Important things to remember before each mentoring meeting

  1. Pray for them
    • The key to spiritual power
    • It weakens resistance.
  2. Find the right place; set the right time
    • A neutral place that is appropriate; check mood and look out for interruptions.
    • The time must be regular — no longer than 1½ hours.
  3. Be ready to meet pressing needs
    • Be aware of their life situation.
    • Always bring money.
  4. “LEAD” them
    • Listen
    • Empathize
    • Ask
    • Disclose
    • … ask open-ended questions and be sure to reassure.
  5. Teach them — five steps:
    • Tell them why.
    • Show them how.
    • Get them started.
    • Keep them going.
    • Have them pass it on.
