Dear Re-entry Plan: It’s Not You, It’s Me

It really has not sunk in yet. It has been a year since my Leadership Development Institute (LDI) Training. Facebook algorithm has been on-point in showing me throwback photos from that month-long, once-in-a-lifetime discipleship training. This year’s LDI schedule also prompted me of how the year went by so fast.

One of my major take-aways from the training was the Re-entry Plan, a three-year guide that we, the trainees, have personally and prayerfully committed to prior disembarkation to our designated ministry areas. The Re-entry Plan is intended to help us track and evaluate ministry progress with the vision of Christ in mind. But the motives behind it is really to fervently pray, plan, prepare and practice by faith our daily walk in the Lord in light of the Great Commission.
