When Paula logged onto social media recently, she observed a friend request from her former student. As soon as she accepted, numerous more demands came through. Paula delighted in overtaking the graduates and seeing where their lives had actually gone.
However, she likewise discovered that not everybody had delighted news to report. One former trainee had just recently suffered a miscarriage. Another was having a hard time with a tough medical diagnosis.
Paula took the time to send out these students’ messages to encourage them and that’s when she recognized her social networks might be mission fields, too. So, she began posting favorable material daily.
