Spiritual preparation is the most important aspect of your missionary assignment. Without it you will certainly be unprepared for many of the stressful situations that will arise during your ministry.
Before and during your assignment it is essential to spend time with God both alone and with your ministry team. Seek His wisdom and strength. Acknowledge His power and authority. Ask for His direction and guidance as you share the Good News of His forgiveness and salvation.
All missionary work begins with prayer. Prayer softens the hearts of people and helps us be sensitive to God's guidance as He directs us to those who need to hear the good news. Prayer is key to the effectiveness of any assignment.
