I've never been good at it. I hate saying goodbye, ending a chapter and beginning the next one.
Today we began saying goodbye to our students. We are informing them that we will finish our reading sessions on July 13th. Although we will still be having times of coffee, fellowship, and relationship building, our official work with LST will be drawing to a close.
Our goal is to end well, to build continuity between us and the other teams coming for our readers, and between our readers and the church. We want to leave a legacy of people who have drawn closer to God through their time in Bible study.
God has done some amazing things here, and we are sad to be leaving it behind. We want to build a sense of finality with our readers, yet also keeping the expectation of returning. We pray that God will allow us to remain involved in the lives and faith journeys of our friends here.
