As a total newbie to travel, I will be departing in July 2015 for an 11 MONTH mission trip to 11 countries: India, Nepal, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Botswana, Swaziland, South Africa, Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Jamaica. I will be spending an entire month in each of these countries with a small team of fellow servants, fulfilling needs these countries have.
Will you please support me in this? Your donation will not only create an unimaginably great impact in my own life, but will also impact the 11 countries that I will be going to. A magnificent win-win!
I’ve always dreamed of traveling and seeing the world. And the best part of this adventure, is my opportunity to grow and SERVE in 11 COUNTRIES!
I first heard about World Race back in highschool, when a friend mentioned it. (thanks Sarah!) I knew that this mission trip was for me. I feel deeply that God has designed me for this trip. Several weeks ago, I was hit with a realization that now is the time for me to go.
I have spent my whole life focused on me:
Focused on growing, building a relationship with my Creator Savior, getting to know myself and my design. Dreaming and creating and healing. This self-focus has been especially intense over the last few years. But I feel like this is the time and place for me to start taking what I have learned and become, and share it with others. To take what I have internalized and use it to give and share with others. What an awesome blessing that I will get to do this while getting steeped in foreign cultures; making friends around the world!
Many thanks and blessings,
