1. How long have you served as a mobiliser?
2. Can you compare a mobiliser with a particular animal and explain why?
Seng Hock – Australia
About 17 months (since November 2018).
The animal that came to my mind was an eagle. They fly high, see accurately, mostly alone but usually in a pair. They keep their young ones in the nest (to journey with them) before they learn to fly.
Wichai – Canada
About 7-8 years.
We are like “guide dogs”, because a mobiliser’s job is to guide a person to walk in a safe way, and on a good path.
David – United Kingdom
Although there is one sense in which we should all be mobilisers all the time, my own official work as a mobiliser began on 1 March this year.
I think we should be like a Guide Dog: leading people, protecting people, showing them the way and caring for people.
Anna – Canada
I’m not yet an official mobiliser – I am currently in the “job shadowing” phase of the role.
A mobiliser is like an adult wolf: they are part of a pack, and often take turns helping a mother wolf rear their young and train them for future responsibilities. In the same way, mobilisers – along with other believers – walk alongside those seeking to discern their call to mission, guiding them and helping equip them for future service on the field.
Imelda – Philippines
Six years as a mobiliser (formally), but ten years including those years when I was mobilising more informally.
A wolf! Wolves howl to communicate with their pack members. I think this is one of my roles as a mobiliser – to communicate the task of bringing the good news to the nations. Before I was involved in mobilisation, I thought that serving in church and sharing the good news to people around me was enough. I did not understand the great commission until someone “howled” it to me.
Debbie – Malaysia
More than three years.
We are like birds – sharing opportunities to be involved, encouraging others to fly (serve) together in different places and sharing and supporting fellow birds. We also have times of rest, reflection and waiting – planning our next steps when the weather or landscape changes.
Sally – Australia
Officially I have been a mobiliser since October 2018.
As a mobiliser, I feel like a “Kangaroo”, hopping from place to place meeting up with people.
