We were able today to finish the last section of the Phase 3 lesson and to conduct a review of the facilitator/teaching guide. All together, even though it was very hot and humid, it was a very good day.
The topics that we covered that were especially interesting and helpful to the leaders were those on resolving conflict and dealing with difficult people, empowering and delegating, and how pride and fear affects the relationships between team members.
Tomorrow (Thursday), we will conduct teach-backs where the leaders get an opportunity to teach what they’ve learned. Our approach is to train them, conduct a thorough review of the material, and let them practice teaching it. Then, we ask them to teach the lesson at least three times over the next year to a small group of leaders and to meet monthly as part of a coaching group. Our experience, after four years of doing this, has confirmed to us that by using this approach the leaders will retain most of what they’ve learned.
Please pray for Luke and Daniel in Cameroon for me. Luke emailed me today and informed me that that there may be some civil unrest planned by opponents of the government there on Friday with groups marching, demonstrating, and blocking the roadways. Potentially, Luke and Daniel could possibly get caught up in this and it might delay Luke from getting to airport in time to catch his flight back to the US and prevent Daniel from making his journey to Yaounde, Cameroon where he will be conducting a Phase 1 training session for another group of leaders there before going back to Uganda on April 3.
Well, that is my update for today. Thanks for your prayers!
More to follow tomorrow. Blessings!
