You know, I spent a year in Afghanistan with the military and God used that year to transform my heart, my thoughts, everything about who I thought I was…and I wished that everyone could go off and have the kind of “wilderness” experience that I did. To realize that you are not the person you were when you entered…that person died.
And it just makes me so happy to see opportunities like this for the non-military sort. I know some people probably thought you were crazy at first, Seth, but the World Race is what our generation needs. They need to understand and experience how the rest of the world lives. They need to know the dire situation that the world is in, because everything we’re taught says that happiness comes with a price tag and rhinestones. We’re being lulled to sleep by our culture and its values, and I’m glad there’s a way for people to wake up. Thanks for what you do and your courage to try God’s craziest plans.
