This was a busy day for us.
A. We had a training session at CRC Hall in Baguio with the CBCP Center for Women and Children. The topic: “Basic Skills and Theory of Pastoral Counseling and Psychotherapy”. 43 attended from over 20 organizations, including DSWD, Couples for Christ, and the Soroptomist Club. Training was led by Rev. Joel Aguirre, BLCCC Executive Director.
B. On the same day, had training workshop on “Church-based Member Care for Missionaries”. This was held at Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary. This is part of Asia Vision-STM’s Leadership Development Program. This is our 2nd year of involvement in their program. Over 40 attended. Celia Munson (BLCCC Director of Training) was the trainer, with a bit of help from her husband Bob (BLCCC Administrator).

After months of planning, we have started. We began doing psychometric tests with a local school and in partnership with University of Cordilleras Thursday and Friday (Nov 10-11). We have a couple of more lined up. Looking forward to seeing how this will go.

2. http://www.facebook.com/bukallife. Our Facebook site. This probably gets updated the most frequently.
