Onto The Mission Field – An Interview With Kristen (Part 2)

I continue to interview Kristen René Rupert… In the previous interview (An Intercultral Take On Youth Ministry). Kristen gave her take and experiences in youth ministry in the United States and South African context, as well as differences in youth culture and how to tackle them. In this interview Kristen shares her “journey” i.e. how she got to serve as a missionary in Cape Town, South Africa as well as very practical things to do if you feel ‘called’ to the mission field. She shares about how she prepared for her move from the local church in the U.S. to the ‘mission field’ in South Africa. She offers advise on what to do when transitioning.

I feel what she shares is very practical and I highly recommend a listen if you feel called to serve beyond your locale. Take a listen!

Are there any thoughts that challenged you? Do you feel ‘called’ to serve beyond your locale? Where? How? Have you done anything similar to Kristen and would want to share something? Is there anything you want to do for God? What is stopping you / is in the way?

Don’t forget to leave your questions and or comments! ;-)

  1. Great interview. It’s easy to forget how God is at work so early before one actually hits the  “mission field”. 

    1. good point ken… i guess if you can’t see God at work at that stage, it may not be wise for one to hit the field, you might just miss what He’s doing there! ;-)
