adventures in missions is an amazing discipleship ministry, utilizing short-term missions and other means. i was on their board for five years, and have such a deep respect for their ministry, and their founder/pres seth barnes (who has a great blog, btw). when they launched their world race program a year ago, i was initially very skeptical, thinking it was gimmicky and potentially counter to the whole point of missions. but i got won over at some point, by the quality of the people involved, their deeper vision for this ministry, and the fruit of the work. i was won over long before i received these pics this week of a world racer named gary who sported his ‘i heart ys’ shirt in various exotic locales:

Gary & Katherine (his wife) are my best friends. I encourage everyone to read their blogs on the site as well as those of other racers. It’s a pretty wild ride.

Wow, pics of me on marko’s blog? I’m honored.

And for anyone who’s looking for a youth pastor out there, I’ll be for hire once I get back to the US. Don’t worry, I do own more than one shirt!
