The Visit came to life when I signed up for a three-month program that was located in Quito, Ecuador called Submerge. In one of our classes, we were assigned a project with instructions to create a website for a made-up product or service. After seeing the results of that assignment,I thought, why not make it public and just see what happens? I still don't know exactly how it happened, but here we are, taking teams around the world, experiencing different cultures, making life long friendships and truly getting to know Jesus outside of the church.
Like many people, I have dreamed of traveling the world. Ever since I took a trip to Guatemala at seventeen years old, I have made it an effort to travel internationally at least once a year. Still, I tell myself over and over again, "Liza, you have only seen 1% of the world." I want to help people experience the transformation that takes place when a person travels outside of their neighborhood, to a foreign destination. My dream is to help others check things off their bucket list, and statistics say that peoples' number one bucket list wish is to travel the world. I want to be an avenue and provide opportunities for traveling to move from your bucket list to your reality. I want to explore the globe that our God created, and I want to do it with other people.
