Founder Steve L. Kasha shares a little of his life changing story that prompted him to start SERV:
“I was in the middle of the jungle, eight hours up the Orinoco river and a day and a half away from any major population when I tripped and fell face-to-face with one of the deadliest snakes in Venezuela, the Brown Four-Nose. As the snake rears and prepares to strike me, I see my entire life flash before me and think, "Well this is it!" Just before the moment of certain death, an elderly tribesman clubbed the snake with a piece of sugarcane and saved my life. Through this traumatic event God claimed me as his own, and I realized at that moment that my life was not my own, but my choices were. I felt God impressing on me that if I would trust Him and seek His face, he would provide for all my needs."
