I just sent the following to 30,000 people with Mark Lindberg’s help and many of Ashley Musick’s words. I loved Ashley’s symbolic act at the end of her year of ministry.

Dear fellow adventurer,

Today, the team of 14 World Racers returned from an incredible,
adventure-filled year of ministering around the world. Ashley Musick sums it up
in this letter:

I’ve traveled the entire world – so many tears, so many laughs, and so
many prayers together! What an amazing year.

This was the trip of a lifetime. These phrases from the past year will
forever echo in my mind;

“Who does this?”

A life like no other!” “
We must be
crazy!

Who can forget the praying orphans
of India
, the monks high in the hills
of Tibet
, the war-torn
children of Bosnia
, or the poorest of poor in the slums
of Nairobi
? I’m thankful for the way God has used all the World Racers this
year to impact people for His glory.

In one of our debrief lessons, we talked about being initiated into a
radical life for Jesus. So at our last destination, South Africa, I decided to
cement the lesson by bungee jumping off the third highest bridge in the world. I
placed my toes over the edge and I fell without fear.

This year we cliff-jumped, literally and figuratively. We left family,
friends, careers, our homes, and we jumped off.

Along the way, we’ve wrestled together with questions like: What is my
purpose in life? How can I make a difference in this life? Over and over, God
has helped me answer these questions.

I will never be the same. I never want to be the same.

Ashley’s amazing year could be yours as well! We’re looking for people like
you to take a year and bungee jump for God. Don’t settle for the ordinary! See
if you qualify for the 2007
World Race
. Take 15 minutes and complete a Quick
App
. We’ll get back to you right away!

Yours for the Kingdom,

Seth Barnes

  • Yeah…that’s quite a jump. I wasn’t nervous about it at all……..now I’m not sure if I could ever do it again!!

    Oh well, it is quite a way to relate to life as well!

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
