I was nestled in the foothills of Nevada, sitting at a dining room table with a cross breeze gently blowing through the room. My laptop sat in front of me along with a cup of coke and a bowl of popcorn.
A spreadsheet, a google doc., and a list of requirements for ordination in the Wesleyan Church were open on my laptop and I was dreaming. Dreaming for our Wesleyan pastors in Mongolia. Imagining what would be helpful for them as pastors and leaders. Thinking about who the best teachers would be for those different courses. Wondering if week-long intensives are the most effective way for them to learn. Brainstorming how else we might invest in and develop these pastors.
It’s been a while since I had enough brain-space to think about the future. I’m grateful for our trip to Nevada and Northern California to visit partners and family before we head out.
