Connections: Connections is not a ministry in itself but is simply a title—the umbrella under which all our ministries work. Rebecca Snow began as the first Connections director and kept a watchful eye over the projects that have had their beginning through Ladies Ministries. At her death Wanda Fielder was appointed director. She receives an annual report from each ministry and assists as needed throughout the year in many areas. She also serves as an assistant of Ladies Ministries activities at the annual general conference.

Efficiency is usually indicative of a person who cares about what they are doing. God’s Kingdom deserves the very best of care.
Tips for Efficiency
Listen carefully to instructions.
Take good notes. Don’t depend on your memory to remember everything.
Prioritize (use baskets on your desk and label your basket.)
Use a desk calendar and don’t be afraid to write on the calendar. a. Due dates for projects. b. Important appointments. c. Things to do. d. Check day before next day.
Get organized: a. Filing system. b. Rolodex: i. Phone Numbers ii. Important things to remember (markets, carpeting, printers, etc. all on one card.)
Make daily lists of attainable goals in priority sequence. As you finish a task, mark it off. This creates a sense of accomplishment. DO IT! Don’t neglect what needs to be done. When a project seems overwhelming, the best way to accomplish it is just to “dig in” and get started. If my supervisor wants something in a week, I start on it the day it is given to me. Don’t put off tomorrow what could be done today. Something could happen tomorrow to prevent you from doing what you need to do.
The two words “DO IT” really sums it all up with efficiency.
The best kind of work basket to have is an empty work basket, and while most of us will never have that golden opportunity, we can be efficient and diligent enough to do our very best at all times.
