Worlds Colliding

This week i have been at The Salvation Army William Booth College in London translating for 4 Cadets (trainee Salvation Army Officers/Ministers) from Italy.
It was a huge privilege and I am very blessed to have been able to spend the time with the cadets in lessons and yesterday in worship/teaching services called ‘Spiritual Day’. I left the college just under 21 years ago and this was my first Spiritual day in that time. It was fabulous to see the holy spirit at work powerfully for so many and I believe that God is moving within our future leaders.
Although last week it was announced that i am returning to Italy – yesterday my worlds collided.
I saw my present leadership for London who were meeting for a prayer and strategy day at WBC – a future I will pray for but wont be a part of; I saw my future colleagues from the European anti-trafficking response network meeting to discuss strategy for the future and how we can bring freedom to millions. And then I was sat with my friends from Italy and in that moment I realised that I was investing in the future and the future is going to be amazing believing in freedom.
How weird did it feel – but how right did speaking in Italian feel and how wonderful did spending time with the community feel.
I am blessed but the future is in God’s hands and I know He will help me to see change come about and freedom come to 1000’s I believe.

    Estelle, I just know you will make a huge difference wherever you go with your love of our Lord and the enthusiasm you have for life. You are about the most inspirational woman I have ever met and I am blessed to have known you. What a challenge you have in front of you and what privilege to be given that challenge. My love and prayers will be with you all the way.
