The summer of 2002, I was a JV intern with Dan and Laura Hash in Poland. It was a very transformational summer for me, and I learned so much about ministry. I spent a lot of time with the Hashes that summer, which included time with their son, Jacob, who was a young boy then.
Now, Jacob is all grown up, and he's about to enter his sophomore year of college. Well, guess whose intern he is this summer? He is Brian's intern. Jacob spent most of his time in a van traveling from country to country visiting Josiah Venture camps shooting footage and doing video editing. (Ironically, I spent a lot of time the summer of 2002 traveling around in a van going from camp to camp.) Jacob is serving on our new Communications Team helping to make videos like this one:

It seems crazy to me Jacob is now Brian's intern! In addition to Jacob, Amy, who is another grown-up JVK (Josiah Venture kid) is also interning with the Cteam. She has kicked off our jv20 blogs, celebrating JV's 20th anniversary. Read her latest here. Both are doing an amazing job conveying the JV story.
We had them both over for dinner last night. Makes me wonder what those three kids in the middle might be doing 15+ years from now!
