We were in Thailand and India to help train our staff to safely use technology that connects Christians with their brothers and sisters from around the world.
With 6 meetings in 5 weeks, it was exhausting and exhilarating at the same time.
In Thailand, Keith spoke on how to align others to the mission. Kay helped women join the community of staff women around the globe. We participated in conferences for operations and HR directors from around the world.
A second conference in Thailand involved 23 people from 8 countries in Southeast Asia. Kay excelled as a teacher. She set a high standard for the rest of us to try to meet. We taught people to use our simple tools to connect with others to share ideas and learn from one another.
Then we moved to India .
Ten staff from India and five from Asia, Africa and Europe participated. Our goal was to train the trainers who will, in turn teach this material to others. Each person learned how to build a secure, private web site for their ministry members using our Global ConneXion tools. Their members then gain access to materials and contacts with Christians from all over the world.
Michael, the director for the entire region, explained to me that staff are finding it increasingly difficult to meet students on campuses. We are working with Michael to find ways to use technology to enable staff greater connection with students for evangelism and discipleship.
