I never expected to do what we did this weekend. I learned how hard and how dedicated you must be to serve as a missionary is how college junior Brandon Innis of Homestead, Florida, described The Amazing Race: Mission EditionTake 2 held October 18-20 at Lake Placid Camp & Conference Center, Lake Placid, Florida.
The Amazing Race: Mission Edition-Take 2 was the second time the three Florida District Nazarene Missions International (NMI) organizations collaborated in sponsoring the event with Dr. Kathy Mowry, intercultural/religion professor, and five of her students from Trevecca Nazarene University.
The 76 students and youth/mission leaders who attended the event were divided into four tribes. The Trevecca student leaders then created four different tracks that led the teams to a simulated overseas evangelical assignment in the Land of Sheerala. The adult leaders served as village inhabitants, including an orphanage, chief, sheriff, and witch doctor. The four teams were given a variety of preparatory training skills in theology, medicine, and survival before being sent overseas (Lake Placid).
Dr. Mowry spoke four times to the group, illuminating Luke 4 as an example to follow in living and reaching others for Christ. She also met separately with adult leaders providing background and information on teaching and working with the iGeneration (middle and high school students).
The event closed with a very special Sunday anointing by Dr. Mowry of those students who desired to commission themselves to a life of service to God. Fourteen students chose to be anointed.
Brandon Innis concluded, I learned not to be so task-oriented when it comes to Gods service. You have to build on personal relationships and put God and others first.
but it is necessary to be very attentive what to rumple who it and whether there can be this person a swindler. after all and such happens. you don’t need which counterfeit production too much. simply it costs strongly cheaper.
