I have been in Cambodia for the past 4 days with a team of 19. The majority of the team is made up of Anthem students with some other leaders from The Church of Living Water joining us well. This photo was taken 4 days ago when we were leaving. I have included some other great photos from the past 4 days for you to enjoy.
Giving away leadership sounds easy but is always hard.
I lead a team of 19 and because they are such great leaders I do very little beyond shepherding the students and being ready in case a crisis happens.
Everything in me wants to do more but then the leaders I am training would not grow in their ability. So, I have to give up my rights to lead at a lower level to lead at a higher level. Sounds easy right?!
It takes humility for the leader giving it up.
It also takes trusting the leaders you training to lead well and being a champion, not a critic.
I am relishing this opportunity in Cambodia to give away leadership and be present to watch those in my care flourish.
