Flemings in the Philippines!

This Pilgrim’s Progress…

This Pilgrim’s Progress… As we gathered last week as a staff team and spent time in this passage, I was left with several questions to ponder. Among them, what does good shepherding of non-believers look like? And what TRULY motivates me as I work with students–is it a crown of glory from the Chief Shepherd, or something else?
