                       WELCOMING DR. JACK TRIEBER

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Without objection, the gentleman from 
California (Mr. Khanna) is recognized for 1 minute.
  There was no objection.
  Mr. KHANNA. Mr. Speaker, it is an honor to introduce my friend and 
constituent, Dr. Jack Trieber, pastor of North Valley Baptist Church in 
Santa Clara, California in my district. I thank him for his words of 
wisdom and comfort, and for joining us to deliver the opening prayer in 
the House today.
  Pastor Trieber has been a source of strength and guidance for my 
constituents for more than four decades. He is a personal friend and 
counselor and source of strength to me. He and his wife, Cindie, have 
been friends since I entered public service, and I appreciate that 
Pastor Trieber accompanied me to last year's annual National Prayer 
Breakfast to join leaders from across the country in discussing the 
importance of faith to the strength of our Nation.
  Under the pastor's leadership, North Valley Baptist Church has grown 
from an assembly of 22 people in 1976, the year I was born, to a 
current average of 3,000 in attendance each Sunday. He is a true 
  He believes in this country, and it is a real honor to have had him 
open our House with his prayers.
