Read Bio
I spent the first two decades of my Christian life afraid of disappointing God. I was trying to be a good servant and live a good life so God would be happy with me. During my own journey as a World Racer, God revealed how deeply He loves me, and that His desire is to actually partner with me in this life. This changed everything for me! I've spent the last nine years partnering with God through the World Race, to help others awaken to how much their Father loves them and the great adventure of living and loving like Jesus. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you on your World Race journey.

Hey! I'm Ronny! I went on the World Race in 2014, and my life has honestly never been the same. I met my wife, Casey, here at Adventures, and adventures we have had - the most recent of which is becoming parents to the most adorable son! Whatever comes our way, we're excited to continue walking out the story God has for us!

As you jump into this established ministry and work alongside other missionaries you’ll find yourself playing soccer with local kids or teaching English in a local school.

With coastlines on two oceans, world famous mountain views, and 11 official languages, South Africa is the southernmost country on the continent of Africa. Join our ministry partner, Global Leadership Academy in Jeffrey’s Bay, to reach this country still healing from its dark and painful history of racism and segregation.

From feeding programs to sports ministry, you’ll have many opportunities for youth and children’s ministry. You’ll work in the school system, teaching academic lessons and life skills, tutoring, or sharing the love of Jesus with students. You may even get a chance to share your gifts through music lessons! You can make the most of this beachside town by connecting with tourists and backpackers searching for more.

Location: Siem Reap
Ministry: Adventures in Missions Cambodia Base
Focus: Community Outreach, Family Strengthening

From the modern city of Siem Reap to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, the Kingdom of Cambodia intrigues and inspires. Hitch a ride on a rickety tuk-tuk down dusty village roads and you might see houses built on stilts or crumbling Buddhist temples. Here, family is everything. Even after a devastating genocide wiped out a generation, the Cambodian people are rebuilding with a resilient outlook and a generous heart.

Join our Cambodia base team as they continue their ministry to local street kids and share the hope of the Gospel with families in surrounding villages. You’ll also get to help families create better futures for their children by teaching English and other life skills. Watch God use the strength of the family to rebuild this country as He continues to build your faith.

*BONUS COUNTRY*

On this route, you'll have the opportunity to experience Thailand as well! This nation’s friendly people have earned Thailand its suitable nickname as the Land of Smiles. Here you will have the opportunity to reveal the truth of Jesus to a deeply unreached country, whether you are prayer-walking through the red-light district, ministering to tourists, playing with street kids or teaching English to local Thai people.
