We concluded the class we were teaching on Friday. Knowledge had been dispensed and at the end of the week, we said goodbye to our new friends.

There was a mixture of  joy and sorrow in meeting fellow believers. Joy in having shared a part of the journey together and sorrow at having to go our separate ways.

We were faithful to our mission in teaching aspiring pastoral counselors in Estonia. The students showed up faithfully to receive what we were giving. In our time in Tartu we have seen God’s hand on our efforts. Now we wait together to see what God does with the time all of us gave.

With a few loaves and several fish, Jesus fed thousands. There is no way to gauge the impact of our meeting together. And the rewarding part is that it isn’t up to us now. God will use it as He sees fit. This is God’s show and we are merely stagehands.
