Angelica on The World Race
Start: Oct 7, 2019 - End: May 31, 2020
My name is Angelica Spence and I am fundraising for my missions trip on The World Race, launching in January of 2020! If you aren’t familiar, The World Race is an 11 month- 11 country missions trip. My specific route includes spending one month in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, India, Nepal, Swaziland, Lesotho, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe! Our missions will look different every single day. We will be doing everything from teaching English to children, preaching, helping to plant and expand churches, sharing the gospel in unreached places, working to rescue victims of sex- trafficking, and whatever else the Lord may lead us into!
My overall goal is $19,200 and I am just over half way there! I am hopeful that you will pray towards partnering me through your purchases here on One Mission. Not only am I benefiting towards my trip, but you receive incredible products that are also helping to aid other missions organizations that One Mission is teamed up with too! The love and gain is literally full circle!
After living most of my twenties in a very self- satisfying mindset, the Lord has pursued and redeemed my heart and called me into a year of self- sacrifice to serve Him. I’m leaving behind every bit of comfort I know to go out and love others, the same way that Jesus has loved me.
People always ask why I am doing this. I wasn’t the child that grew up dreaming of being a missionary. I never had the desire as an adult either. The only way I can describe it is that my heart no longer belongs to me; spiritually, emotionally, or physically. The Holy Spirit has made home in this vessel I know as my body, and placed a calling over my life; bigger than I am even sure of what do with sometimes. But I am saying ‘yes’ to it. God never asked me to be perfect, nor ready, but He asks me to be willing. And He asks the same of you. The rest is all in His hands! “By the grace of God, I am what I am, and His grace to me
was not without effect.” (1 Corinthians 15:10)
Jesus’ grace has changed my life in every sense of the matter, and I pray to live each and every day of my life loving and living the same way that He did. My one mission is to look more like Jesus looked on this earth to those He touched. I pray my endless source of joy and light that is found in Christ will spill over into the world in all that I do!
It’s my prayer and hope that you will join in partnering with me in purchases from One Mission to help support my journey on The World Race! This story is so beyond bigger than me, and truly wouldn’t be taking place without YOU! Come be a part of the masterpiece story God is writing!
