What is Speed the Light?
Speed the Light is a student-initiated, volunteer-based, charitable organization that focuses on providing transportation, equipment, and resources to missionaries all around the world. Their goal is to speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness. Throughout the 75 years following their conception, they have reached out to over 180 countries and have raised over $300 billion for their missionaries. No matter what kind of transportation – whether it be by car, bus, tractor, plane, boat, horse, or wheelbarrow – Speed the Light is determined to expand the reach of missionaries and pastors so that every person has a chance to hear about Jesus.
This year, we have the honor of partnering with Convoy of Hope, a faith-based, international, humanitarian-relief organization that works through churches, businesses, government agencies, and other nonprofits to provide help and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry and hurting. They have been helping people all around the world since 1994 through feeding initiatives, community outreaches, and disaster relief.
