3 years, 7 months, 1 week, 6 days ago
There isn't really an 'average' day for me--which totally suits my personality. As an office staff we try to start the day together as we systematically pray thru each region where we work. When I can, I like to look at emails first thing and answer anything that seems urgent. It's often the last thing I do in my day, as that's when the office is finally quiet and I can work uninterrupted. By 9 a.m. I'm usually in meetings: either planned institutional meetings or with team members or the 'unexpected' person dropping in with a need. Where we have missionaries, I tend to sit on that administrative board (ie. Bembéréké Hospital, Sinendé Bible Institute, Nikki Girls' School, Bible Translation & Literacy etc). In addition I try to meet with the Leadership Team each week, the Church/Mission Council once a month and the Benin Togo Council twice a year. So...meetings are sort of a normal thing for me and it does mean traveling a bit.
My particular passion is Leadership Development. Sometimes that's in a formal way thru Servant Leadership & Team Building Seminars, or informal mentoring or in a practical way as I give counsel on the different boards.
