WHAT IS HE LEARNING IN MPD?

Working as a Navigator is not something I want to do alone. I need and want to partner with other people, who joyfully wish to invest prayer and finances in my ministry; to support other staff to be effective in their ministry. Together we can do an awesome job. I'm now learning to work more together with them and pray more for them.

WHAT KEEPS HIM GOING?

To be effective in saving and changing lives, staff need to be on budget. I experienced that being coached in my funding is essential. So, I'm eager to train and coach others in their funding. For staff, being up to budget is life changing; it's a new perspective of God in mine and their lives.

LIFE VERSE

Genesis 1:27 "We are created in God's image. So to fulfill our destination, we're at our best when we live our Jesus every moment."

A FAILURE HE'S HAD IN FUNDING?

In the past I asked people for financial support. Now I invite people to partner in my financial support team to change and save lives. I found there's a huge difference between asking and inviting. 

WHAT IS HE READING?

Start With Why by Simon Sinek; How to inspire people to take action. And Nurture by Nature by Paul and Barbara Tieger; How to raise children through the insights of personality type.

HOW DOES HE RELAX?

Sitting around a pitfire and playing sports.
