Be Prepared For Cross-Cultural Ministry

Has God been stirring your heart for the lost? Do you desire to be equipped to travel overseas and minister in a cross-cultural setting,
but you do not think that you could handle it?

One of the most difficult things to do is leave your home and enter into a foreign world. Everyone experiences shock when they enter a new country. Every soldier engages in rigorous training before they enter the physical battlefield. A missionary is a spiritual soldier fighting a very real battle for people’s souls. Therefore, every cross-cultural missionary needs to be equipped to handle the intense spiritual, emotional, and physical struggles that they will face while working in a cross-cultural ministry.

Jesus has given us a clear command to go into every nation and make disciples of all people.
We must not allow this fear of the unknown to keep us from obeying our Lord!
