- The Art of Pastoral Care. Just finished making corrections on this book. The corrected copy is now on Amazon.com and should be active in the next 24 hours. The corrections are mostly minor. You can go to Amazon.com to see it. Otherwise, updated copies should be available at our office by the Lide-Walker Conference (January 8, 2018).
- Dr. Sim Dan-Awan’s book on Ministry and Alcoholism will be done soon. It is actually a dissertation, and it is being moved to book form. Hopefully, it will be done and available by March.
- Dynamics in Pastoral Care. We keep pushing off the completion date… but will be done, prayerfully in 2018. Will keep you updated.
Actually, this is not a new presentation. It was presented 2 years ago at the City Hall of Baguio City. But finally put it on-line.
