Gas cost $1.29, three biggest films were LOTR – Two Towers, Star Wars Episode II, and Spider-Man, U2 performed during the Super Bowl halftime show, Kelly Clarkson won American Idol, Apple released it’s 2nd gen iPod holding 20gb of storage space, Sanyo was the first cell phone to have a built-in camera, and I started with Josiah Venture in Presov, Slovakia.

From that time, it’s been an incredible journey with the Lord, and you as my partners with Josiah Venture. I thank God for calling me into full-time ministry and for the role each one of you have played over the years. I’ve seen…God move in many ways, several generations of youth leaders take ownership of their local ministry, and many of you being inspired by your faithfulness in praying, giving and for some serving.

To celebrate, I’d like to invite you to give an hour to pray for our ministry and praise God for all He has done, and continues to do with our ministry and your partnership.
