My name is Claudia Haak and I am a senior in high school. A few things that I am super passionate about are child-care, physical fitness, adventure, and most importanty, God. Being a senior in high school, my life is rapidly changing right before my eyes, and i'm just not confident that God is calling me to go off to college right away. So instead, He's telling me that I need to leave my tiny little town and travel around the world to spread His goodness. How crazy is that?! I am going on the World Race Gap Year which is a 9 month missions trip. I leave this August and my first destination is Albania. I will be living there for 3 months, then the Philippines for 3 months, and lastly, South Africa for 3 months. WOW! The World Race is a national known missions trip run by an organization called Adventures in Missions, who are based out of Atlanta, Georgia. The World Race was first started in 2006, and since has grown like crazy. While I am on the race I will be doing a little bit of everything. I will be helping in villages, whether that includes going to the markets and cooking for them, or helping them get back on their feet by building new houses. Let me remind you, these countries are very poverty stricken and need our help. I will also be working in nursing homes, orphanages, and so many other facilities. But the most important thing that I will be doing while I am over seas in preaching God's UNCONDITIONAL, unfailing, beautiful love that He gives us all. I have so much to learn not only about myself, but how to trust Someone bigger than you and me. I know that God is going to provide for me in all ways that I need. But with this amazing opportunity comes the financial aspect. I need to have $13,805 raised by this coming November to fully finance me for my trip. This cost includes all flights, housing, food, etc. There are deadlines for this trip, $5,000 needs to be raised by this May, $10,000 by July, and then the remaining $3,805 by November. If I do not meet these requirements, I unfortunately will not be able to go out and try to make a difference. THAT is my main goal. Just one person can make a difference, and I pray I get the opportunity to do that. God is so amazing and I am fully confident that I can raise this money. If you feel that God is calling you to help support me on my trip, whether financially or prayerfully, please consider what He is trying to tell you. If you contribute financially towards my trip, you will be sending me out in the world to show everyone how overwhelming our Father's love is. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I really hope you consider the options. With love, Claudia H.
