Longtime Gardnerville resident, Emily Allison, is stepping out of her comfort zone to serve people on the other side of the world.
The 20-year-old is getting involved with the World Race, a mission trip that travels to 11 countries in 11 months.
"I feel called to do mission work, and I felt like this was something I wanted to do. It sounds amazing," Emily said. "It's an all-denomination Christian mission trip. We go in and assist in any way they need. It's living in the community, sharing the gospel, loving the people and doing whatever we can for them."
