Is my role finished before the goal is achieved?

Possibly. Your role may complete a phase of the ministry before the final goal is achieved.

Examples might include :

Your job is to translate the Bible into another language so that church planters can use it for their task.

Your job is to homeschool the children of missionaries in a remote part of a country so that the team can stay on the field. When their children all finish high school, your task may be finished before the team’s ultimate task.

Your job is to start a business that a team of missionaries can take over and run as their entry into a creative access country. When the business is well established, you may move on to start a new business as missions endeavor elsewhere.
