As you pray, also invite others to pray for you and your team, as well as for the people and communities you will be serving.

Collecting Documents and Information

Once you've committed to the mission trip, it's important to gather all the necessary information and documents. This may include obtaining a passport, securing visas, and getting recommended vaccinations. Mission Eurasia will provide you with a detailed checklist and assist you throughout this process to ensure that you have everything you need.

Preparing Spiritually and Mentally

In addition to logistical preparations, it's crucial to prepare yourself spiritually and mentally for your mission work. Take time to read and study Scripture, particularly passages related to missions and evangelism. Engage in regular prayer and worship, asking God to prepare your heart and mind for the work ahead.

Mission Eurasia will provide resources and training to help you better understand and respect the cultural context in which you'll be ministering.
