Well first, let me apologize for the lack of blogging here this week. There are three main reasons for this:
First, we have 54 Canadians staying at the hotel (an amazing number, as there are a number of prospective new team leaders). This means that there are 54 people vying for wifi all at the same times.
The second reason for the lack of blogging has been the number of meetings that are part of Leader's week. We have our general meetings, workshops, and special speakers. This year our guest speaker has been comedian Phil Callaway. He has brought great levity and also some very insightful teaching on leadership and communication. In addition to our general meetings, I also have board meetings to attend. Our Shelter board, to this point, only meets face to face twice a year. As the Lord increases our capacity, the policies and preparations that we need to make as a board increase and require more time, discussion, debate and resolution.
