Staffing a display table at Assembly (the annual conference for Canadian Baptists from central Canada) revealed a lot about the personalities of our staff and volunteers. First it divulged that our Women’s Director is known and loved by everyone in the (Baptist) world. It also disclosed that most of our staff and volunteers are surprising introverts who find it difficult going up to strangers and engaging them in a conversation. It also unveiled that our communications intern, Pauline, is a fearless extrovert who in a few short minutes met many people and communicated to them what Oasis is about. Soon she was networking me in with others who had skills or talents that related to Oasis.
Assembly was a good time to connect with old friends of Oasis and to make some new friends. It also identified some other organizations that do related work enabling us to compare notes. Thank you everyone who visited the Oasis table.
