God prepared Paul for his future missionary in many ways. One of those ways was that as a kid, Paul went through lots of schooling where he memorized much of scripture from not only the Old Testament, but also some of the Apocryphal books. He also learned how to make tents, which helped him in many different ways throughout his ministry, especially to the gentiles. Jesus has also been preparing me in various ways to further his kingdom. One of those ways was receiving a Christian education where I can learn much more about the Lord than I would have otherwise. Secondly, my dad was a pastor, so he knows a lot about the Lord and I have learned a lot through him and his love for Christ.
