We are looking forward to 2020. However, we will be starting off the new year rather slowly.
December 31st. Today. We stopped by La Trinidad District Jail to drop off some presents for the those detained there. Nothing fancy– in fact, there are limitations of what can be given. We gave personal hygeine consummables and some snacks for the 70+ PDLs (persons deprived of liberty). We will start counseling there again on January 14.
January 6-9. Most of us will be at the Lide-Walker Bible Conference at Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary, January 6-8. Our office will be open part of the time. On the 9th, we will be at the Seminary Education by Extension Summit, also at PBTS.
January to March. A number courses are available. Doc Bob will be teaching Intro to Pastoral Counseling at Maranatha Bible College as a module. After that, Doc Bob and Chaplain Celia will continue with the 2nd semester courses at PBTS. In addition, Doc Chuck Henderson and Doc Lyn Montecastro will be teaching modules in Pastoral Care at PBTS and ABGTS.
Additionally, The revision of our book, Dynamics in Pastoral Counseling is 2/3 done, and should be finished in the next couple of weeks.
