Man… this makes me misty eyed! who knew what we were in for when we rolled up the window to hold the back closed…
We saw a generation awakened to their destiny this morning.
The World Race began at 7:44 a.m. central time, the three vehicles accelerating down the road south to Veracruz, Mexico.
For too long this generation has been coddled, distracted, and under-challenged. The 20 World Racers who left today have abandoned everything to go to the nations, and to do so on $650 living expenses a month. They have the fire of God in their hearts. They are unified in spirit and purpose. They are focused on Jesus and his call to go into all the world and make disciples.
We began the day before dawn with a glorious time of worship. The teams have gone through a week of training, knowing that a year of travel and ministry lies ahead, knowing that they are the first of many groups to go out as World Racers.
When it came time to actually get in the vehicles they bought a few days ago, we noticed the brown team's Suburban's back door wouldn't shut and the blue team minivan's back end was riding low. But once underway, all the onlookers agreed, it was inspiring to see these young warriors full of the Spirit and accelerating into the distance. They all left with the glory of the Lord as their rear guard. We believe that thousands will follow behind them.
