What World Racers are Saying

One cannot do the World Race and come back unchanged. Christina Simke, F Squad 2012

This was the hardest but best year of my life. Kristina Kalmikov D Squad 2016

The Lord showed me what it’s like to have my heart break for others who are hurting and how I can love them. My confidence in the Lord has also grown a lot. My identity has been rooted in Christ for a while, but I still let fear have a hold on my life. The Lord helped me to overcome fears, like preaching, evangelizing, and saying hard things in love to teammates. It’s awesome to see how much God worked in me and transformed me this year! Brittany Stoll, D Squad 2016

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 Celeste Lombardo, K Squad, 2012

Deciding to go into the middle of the market to worship and talk to Hindu’s about Jesus came with a lot of risk, but we were covered in Christ’s peace. We went. We worshipped. We prayed. We laid hands on Hindu’s and Muslim’s. We led teenagers to accept Christ into their hearts. And this beautiful man here received healing in his legs. He regained strength in his body, stood up and walked as if he was sixteen again. His smile filled his face and he was overwhelmed with joy. Raquel Cooke, U Squad, 2015

The things God did in me and through me as I traveled the world were beyond anything I ever could have asked for or imagined, and my life is drastically and amazingly different because of it. Stephanie May Wilson, A Squad 2011

Absolutely life changing! My eyes were opened to see God's love for his people. The World Race will stretch your faith and put you under amazing leadership to mentor you along the way. Brooks Driver, Z Squad, 2015
Image
That night, we saw the deaf hear, the blind see, and many people with back pains, headaches, stomach pains, and all sorts of afflictions healed right in front of us! That sort of thing became regular, or as regular as miracles can become. Eric Hanson, A Squad, 2007
Image
I was challenged and stretched in my faith while on the World Race in a way that has produced lasting change. It has opened my mind to what a life of discipleship looks like. God could have done this work in any number of ways but, for me at least, he used AIM and the World Race. Drew Dahlsten, X Squad, 2015
Image
I can sum up my World Race experience in one word: Kingdom. Because in that word is the depth of true community, God's heart for the orphaned, widowed and sex-trafficked, a hope-filled way to engage the world and the fullness of God which is the love of Jesus. And I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is nothing else I want to give my life to. Nate Evans, E Squad, 2008
Image
For those who may see The World Race as just another missions trip, I would have to disagree. It's a classroom where the gifts God gives people and the realities of how those gifts were intended to shape and shake the world come together, completely changing a life, spanning the globe through relationship after relationship. Brian Alonzo, F Squad, 2009

I wasn’t created to sit behind a desk, I was created to lead people, I was created to bring life to people. World Race Alumni: Josh Woodmansee

The World Race changed my life, it has singlehandedly been the most impactful thing I've ever done. I witnessed God do incredible things around the world, and grew so much in my identity in Christ. I highly recommend the race to anyone wanting to grow, and experience missions! Jordan Field, D Squad January 2016

It will change your life. The community you experience is second to none. Andy Sengsavang, Gap Year A Squad, 2014
Image
The World Race Gap Year was the most challenging and life-changing endeavor that I have ever experienced. I built life-long relationships with people all over the world and encountered God in ways that I never thought possible. I learned what it truly means to dream big with the Lord every day. It was by far the most meaningful 9 months of my entire life. Whitney Rogers, Gap Year E Squad, 2015
Image
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. Derek Begin, P Squad, 2010
