Romans 10:15 – And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
So my girlfriend, Mimi, has 4 kids: two boys, who are the ages of my kids, and two girls, who are grown and on their own. One of her daughters is currently doing a year-long mission journey with The World Race.
The World Race is an amazing organization. They are the epitome of short term mission trips. They go to 11 different countries in 11 months. At each place, they do both service and evangelism. From street evangelism in a European country to feeding the impoverished in the far east, the world racers do it all, and in a very short time with a team that came together specifically for this race. No one knows each other, all their loved ones and possessions and far away from them. They have very little except the hope that they will make it to the next country.
Mimi’s daughter, Amber, is a world racer.
She left a few months ago and is a good way through the trip. Overall, the mission trip cost a little over $16,000.
All of the money the world racers are required to earn on their own, whether through fundraising or selling items, they need to raise the money. A basic threshold is required to start the journey, but continual money is required to stay on the mission.
As of now, Amber has a little less than $10,500 in her account and needs to raise about $500 in order to make the next leg of the journey. Overall, she needs about $5,700 to complete the trip.
Here is my plea.
Please consider making a donation to Amber’s World Race account. She needs to raise the $500 by the end of September in order to go to the next country. The link for donating is here.
As Christians, many of us may never have the opportunity to go on a world mission trip. But Amber has decided to forsake the world and give everything over to Christ.
