I wasn't looking forward to my meeting this afternoon much, because it was very likely to be a difficult meeting. We called a Wesley Guild General Meeting (in other words for all guilders in the Grahamstown circuit) because two executive committee members had resigned and we needed to hold elections to replace them. We also needed to replace the 'vice' for reasons which are a bit complicated!
The meeting was due to start at 2pm, but there were only about 5 people there. No good for serious elections. Eventually after 3pm there were enough people and most of the executive committee had arrived. I must admit I was feeling a bit discouraged.
But the elections went well and I now have a team that I believe will work very well together. It is so good to feel that when I go at the end of the year and there is a new minister with the Wesley Guild, that there will be a team in place to oversee the change. God is good.
