Crossing the border into The Netherlands was surreal. I had all kinds of ideas of how my life would be impacted, half expecting some kind of sudden revelation or vision or something miraculous. Instead, I just prayed as I enjoyed the pastoral beauty. Maybe I’d just been building it up in my head for so long, and I needed to manage my expectations better.
I definitely enjoyed my time there. But it is hard to know what to say partly because I have no significant stories to tell of lives radically changed. However, I was definitely in my element with like-minded people. I made some good friendships that have a good chance of turning into future ministry partnerships. And I was also able to encourage and exhort a couple of guys in their calling and ministries.
Hold on for a second.
