David has been serving with Josiah Venture in Latvia since 2011. He first learned of JV in 2004 when he served as a summer intern in the Czech Republic. He returned in 2009 to serve six months in Croatia, and spent three weeks in Latvia in the summer of 2010. During his time in Latvia, he was drawn to the people and ministry there. Katka, like many other young people in Czech, first came in contact with Josiah Venture through English camps. A one-week camp in the summer of 1995 was life-changing; Katka accepted Christ as her Savior and began her journey as His disciple. In the spring of 2004, she joined Josiah Venture as full-time staff. In the summer of 2015, Katka moved from Czech to Latvia and joined the Josiah Venture team there. As they served together, David and Katka fell in love and in November 2017 they were married. David is responsible for the Latvian summer camp ministry and Katka oversees the summer interns. They also serve together in a local youth ministry in Riga.
