strange, being here, yet not. I feel somewhat in the twilight zone yet I have things to do. Things to help with. The closer I get to leaving, the more I remember the stuff that I like about being here. The people are really great. I rarely have to repeat instructions or do followup (well, there are 2 people that is a constant struggle, not all).
Handing off things is proving to be more difficult than I thought. Although I don’t do a lot (in some people’s eyes at least) the things that I do are pretty involved. And everyone is so busy, you have to choose between them on what to give to whom. When you do make that choice, it is either very well received or very poorly received, seems like there is no middle ground.
We’ve been able to accomplish a lot in the 20 months that I’ve been hanging out here. Remarkable actually. The hand of God has been fully behind me. It is amazing and awesome to see God’s work first hand. It really drives home the point that “ministry” is where you are at, not where you want to be. If only we could remember and apply that at all times, think of the results!
