The Art of Preparation

Vol. 1 Issue 8


How are you today? What has God been teaching you lately? I am praying that this letter finds you in good spirits. On top of that I am thanking God for the amazing months we already have had this year. From going debt free, to the biggest back2school outreach event ever, followed by expanding the Kidz Wing and in less than a month our annual Flavor Fest Conference will be taking place at Crossover Church.

First of all God has been faithful and has allowed me to share weekly with many Crossover members about my missionary stay here in the USA at Crossover. Currently, I have a total of 29 people who have committed to support me monthly for the time that I am serving full-time at Crossover, this support amounts up to $820 monthly! Praise God for His provision through the people in my life here at Crossover Church. The goal is to raise $1000 monthly while residing and serving full-time as a missionary at Crossover.

For me this month of September is a month of learning the meaning of preparation and enjoying the process of preparation. I have come to realize that it is truly an art to be well prepared in anything we do in life. Whether I teach, worship, dance, go to work, or get ready for the next day, it all brings benefit when I choose to be prepared. Jesus trained and prepared his disciples for when he would leave earth. God prepared Moses for his purpose in life, to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Timothy was called by God as a young man and under Paul, he was  being prepared to set an example in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity for the believers. Likewise, I encourage you to be a person who prepares well. I have learned within my six months in ministry that everything I do is in preparation for later. The vision for me is to lead others in the upcoming Crossover Music & Arts Center (CMAC). The upcoming students, upcoming teachers, and the Arts ministry are all to the glory of God. Along with that comes knowing how to lead, how to mentor, and how to stay in order administratively.  So, keep preparing yourself in God, in the Word and in all positions that are presented to you as you serve faithfully.
