[00:00:03] Welcome to Goat Wrestling Perseverance podcast with your host, Dave Swanson. He's wrestled with goats, climbed mountains and bicycled across America. He wants to help you with your dreams and goals with one perseverance story at a time.

 

Dave Swanson: [00:00:26] Welcome to Goat Wrestling Perseveres podcast today I have a guest that is the owner of Reached Thirty Six. He's the founder. It ignites and he's the V.P. of marketing it at Fusion Tech. Not only that, you would be surprised. He's also an ordained reverend. And today, I have Jason Bonham on the show. Jason, thanks for being here today.

 

Jason Vana: [00:00:47] It's really I'm really excited to be here with you.

 

Dave Swanson: [00:00:50] All right. As the audience knows for this podcast, we jump right into the story. And it sounds like something that for this audience we always hear about when people go to troubled times. But it's about something where you're going to take it and keep moving forward and see those opportunities. So I'm excited to hear this story.

 

Jason Vana: [00:01:09] Yeah, so basically the story is this I in 2006, I had my first opportunity to go on a trip to Europe where I was going with a group of people who were looking at partnering into a church planting project over in the Czech Republic. And so it was kind of an exploratory trip. We were just seeing like what this would entail, what it would be like meeting some of the pastors that we would work with. And honestly, for the first trip, I was. It was awesome. I loved it. Like I hated the flying part was petrified of flying. But I was like, man, I'm going to do this because this is a great opportunity. And really, I went into it like this is going to be my one and only trip. Not going to do it again. Like this is just a once in a lifetime opportunity. And when we came back, we decided we were going to be part of this this church planning project. So in 2007, I went back and again I was like, OK, last trip, this probably isn't gonna go beyond. This was part of a leadership conference helping to train pastors to be church planters and helping to find these people who would be church planners to start these new churches. And it was during that trip that I met a youth pastor who was like, hey, you should come and lead a trip to work with my youth. And I was like, sure, why not? Another excuse to go back to Europe. I'll take it. And basically, since then, since 2006, I've gone back to the Czech Republic at l
