I was sick over the weekend and took a day off from work today. I arrived early in kaikan for our all leaders meeting tonight. GD came earlier and none of the Region leaders was around during that time. Apparently it was due to some road construction on the bridge that make all the leaders from the other side of the river late. KP who is suppose to in-charge of the slides are late. He called and told me, being an emcee, to drag on, and at the same time he will email tonight's meeting slides to kaikan. I understood most of the leaders has already in the hall and I can't dragged any further. I told Region chief who was leading the Daimoku to start Gongyo in 5 minutes. I told him we might run into a risk that there will be no slides for my part (review of Campaign 2) and his part (encouragement for Campaign 3).
As I started the meeting and reviewing the kosen-rufu results of our previous Campaign (without slides), the members are all very attentive and pay most of their attention on how far we have done. When come Region Chief speech, our Multimedia group, KA, managed to finish downloaded the slides KP sent. Timing was just nice for Region Chief Speech. And the subsequent slides for GD speech were all OK.
When GD speaks, he gave his all and encouraged us on the NHR Bold Struggle chapter. I can feel GD's spirit in me. Even though the meeting did not end until 10:00pm, all the leaders were listening attentively to GD and none of them leave early.
The meeting ended with great success with our Daimoku sansho.
I realized that every meeting is a challenge, a struggle. In fact a Bold Struggle, a struggle to overcome whatever circumstances that may popped up unexpectedly. A strong determination and prayer will ensure a successful meeting.
