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!
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.
The Lord showed me what it’s like to have my heartbreak 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!
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.
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 Adventures In Missions and the World Race.
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.
