SPEED THE LIGHT
The concept is simple: we give so others can speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness. This is accomplished by providing the "essential transportation and creative communication" equipment for missionary evangelism. Through modern transportation, radio, television, print, audio, and digital equipment, our missionaries can help make Jesus known. (VIA the Speed the Light website). Through Speed the Light teen students can help our missionaries get to the field and speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness
