Working as a Com Team is all about building connections. Last week Pamela was once again out 'on location' at a church missions fair where, together with staff members from the Muizenberg base, she promoted the work of YWAM in Africa. She took the opportunity to use the promotional materials published by the International Communication Network based in Colorado Springs, USA, showing short videos and giving out many brochures. This gave her the chance to chat with many of the interesed people, to answer their questions and to seek to connect them with our work around the continent.
This week Evelien is the one out of the office. She has joined about 200 staff from YWAM South Africa at their staff conference, being held close to Kruger Park (they are camping so we hope they are safe from the lions!). Evelien will be promoting the School of Field Journalism and the CRIT consultation next year. Since we are hoping to see a regional Com Team emerge for southern Africa in the near future, both of these will be strategic opportunities for potential communicators from this region ... so we hope that Evelien gets the message through, above the roars of the animals at Kruger!
