Crystal had only been a Christian a few years when God began to stir in her heart a desire to do mission work. She first volunteered at a homeless shelter where she helped to feed people and share the gospel as she visited with them. She frequently would meet with new believers and disciple them in God’s word. An opportunity came for Crystal and her husband to be part of a short-term mission team with their church to Mexico. As she and her husband grew older and they went from parents to grandparents, they began financially supporting missionaries and mission organizations that had the same desires as they did. They also kept a prayer calendar and prayed for the many missionaries and organizations they had come in contact with through the years.
Crystal is an example of the mission-minded woman. Through her different seasons in life, she remained focused on missions.
Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
