Workplace Conference

Today was a new day after our long day yesterday in the Lagos traffic.  We got home finally last night about 9pm.

This morning we got to the meeting place within 25 minutes only to arrive with few attendees.  At they stated the starting time, we had about 10 people and 20 when we started worship at 9:20am; but by the time that I started around 10am we had about 100 people!  Whereas the pastors were mainly on time the workplace leaders were on African time.  You just have to get use to it.

Response was excellent. We told more stories today. It was a little more passionate but went well both days.  We stressed strongly small groups and relating to pastors and their churches. Met Clem who had been with us on our visit 20 years before and he remembered vividly Davidene’s puppet friend Penelope.

Had Nav staff leadership from 2 other nations who are working on the marketplace and a pastor from a French speaking nation who wants mentoring and help.

So the day went well and we got home in Lagos traffic in only 90 minutes – since it is Saturday.

Another day of encouraging workplace brothers and sisters and seeing them understand how to impact their co-workers.  It ALWAYS lights my fire and keeps me going when even a few are forever changed or at least challenged in their thinking.

Thanks for Praying.
