prepare-to-serve-missionaryThe purpose of the website Prepare to Serve ( is to help you to learn about people so you can better serve them.

When Alex received his mission call to serve in Argentina in 2008, he wished there had been a video resource so he could learn more about Argentina’s culture and people. But there wasn’t. So, after he returned from his mission, he thought of the idea for such a resource and started last year. The site now has links to the following:

  • 240 videos about missionary preparation
  • 4,692 videos about countries
  • 442 videos about states
  • 800 blogs and websites from missionaries who serve around the world
  • Recommended Missionary Resources

How you can help

Since this is a personal project, Alex can use all the help he can get. He attends school full-time and works on the website whenever he gets the chance.  Here are some ways you could help:

  • Tell others about this resource.
  • Submit ideas about how to improve the website.
  • Index YouTube URLs relating to the culture of each country and U.S. state.
  • Create or upload cultural videos to YouTube and send him the URLs so he can embed them on the site.
  • Be interviewed about your home country or state.
  • Donate money to sponsor the creation of more resources for the country or state of your choice.

If you can help, contact Alex.
