Sincerity and Perseverance

by Mario Vega

We recently completed our last year’s evaluation of cell ministry. We had positive results in all aspects, but we didn’t reach all the goals we had set.

The whole church knows that the goals were not reached, especially those involved in the cell work. To disclose that some goals were not met, serves to reflect on what was not done or on what was done poorly.

Evaluations allow us to make mid-course corrections, to focus more, and to set new goals. But there has never been even the slightest indication that we should abandon the cell work or adopt a new strategy. On the contrary, each time we evaluate our cell ministry we are encouraged to press ahead. We resolve among ourselves to do an even better job –even in the midst of difficulties.

We can share limitations and tough evaluations without losing the inspiration to keep on persevering. There’s no reason to hide those areas that are less than deal. At the same time, we must never lose the model of the New Testament church.

Sinceridad y perseverancia

by Mario Vega

Recientemente terminamos nuestra evaluación del trabajo celular del año pasado. Tuvimos resultados positivos en todos los aspectos, pero no alcanzamos todas las metas que nos habíamos propuesto.

El no haber alcanzado las metas es algo conocido por toda la iglesia, sobre todo, por aquellos involucrados en el trabajo celular. El dar a conocer que algunas metas no fueron alcanzadas, sirve para reflexionar sobre lo que no se hizo o sobre lo que se hizo mal.

Las evaluaciones nos permiten corregir el rumbo, enfocarnos más y proponernos metas nuevas. Pero, nunca ha existido ni la mínima mención de que debamos abandonar el trabajo con células. Por el contrario, cada vez se reafirma mucho más la visión celular. En los peores momentos lo que existe es una resolución por hacer todavía un mejor trabajo.

Así, se comparten las limitaciones pero no se pierde la inspiración para seguir perseverando. No hay porque ocultar que las cosas no siempre son ideales, pero nunca se debe perder el modelo de la iglesia del Nuevo Testamento.
