Three days ago, we all presented our three-minute stories on how we were called to Wycliffe. We were informed that three of us would be asked to give our presentation again at EnterMission, the Wednesday worship service attended by the members in the Orlando office as well as streamed online.
Guess who one of the three chosen was?
SPOILER ALERT it was me
So, I did. It actually went very well, and many people told me afterwards how much they had enjoyed it. Some informed me that I didn't act nervous at all. I informed them that I should have taken up acting. But anyway, I'm glad I was able to be an encouragement to the people there. Perhaps God is trying to get it through my head that the things He has done in my life are worth telling!
I also met the CIO today, and his eyes lit up when he heard that I'm a SQL Server DBA. I think it's now his personal mission to convince me to come to Orlando instead of going to PNG. Well, good luck with that, Doug!
All 47 of us drove over to the Cresons' house for dessert tonight. Bob Creson is the President of Wycliffe USA, and he and his wife told us their story. There sure are a lot of stories around here. I wish I could remember them all.
