Day 1 Week 1, Jan 2011 Orientation

We have a good group of ladies, but not as many ex-abroads as I was hoping for. We're still experiencing ladies registering for training and not showing up, which is a bit frustrating. Shy and Rowena are here helping. That is a big blessing. We also have an American Pastor and his wife visiting, and they are working to warm up the English of the applicants. 

Usually on Day 1, I don't have great feelings about the applicants, but as the week goes on and they begin to blossom we get a better assessment of their abilities. Training is sooooooooooo essential, not just for work related skills, but even more for attitudes. Getting someone ready to work in a pressure cooker like Hong Kong is not easy, but it is essential.
