With 32.5 million young people in Central and Eastern Europe, and less then 1% of them having a personal relationship with Christ, mostly first generational Christians, Jany (John), Rob and I were able to share the need of asking university students, churches and friends to partner with our organization, Josiah Venture, to reach the other 99% last month.
Being in the states was a fun-filled, whirlwind, yet blessed time to share what God is doing in Central and Eastern Europe.
Jany and I visited 13 states, traveled 16,167 miles (planes, trains and automobiles), slept in 33 different places (21 beds, 5 couch beds, 5 air mattresses, 1 car and 1 plane), visited 13 churches, 7 universities, and met around 1300 students, and over 230 supporters/potential supporters.
It was a very fruitful experience. We had a few new churches partner with us, as well as a few college students apply, and we raised some funds along the way for both of us and our ministry here in Slovakia. We are very thankful to God for how He and our friends took care of us.
