Yesterday was a great day. As my team and I were preparing to leave for Austria, I received an email from another team mate of mine that I could not ignore. Here is why. . . Josiah Venture's 1000th summer camp will be commence this Saturday on July 12th, 2014. This is huge! The first JV camp ever was launched 20 years ago. During that camp, 80 Czech people were numbered in attendance. Since then, close to 60,000 young people have attended these week-long events, and thousands have put their faith in Christ. Praise God!
As a part of celebrating this monumental time, we wanted to make a short video that draws attention to the great things that God has done. As we drove 6 hours to Austria, I pieced together this video. The images and interview have been compiled from some of the things that we have seen over the last week and a half of traveling and visiting camps. This is only a small taste of what is happening over here. I am looking forward to the next few weeks of traveling and documenting. Pray that light would continue to pierce through the darkness and that Christ would be put on great display before these nations. In this we have hope, his sovereign plan to save a redeem. "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of His will, according to His purpose, which He set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things to Him, things in heaven and things on earth." Ephesians 1:7-10
