Our Mission

To provide clean, educational resources for pre-missionaries and their families to learn about whatever country/state they are called to serve in.

Our History

When I received a mission call to serve in Argentina in 2008, I wish there had been a video cultural resource.  So, over the past several years I’ve played around with ideas and gained some skills and decided to create PreparetoServe.com. Although this project has existed mentally for several years, my wife and I launched the website in November 2012.

How you can help

We can use all the help we can get. I’m attending school full time and working on the website whenever I get the chance.  If you would like to help, there are several ways you can help:

  • You make a donation to sponsor the creation of more resources for the country/state of your choice.
  • You can help us find appropriate Youtube videos relating to the culture of each country and U.S. state.
  • You can create/upload cultural videos to Youtube and send me the URLs so I can embed them on the site.
  • You can be interviewed about your mission or your home country/state.
  • You can tell others about this resource.
  • You can share your ideas about how to improve the website.
  • You can subscribe to our Youtube channel at Youtube.com/PreparetoServe.

Well, thank you so much for taking the time to visit the website. I hope it will be useful to you, if only in a small way. Thank you for your support!  I know as we learn about others, God will help us know how to best serve them! God lives! Take care! –Alex
