Each week we have clients who sit in this chair.
Male, female, young and old...all with one thing in common...pain.
If this chair could talk you would hear it gossip about the intimate details of those who have suffered through various traumas. Thank goodness that chair keeps the confidence of those who sit for an hour or so seeking relief.
We cannot talk about the details either. However, to update you and to ask for prayer I can say that this was a tough week. We had a few new people in the chair. Word of the counseling center is spreading and we have gotten referrals from schools and other programs in the area. And we are grateful for that.
Please pray for the teens here in Belize.
Pray for the children.
Pray for those struggling underneath the weight of a secret that they feel could destroy them or their families.
Pray for more social workers to be appointed in our district.
Pray for the lone social worker here in Cayo and her staggering work load.
Pray for students that Tom is currently training in the Christian counseling class he is teaching on Saturdays.
Pray for the upcoming Healthy Woman Conference that CDF is putting on next weekend.
Pray for us to have wisdom, insight and compassion to relate with each individual who sits in that chair.
We truly appreciate your prayers...we are already seeing the payoffs of working here.
We give praise for the referrals we have received.
We give praise for school principals who see the needs of their students and take action.
We give praise for foster moms, youth workers and teachers who care enough to intervene.
We give praise for the breakthroughs a few of our clients have experienced.
We admire the courage of those who choose to sit and share their pain with us.
We are grateful for each one of you who are supporting us with prayer.
Those petitions are truly valuable...and we cherish them!
