I don't even know where to begin. But all I can say is go. Don't worry about finances, raise money and trust God. This type of education is better than any education I could find in a classroom. God. Travel. And the people you spend it with will become your "forever friends" and family

Adventures in Missions is honestly one of or if at least, the best Christian missions organizations that I have ever worked with or been a part of. God has used you in amazing ways and taught me so much in every area of my life -- emotionally, physically & spiritually! I am forever grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to be apart of Adventures and the World Race and will definitely continue to recommend to any and all.
