So we've now gotten passed the workshops on Leadership and Organizational Processes, and the members of the Capulispungo Community are ready for the next step. They have already formed their own company and are about to begin operations.

Although they are more than ready to begin (and in some cases are overly anxious), they realize that they still need to learn some things and learn them well before starting. They are trusting in God and know that He has lead them up to this point. God is the one who will sustain them and guide them.
Personally, I find a great satisfaction in seeing my teaching bear fruit… but even more I enjoy seeing them share their knowledge and experience with others.

#8 - Changing a Mentality

Today we worked on making a functional Organization Chart for the new company "CAPANVI C.A" that they have established in order to begin marketing their produce.
To my surprise they had already made an organizational chart! (This was their homework from the last workshop.) And most important is that they really understand what they're doing! This is not common conversation among a group like this, which implies that their mentalidad is undergoing a dramatic change.
Next we talked about how to create a vision for the company. Even though they already have clear objectives and know what they want to accomplish, I needed to teach them to project their desires toward the future. They began to understand this and now are building their dreams for what they want to accomplish with this company.
To see an indigenous group like this change the way they think is impressive. They now have their own company, and are thinking in an orderly fashion of how to advance through their work. Only God can do a miracle like this. I think of the bible verse: Matthew 22:39 - "Love your neighbor as yourself."

"CAPANVI" is born!

Saturday held a major event for the seven men from Capulispungo who are receiving training from our Foundation. They signed the papers to start their own company! This is their first practical step toward their goal. The next is to begin marketing. We are just as excited as they are!

("CAPANVI" stands for "Bread of Life Company" or in Spanish "Compañía Pan de Vida")

And the training workshops continue. Right afterwards, they met in our office to discuss an organizational chart for their new company and the responsibilities of each position.
