Amazing Race

As a family we have been watching Amazing Race for the last few months as we borrowed the DVD’s of various seasons from another family who is serving here.  Joshua wants to enter in the race when he’s old enough because he knows how to read a map and take a taxi. These two skills seem to cause the most problems with competing teams, not to mention communication problems between team members. He also thinks speaking French will give us an added advantage. We have been able to discuss with them time and time again how important it is to be kind to one another and how ugly it looks when brothers argue with one another.

Today I read about another race, and even a fellow blogger who is willing to sponsor a team if her blog post motivates you to join. CHECK IT OUT!  Her blog post also has a video from Wycliffe Canada’s adventure race last year thatraised funds to support 9 languages in Cameroon in the Ndop cluster.

RACE to 2025 – Join an adventure race with Eternal Impact

Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls! (Hebrews 12:1-3 MSG)

    I think I’m too old to join a team for the Canada adventure, but I’m glad to be a part of the team that continues to run the race. We pray that by 2025 every person will have the amazing and awesome word of God in their own tongue – and that they might discover the living Word in Jesus.
