It’s that time of year again! MOPS leaders all over Australia are beginning to lay things out on the spare bed… One pile of conference necessities; one pile of conference niceties; one pile of travel lollies; and one pile of things to help Dad handle the weekend without Mum.
Some of the predictable things include an encouraging keynote speaker; an elective tailored to your MOPS Leadership position; good food that you don’t have to prepare yourself; and the encouragement of being in a room full of women walking through a similar part of their life journey to you.
Then there’s the frivolous parts. That’s always surprising! (So maybe we’ll have to wait to hear back from each state on just what goes down in the games; fancy-dress; pampering; and practical jokes department…)
With Queensland the first cab off the rank this weekend, just make sure that you get onto www.goregister.com.au and get your registrations in. And make sure that you are encouraging other members of your local MOPS Leadership team to get their registrations in and to join you in being encouraged and refreshed to better fulfil the MOPS Australia mission to encourage and equip mums of young children to realise their potential as mothers, women and leaders, in relationship with Jesus, and in partnership with the local church.
Now, go and get packing!
