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.
Every year, we have the honor of partnering with a different initiative that is associated with Speed the Light. This year, we are so excited to be working with WorldServe International! WorldServe International—working in East Africa for over two decades—attacks the world water crisis through established long-term collaboration with powerful partners to bring clean water where it can be sustainably accessed and maintained over time. Set apart by the sustainability of our sites, each clean water project is carefully planned and drilled by our fleet of drilling rigs and support vehicles. WorldServe’s model is focused on the “long haul.” We work with village leaders—including women—before, during and after the drilling process to successfully transform villages. Our mission this year is to give a Double Portion – for anyone involved to donate the amount that they pay for a monthly water bill.
