“Hello Kim-Sensei! I’ve been waiting to meet you!”
These were the first words nine-year-old Arashi said to me in person. After waiting two years to move to Japan, these words and getting to meet Arashi were truly a blessing.
These days it is common for people to move from one job to the next every few years. So when someone spends an extended amount of time, over 20 years, working at the same company it says a lot about the joy and passion the individual has for their work. It also says a lot about the organization where the person chooses to work.
In this most recent Conversation with the CEO, Bill Meier talked with Patty Eagon, Advancement Services Manager, about what it’s been like to work at Kingdom Workers for over 20 years and what she loves most about her work.
Every season has its unique sight, sounds, and smells. In Wisconsin cooler weather and pumpkin pie mean fall. The smell of sunscreen and lake water mean summer is here. For teachers, it’s the sound of children filling the hallways on the first day of school that ushers in the start to another year.
And while most teachers begin that first day of school with a drive to work, teachers at Our Savior’s Lutheran in Peridot, Arizona have a much shorter commute. Just a short walk up the hill. This is because working in Peridot means living on campus. Seventh and eighth grade teacher Chris Mundstock explains why, “Because we are guests on the Apache reservation, we are not able to live anywhere else but here on campus.”
Thanks to surveys and questionnaires, we were able to measure how much of an impact the Global Gathering had on the lives of all attendees.
