The wildest ministry I’ve ever done

God has called me to some pretty crazy things in my life, but this one may take the cake. 2006 marks the beginning of one of the freshest, most innovative concepts in missions. AIM is introducing a ministry we’re calling “The World Race.” I fly down to Mexico in a week to kick it off.
 
25 people will form five teams that will go around the world in a year – 11 countries in 11 months – spending a month ministering in each country.
 
The purpose of the trip is to mobilize a generation to follow Jesus. 

Teams will impact many lives along the way as they build orphanages, minister to refugees, and pray for the hurting. With a total per person budget of just $650/month (includes living costs and travel), the teams will be asked to live by faith. To go from country to country on such a limited amount of money will be hard enough, but will be made more difficult as teams race against one another to the next place.

The ministry has captured the imagination of hundreds. A documentary crew will record their start in Matamoros, Mexico. Team members come from a select group, most of whom are in their twenties. They have left their jobs, sold their homes and cars, and are prepared to follow Jesus’ command to literally go into all the world. To follow their daily progress, go to http://www.theworldrace.org.
 
Each team member writes a blog – check ’em out!

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.
