At MCM we encourage our staff to eat frogs first thing every day...
At a staff meeting recently Barry Matley, project leader of Nourish, encouraged us all to read "Eat That Frog" by Brian Tracy. The frogs are the things you don't like doing and Brian Tracy recommends doing them before anything else. It's not difficult to imagine that our project staff don't like admin!!!
The Restart Project Leader was in a supermarket café "eating her frogs" early one morning, before starting her home visits, when a young woman at another table burst into tears.
Gently she approach the young woman and talked with her about what was upsetting her. The MCM team member asked if she could pray and the young woman agreed. As our team member prayed the woman cried some more.
Before she left our colleague gave the young woman her card and explained to her what she did. The woman said that it was meant to be that they had met as she knew of some girls who need the support available from Restart right now!
Isn't it amazing how God brings people across our path. I'm sure we can join the Restart Project Leader in saying "AMEN".
