Committing a year to serving people in 11 countries and Syrian refugees in Greece

Imagine going on a mission trip for one month to a place like Thailand to work with young women rescued from sex trade, or to Honduras to work with children in an orphanage.  Now imagine doing that in 11 countries back-to-back for 11 months.  Today we’re hosting Jade Zaharoff, a young woman who felt called to do just that in 2014 as part of something called the World Race.  According to their Website, the World Race is a journey to serve “the least of these” while embedded in real and raw community.  It’s a unique mission trip that challenges young adults to abandon worldly possessions and a traditional lifestyle in exchange for an understanding that it's not about them; it's about the Kingdom.  Jade joins us to talk about her World Race experiences as well as work she did with Syrian refugees in 2016 after they landed on the shores of Greece. 

A call to get out of your comfort zone, consider the World Race, and support Syrian refugees.

Learning about God's love for us through two eight-year-old boys in separate parts of the world.

Lessons learned by stepping out of your comfort zone and realizing people's openness to the gospel.
