PREPARED IN ADVANCE
We believe God has called us to be people who are changing the world. The name Prepared in Advance comes from the verse Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do.” God gives each of us the opportunity to touch the lives of people around us and to make a difference on the other side of the world. We have found that sometimes the other side of the world is closer than we thought. Through relationships we have built and nurtured, we are able to daily show God’s love to some of the poorest of the poor on other continents. We have also found ways to help refugees from the other side of the world right here in our own area code.
