Busy Weekend at Bukal Life Care

Friday, we held our CPE commissioning for half unit trainees. They began their training 6 weeks ago in early June. There are 14 trainees, 10 of whom were doing half unit intensive. The 10 are Matthew, Jaymar, Ely, Eleazar, Claribel, Bhab, Shoneem, Charles, Nap, and Jerry. Most are associated with Philippine Baptist Theollogical Seminary or Lutheran Theological Seminary. Their supervisors (SITs) are Chaplains Vo and Edgar. Chaplain Celia is supervising the other four who will complete their work in September.

Many joined the celebration which culminated with a dinner social at the Bukal Life Care Office. We were blessed with some special guests. These include Dr. Armand Canoy the president of PBTS, and Dr. Aloysius Schwartz, OT professor of LTS. Additionally, Dr. Sim Dang-Awan Jr. spoke briefly on military chaplaincy, and Ptr. Renato Eustaquio spoke briefly on Marketplace (or Corporate) Chaplaincy.
