I entered the World Race squad way late, I hardly have a home church, and my extended family is Jewish, so they didn't want to help me out. Fund-raising seemed impractical, nearly impossible. Two weeks before the launch date, the deadline was suddenly upon me to get $6900 cash in my support account! I had been slow, but now it was crunch time. So, with a lot of prayer and trust, I scribbled out a blog entitled "Call for help," detailing where I was at and making it very clear that if somebody didn't start giving soon, I would lose my chance to go on this trip. I only had $1200 collected at this point. Well, that was late on a Thursday night. By Friday at 2:00pm, about 14 hours later, I had broken the $6900 threshold. By the following Monday, I was at $10,000! It was nothing short of miraculous.
