When I met Ventura, he was covered in sweat. I asked him why and he told me he'd walked the 2.5 miles from his dormitory at Michigan State University. He walked to church in summer. "Oh...well can I give you ride home?"

We started sending a van to Michigan State University to pick him up for church. Pretty soon, we were picking up Ventura and his friends. He has invited scholars from three continents into bible studies, prayer meetings and fellowship events. They've heard him share his testimony, pray and read scripture.
