Lori Boruff, Correspondent

    Rebekah Clark is part of a generation whose heartbeat is to change the world through God's love. She is rising to the challenge by participating in The World Race. Clark joins 70 students visiting 11 countries in 11 months. She kick-starts her World Racer support efforts with a garage sale on Saturday, September 17, 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at 704 NW 3rd Street, Aledo.  Other ways to help Rebekah reach her $15,500 goal is donating online at www.rebekahclark.theworldrace.org.

    With a single backpack stuffed full, Clark will make her first trip overseas spreading the gospel to the nations.

    She will join a team of seven like-minded individuals and depart on their mission trip January 2012. They will travel to Philippines, China, India, Nepal, Swaziland, Mozambique, South Africa, Moldova, Romania, Haiti and Dominican Republic.

    Every day on the World Race will be a different. The team will come along side missionaries teaching VBS, helping in orphanages and hospitals, working with construction projects or experiencing the communities and culture.

    The World Race is a ministry of Adventures in Missions (AIM) which is an inter-denominational mission organization. AIM is sending people from different churches and backgrounds around the world on life-changing mission trips. To learn more visit www.Adventures.org.

    Rebekah Clark is a graduate of the former Aledo High School and received her BA in Elementary Education at Elmhurst College, Elmhurst. Her parents are Michael and Denise Clark, Aledo.

    “The hardest thing will be missing out on things at home,” Clark adds. She plans to stay in touch via Skype when possible.
