Servant Leaders Meeting | 25th March 2011
Grand Flora Hotel, Dubai. Today marks another day of Soul Nourishment building for the Servant Leaders. Servants from Southern Emirates (Abu Dhabi & Al Ain), and Northern Emirates (Dubai & Sharjah) have gathered for the first meeting this year.
But don’t get me wrong this isn’t just a meeting, but a good time to enliven our service, our commitment our love all for HIS glory.
Couples For Christ Foundation for Family & Life. Then here is another meaning for our community.

The crowd rumbled as our Country Servant Bro Luis asked what qualities a Servant Leader should have. Some enumerated Honest, Patience, God Fearing, Open Minded, Generous & a long list, even physical attributes count! Though it seemed simple, but at the end of each sharing, we come up to a fact that in reality we need to be Adaptable in each circumstance. For some would say be firm or others will say be flexible.
A sharing or reaction/feedback has been done to know our stand for this meeting & below are some of them:
In our commitment to serve this community, we sometimes make some other priorities taken for granted or left out… I sometimes do, especially with my family. But then God First, as he said
“Seek He first the kingdom of God & the others shall be done unto you” (—-). With verging tears on his eyes, he praises God for the many blessings he has now! – Brother Aladdin of Sharjah shared.
“It is good to be a listener but in some ways to which I enjoy most in the later year of my service is to be in front as a sharer & be a living testament of the changes I have in my life since being a part of this community”, Bro Dodi, a SvFL from Abu Dhabi shared.
An answered prayer! Says Sis Ashe (SFL Abu Dhabi). All the while we are the once nourishing our members’ souls, this meeting is our turn to be nourished! The crowd replied in chorus: AMEN!
While another SFL, Sis Amie has these following lines that has given much impression & inspiration to me & I believe to others too.

More of our Brothers & sisters have taken the centre stage to share their part. And they have their own stories to tell.
To wrap it up, this is I guess the first short gathering of the community, but worth attending. For it has freshened up our souls! For all of this, To GOD be the Glory!
