Khersons'ka oblast, Ukraine
I am bringing in a Trauma Healing (TH) program from the American Bible Society into Ukraine. I am working on translating the materials, rewriting stories, piloting healing groups, editing the translations, contextualizing the program, etc.
I am also connecting with local pastors, ministry leaders and organizations to spread the word about this very timely program. Our goal is to establish a Community of Practice (COP) here in Ukraine. This community would be made up of TH practitioners who would be able to respond to trauma needs throughout the country. I am meeting with pastors both in the south in Kherson and also in the north in Kyiv.
Along with the TH program, I am also continuing with the International Women's Ministry (IWM) by deepening relationships with the women that I have known here for years. Many of them are either involved in ministry or are stay-at-home moms. The Lord is also bringing new women into my life who need encouragment, prayer, and/or who wish to partner in bringing healing to those who are suffering.
