad I found your blog. I love reading about missionaries around the world, and it’s wonderful how God has touched your family to go spread the Word in Uganda.

    Also, we share the same name! I’ve never heard of anyone with my name before you, so I think it’s super cool. How do you pronounce it?

    1. Ok, not going to lie- I was a touch freaked out when I saw your name. I thought one of my friends was trying to play a prank on me.
      I pronounce mine ee-lie-shah. You?
      Also, I’m so glad you love the blog!!!! I’ve put a ton of work into it so it’s always nice to see people appreciate my work,

      1. Lol, if it happened to me, I would think the same. xD

        Cool! I’m pretty sure yours is the ‘correct’ Biblical pronunciation. I pronounce mine ee-LEE-shuh, that way it sounds more like a girl’s name.

        My pleasure! ๐Ÿ˜‰
