World Race 2015

Hi everyone,

 Thank you for clicking on my gofundme link.

My planned mission trip starting in January 2016 is with a Christian organization called World Race (www.worldrace.org ).   “World Racers” are young people who are dissatisfied with the status quo and are actively rising to the challenge of seeing the world transformed through tangible expressions of God's love. World Racers are seeing lives changed in nations all over the world.  For my mission, I will be part of a multicultural team of about 15 people from the United States, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Our team will be traveling and working in 11 countries over 11 months: Philippines, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Montenegro, Romania, Ukraine, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, and Bulgaria(where I was born)!

 I am looking forward to the opportunity of not only visiting these 11 countries, but also working with “World Racers” of different nationalities and backgrounds.

 From what I’ve learned, every day on the World Race can be different. Some days will be busy constructing schools, teaching vacation bible school, working with orphans, or praying for the sick at a hospital. Some days could be slower — shopping for groceries at the market, cooking for the team, and spending time praying for the community where we will be working. Regardless of the pace or the activity, every day will be focused on being a part of God's work in the 11 different countries and seeing how He touches the lives of the poor and the marginalized all around the world.

 The cost of the 11-month mission program is $16,000.  If you would be willing to support my mission trip, I would be very, very grateful.  I plan on starting a blog of my 11 month program (including the training camp) and will be certainly keeping you up to date on my “World Race.”

 Thank you very much for your interest and support.

 Kind regards,

 Liz Stephens
