Lydia Shaw is on the final leg of an 11-month worldwide mission.
The 24-year-old was a teacher at Rineyville Elementary School before leaving for her adventure in July of 2012.
“I got involved with the World Race when I started feeling God calling me to go and spread his name around December 2011,” she said.
She searched online for short-term mission trips, but after reading about the World Race, she was hooked.
“It was far from short-term, but I knew that it was exactly where God wanted me,” she said.
