What is the chance that three women, two of which traveled together, and the third who happened to be in the same place at the same time as the first two women, would find each other at a WOF Conference weekend? There are so many women there. Woman, after woman, after woman...The chance seems pretty small, but in reality it did happen.
Remember from my previous post that going into this years' WOF I wasn't as, um, excited as I had been before? Well, I had already made a few jokes about "quitting" as group leader for next year before this weekends' event. But then, as I sat next to my new friend, Jody....I listened to her excitement and heard her say several times, "....next year....". That excitement was contagious. It reminds me of Women of Faith a few years ago when the theme WAS "Contagious Joy."
Jody encouraged me to attend a Group Leader meeting with her. She insisted on several occasions, "we can do this!" So we went. And who did we meet? A lady from our small town, from a nearby church, Carol M. She was there as well, wanting to get some tickets for Women of Faith 2012, but feeling hesitant at the same time as this is a big commitment. And unless you remember that God is in control, you can quickly find yourself overwhelmed with the process.
We decided together we could do this. We could bring to WOF in San Antonio 2012, at least 25 women. We exchanged phone numbers and email addresses in order to keep in touch.
What a God-Moment. First, Jody to lift me up and bring back the excitement I knew I had, then to meet Carol, who was unsure about doing this group leader thing on her own. Together, we're a team, and I can't wait to see the blessings that come from this.
