Hey! My name is Jeremy! I am married to my high school sweetheart - her name is Kat, and she's the best human I know. We did the World Race together as a married couple in 2011. As we continue to say "yes" to God, He continues to blow our minds with the places we're going spiritually, relationally, emotionally and geographically!

My name is Hailey and I am from Littleton, CO. I am one of the rare Coloradans that couldnȦĨœt wait to escape. Snow and I are not friends - give me warm weather any day. I went on the 11n11 World Race in January 2011 and have been with Adventures ever since. The Race changed my life and ignited a huge love for all things Asia. My favorite country is Japan, and if you talk with me for more than 5 minutes you will hear me reference when I lived there (usually prompted by people seeing my massive cartoon phone case). I make up songs on the spot for no reason, laugh incredibly loud and love finding markets when I travel!

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!

Hi, I'm Katie! I am married to a great man, Robbie, and we have a little girl named Noa. I am the Ministry Programs Executive Assistant, which means that I help leadership at AIM reach key objectives with excellence so that our programs are constantly improving. My husband and I said Yes to the Lord in an adventure of a lifetime by going on the World Race in July 2015. During our trip we started to grasp what it truly meant to say Yes to the Lord in every situation, both big and small. We moved to Gainesville, GA in July 2016 after returning from the World Race in May. I have a heart for teaching others how to steward the Lords money well, as well as discipleship of women as they seek to know the Lord further through their own stories. I love getting to watch people walk into freedom in the Lord and am truly blessed to get to be apart of that in any way. I also really love traveling, coffee and flowers, just sayin'. :)
