Amazing story!! 🙂 Praise God..
Where do racers come from?
They look like Jackie Gu or Brian Cooke. Jackie was a successful marketing manager with an international energy company in San Francisco. Two months ago, just after leaving her job, she read Brian Cooke's blog post and signed up for the World Race. She's on the squad that Karen and I will be coaching.
Brian was a hostel manager in Malawi when the P squad came to stay. Here's what he wrote:
Racers come from the strangest places. Do you know anyone who should consider being a racer? They could have a story like Jackie or Brian.
Amazing story!! 🙂 Praise God..
PRAISE THE LORD! Encouraging and challenging to hear how it was how the P-squad was living their lives that primarily struck Brian. “They will know us by our love.” John 13:35
I’m Brian’s team leader, we are currently in Tanzania (Malawi next month). We just read your blog in our Pastor’s house. Brian is so blown away right now that you have honored him in this way. We are all smiles as we just read Jacki’s blog about her saying Yes to the call and saying Yes to the World Race!
I am MORE than honored!! I am constantly blown away of how amazing the Lord is and what He does to intertwine a network of miracles He calls His sons and daughters to glorify Him!!! I can’t believe it!!! Well I CAN!! Because He’s GOD and that what He does!!! I never thought when Noe said people we didn’t know were reading our blogs and they would lead people to go on the race that they would be MY blogs!!! Honored, simply honored!!! Thank you Seth, I have found my first World Racer to follow and pray for when I finish.
Love, your brother in Christ,
Brian Cooke 🙂
Jeremy and Brian – thanks for living such an amazing story and for activating Jackie. She’s a winner on our L squad!
Thank you guys for posting this – I’m reading this in San Francisco with my mom right now- the world is connected by blogs and we will all intercede for each other around the globe. Brian – you inspired me to go on the race and I’ve been sharing your blog story at my fundraising bbq’s, keep up the good fight! will lift your team in prayer!
Seth and Karen – please pray for me, i broke my ankle during last day of training camp but believing in complete healing for the RACE LAUNCH!!! 🙂
Jackie – broke your ankle?!
That’s terrible. Well, we’re definitely praying for healing.
I covet your prayers Seth. So far the miracles are coming:
1) While a group of friends were praying for me outside a restaurant, a homeless man came over to see what’s going on, asked for prayer and accepted Christ.
2) I was supposed to have surgery yesterday but at the last minute the doctor called and said surgery was no longer needed as they are taking the “conservative treatment approach” to let it heal via cast and naturally.
I’ll keep you posted of my healing progress. Blessings.
Just in case you didn’t know, Brian’s team is currently finishing up their Race at the same ministry in Malawi where he met the Lord through P-squad. God totally brought His story full-circle!!!
Wow – that is so cool!

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.
