Doc Paul’s CPE group will be coming back soon from HK. Four of the five were able to go. Welcome back!
Next week, Dr. Dickens (CPSP Diplomate and professor of Pastoral Counseling at Gardner-Webb University) will be with us for several days. He will be teaching Guided Readings in Pastoral Care at ABGTS. Bob, Celia, and Doc Paul, from our group, look forward to both the readings and the guidance.
CPE starts up again on the 15th for Celia’s group and the 20th for Doc Paul’s group. (contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions)
Oh yeah, and PBTS first term starts on the 16th.
August we will start our Lay Shepherding CPO in Bocaue, Bulacan (Lord willing).
Things are a busy busy..
Summer 2014 CPE. With John Mark, Alexis, Sr. Anet, Sr. Isabella, Rob, and (Supervisor) Celia. Absent is Cori, since she is the photographer.
Two photos included here. One of them is a picture of the first batch of Summer Interns for CPE. This batch is relatively diverse with two Catholic, two Anglican, and two Evangelical ministers each. Heading the orientation is Celia Munson, CPSP-certified Supervisor-In-Training, serving with Bukal Life Care. A second batch of Summer Interns will begin in April.
The other photo also involves Celia. This one involves Basic First Aid training with Asia Vision-STM. Asia Vision-STM is a training and sending organization, based in Baguio City Philippines, for sending Filipinos (especially) into Southeast and Central Asia on short-term missions. Bukal Life Care has been partnering with AV-STM for some time now with training, materials, and evaluations. While it may seem strange that we would be leading a class on Basic First Aid, Bukal Life Care takes the term “Life Care” seriously. It is holistic– concerned with physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. As such, it is important for the STMers to be healthy, but also to be a help to others. We were also able to provide some supplies to them to help them in this work. Their blogsite is www.avstm.wordpress.com.
