Josh would have been 30 years old this March, but he had something better waiting. He was transitioning to his new role as a full-time missionary this year, but God had bigger plans. He thought that he was at the beginning of a career serving the Lord full-time, only to find out that his faithful walk meant he was at the end.

You see, Josh accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at the age of 4, and from that day on he made it his personal mission to point people toward Christ by his life and words. One tough Marine friend laughingly remembers how in the middle of a ping-pong game, Josh had him kneeling on the concrete floor of a garage praying to accept Christ. Josh knew that accepting or rejecting Christ has eternal consequences, and so he lived and loved so that others might know Christ. He shared his faith fearlessly with family, friends, co-workers and even casual acquaintances.

Josh was far from perfect, but he was faithful to his Lord, and we are all better for having known him. Josh didn’t leave us too young; he left us when he was done.
