It's been 12 years since KIVU opened in 2001. We've seen nearly 10,000 teenagers come through the facility in Colorado. We've done everything from organized sports, to outdoor X-Games type sports, to individual sports, all coupled with Worldview Teaching. We've hired University Students from around the world, but last night it all came to fruition.
Here at our 4th Two Week session, I looked at the enrollment and saw kids from so many places. We've got kids from Texas to Tennessee. New York to New Mexico. Florida to California. And now...We've got kids from China, Australia, The UK, Canada, Jordan, and Costa Rica.
When I looked out into the audience last night, I found a picture unlike most places I've ever taught. The beauty of seeing all these teenagers who've come to connect together, all having a gift they can share to make the fullness of life more abundant. They come from all different backgrounds, all different cultures, all different interests, and we have a unique opportunity to introduce them to the most fun adventures in Colorado.
I'm more excited about this as we see the beauty of what the world should look like. I wish you could see the friendships being made, the fun teenagers are having, and I wish you could hear the laughter filling the Valley. (I hope you can sense the excitment I have for this day!!)
What a unique opportunity!! I'm thankful today for the chance to make a differnce in the world here at KIVU
