Jakobus van Zyl – November 2023
“There is the ballroom, and there is the balcony view. You are on the dance floor below. But it is critically important for you to walk up to the balcony from time to time and view the dance floor from above to get an overall view of the bigger picture.” These were the words of one of my most influential mentors when I asked him if it is dangerous to get so involved on the ground in missions that you forget about the reality of the world out there.
I recently returned from an incredibly powerful 10-day mission in Egypt that was a perfect view from the balcony. I was humbled, inspired, and restored during this time.”
