If you do not know yet, I am spending another summer in Slovenia in the next couple of months! I have been so pumped and excited for this and it blows my mind that I will get the chance to spend moments with those who I have so much love in my heart for.
As I am looking forward to this summer, it has given me the opportunity to look back at my previous summer in Slovenia and cherish all of those memories that I have.
If you watched the video, and I hope you did, it talks about King Josiah.
“Before him there was no king like him, who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his might, according to all the Law of Moses, nor did any like him arise after him.”2 Kings 23:25, ESV
Reading up on King Josiah and seeing what all he did for Judah is almost stunning, he started reigning as king at the age of eight for thirty-one years. Josiah then initiates the repairs of the Temple in which the Book of the Law is recovered. As a result, Josiah reforms the Kingdom of Judah, casts out cult worshipers, and even restores the Passover.
Fascinating, right? That is why this ministry excites me, puts me on fire. It is a revival in the youth of Eastern Europe to build relationships and seek hearts. It reminds me of some pretty incredible moments I got to experience the last time I was there:
These come from some of my favorite moments of the summer, from going to a museum with students I barely knew, passing out informational flyers, going to camp, hiking, having a spontaneous “just guys being dudes” retreat, to giving a concert as a camp in the middle of a park. All of these moments were integral in my relationship building and sparked joy among all of us.
“This is all really cool stuff Mitchell, but what is with the support caption?”
Yeah, about that. What causes these moments, this journey, to happen is YOU. I am in need of support. Financial support, prayer support, communal support. I want to invite you on this journey with me and be a part of Josiah Venture and their mission in Eastern Europe. If you look at the top of the page, there is a page called “Josiah Venture Support” that is my official letter of support. If you want me to send you a letter, please let me know. But as of right now I am in need of more support in order for this summer to happen.
If you can give financially there will be a link at the bottom of this page in order for you to do so. If that is not possible for you, don’t worry about it! I still want you to partner with me in prayer and support, please contact me that you are praying for me and the summer. I cannot do any of this without YOU.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!Psalms 96:3, ESV
I am very excited for what this summer will hold, and I cannot wait to go on this journey with all of you.
please be in prayer.
If you do give, be sure to put it in my name. Also, your donation is tax deductible!
