Using Mike’s seed money, MKT was able to generate interest from a group of Norwegians who wanted to join our idea of a TeenSt-type event in Mike’s home town. As the weeks went on, the founders of TeenSt who are International Illusionists, joined our growing team. Then, amazingly, through a close friend, Hollywood actor Stephen Baldwin joined us for a 3-day skateboarding event the culminated in the Saturday night live show Mysterious….

Although an unknown boy in a small town, Mike’s story seemed to inspire other young people who came to understand that life isn’t as strong and as secure to it seems. Like King Solomon of Israel once said: “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth… Remember Him before the silver cord is severed and the golden bowl is broken, the pitcher by the well is shattered and the wheel at the cistern is crushed; then the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it…” [Eccl.12:1,6-7]
