Being strong together, every day

Posted on July 31, 2019 by Iosis

Our staff face extremely challenging situations as they work to transform families’ lives, so bringing the team together first thing each day sets us all up well for whatever may come our way. On Monday mornings we get together for devotions, and every other morning we have a ‘stand up’ which includes waiata and prayer. While not all staff members follow a faith, they tell us they still find this morning ritual enormously beneficial.


“No matter whether you follow a faith or not, the morning prayers at Iosis provides a sense of mental peace and positivity. Starting the day on that note provides such a good vibe and gives me strength for whatever is ahead.” 


“I find them immensely helpful and rewarding. From that point on I believe God is with us all as we move through the day – not just the staff but the clients we work with. For me, I feel He is walking with me when working with these families and helps me do what I need to do.” 


“It was a very different way of starting the day when I joined Iosis ten years ago but now it’s become an important part of my morning routine and I’d miss it now.”
