This afternoon I stopped in at the pharmacy to get the anti-malarial and antibiotic meds I’ll need for my trip to Haiti with MMI in a couple weeks. There was some confusion about my new benefits coverage, so I had a conversation with the pharmacist. He asked where I was going and it turns out he had done a project to Haiti with MMI several years ago. He was very interested in the trip I’m a part of and took my copy of the project calendar to copy so he can consider going again sometime. He also offered a discount on some helpful medications for the people wee’re going to serve. Two reflections: 1. It is very encouraging right before an adventure like this that carries a certain amount of uncertainty to have these kind of “coincidences” happen. 2. People have long and strong memories about things they put some effort into. It says a lot that the people I meet who have interacted with MMI have positive lasting feelings about the organisation. In another industry this might be called brand loyalty; in the non-profit sector it reflects very well on the character and competencies of a largely volunteer based group. I wonder how positively people who were involved in things I was doing a decade or more ago reflect on those experiences? I wonder how positive the reputation of Catalyst will be for those we’re working with now when another decade has passed?

I am very excited to be getting our mentoring program underway in the next several weeks. There are some amazing developing leaders I’ll be connecting with as they pursue the things they consider themselves called to do. For a basic outline of our mentoring program click here.
