He gotinvolved in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IV), which providedtremendous foundations to his subsequent spiritual journey (now25 years long!). Nine months later, he met Rose at an IV camp,sparking another type of journey! This winter provided two greatopportunities for David to reminisce about his past.One University of Oregon IV staff worker invited David to presentabout SEED and about vocation at the Winter Conference, andanother asked David to come speak to the Global Friends groupabout Matthew 25, the parable of the talents, and caring for thoseclose around us and far away.Being in worship and then dialoguing with groups of collegestudents was a great joy. Their energy and hope for the futureare infectious.
