Crisis Intervention Defusing

While we have held training in Crisis Intervention Defusing, particularly utilizing a modified NOVA model, we decided to look at the activity through the lens of two cases in the Bible. The cases involve Job and Elijah. One could be thought of as a bad example, and the other a good example. However, even bad examples can still be highly instructive.

Disaster Team Transitions

The Ormoc City team just got back yesterday (Nov 24) from their busy trip doing things ranging from carpentry to counseling. This team was a partnership of Bukal Life Care and Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary.

The CPSP team to Tacloban just got back to Manila. Other members of the team were ministering with refugees in Villamor Airbase, and training dozens of ministers/volunteers in crisis care. While this is not a team we have direct oversight or support of, two of our staff and two additional CPE trainees joined this group.

The Iloklan team left this morning (Nov 25). It is a partnerhip of Bukal Life Care and Asia Vision-STM. They are working in two communities: Numancia, Aklan and Concepcion, Iloilo. They will be doing crisis care, as well as providing relief supplies.

Our Cebu team is ramping up for its Dec 2nd departure for approximately 1 week. The 10-member team will be doing crisis care with refugees in the daytime, and debriefing and training with volunteers in the evening.

Article on Crisis Care with Theological Perspective

Based on a recent staff meeting at Bukal Life Care, it was decided that we would use our website ( for useful organizational information (as well as our Facebook Group). We would use our Blog here for useful information in the areas of Life Care, Chaplaincy, CPE, and so forth. With that in mind, attached is a recent article on Crisis Care. The article is actually in “Bukal Life Journal” (2012 edition). The entire e-journal is located HERE.
