Theme: Teamwork
Title: Teamwork Makes The Dream Work!
Turn to you neighbour & say it!

A farmer noticed a highway department truck pulling over on to the shoulder of the road. A man got out and dug a hole, then got back into the truck. Then the other occupant got out, filled up the hole and got back in the truck. Every fifty yards this amazing process was repeated. íWhat are you doing?í the farmer asked. The driver replied, íWeíre on a highway beautification project, and the guy who plants the trees is home sick today.í
Whatís the bottom line (morale)? No Unity, no Productivity!
God blesses those who work together in unity.

Great TEAMWORK makes things happen more than anything else in organisations Ė more than skill, qualifications or money! Whether itís your Family, Church, Ministry, Business, Personal life
