Lizzie Hrycyniak – Kenosha News Article

Lizzie Hrycyniak, a young woman who is a parishioner at St. Nicholas Church in Kenosha has embarked on her missionary trip with The World Race. She was featured in an article for Cosmopolitan magazine (Orthodox Life Wisconsin link here) and on September 24 was featured in the Religion section of The Kenosha News. (Article by Karen Mahoney.)

“And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” — Mark 16:15

Lizzie Hrycyniak tries to live up to that verse.

She’s on the first leg of a nine-month journey in her life proclaiming and working for God in lands far, far away.

The 2016 Indian Trail High School graduate decided to take a gap year before attending college. She joined The World Race, a nine-month mission trip taking her to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Ethiopia, Nepal and the Philippines. While on her mission she will spend time helping, teaching and preaching God’s love among diverse people.

She recently left Kenosha to spend months living out of a backpack and facing whatever challenges come her way.

It is long. It is far away. It is expensive, and it will be tough.

And she says she’s happier than she has ever been.

Sharing their faith

Hrycyniak, a light-hearted 18-year-old, is the only Orthodox Christian in a squad of 43 young men and women who joined The World Race: Gap Year, part of Adventures in Missions, an interdenominational organization.

“I love teaching my teammates about my faith while I can learn about theirs,” she said in an interview via Messenger from a McDonald’s in Costa Rica.

Hrycyniak’s father is the Rev. Stephen Hrycyniak, pastor of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church. Click to read the full article.
