Finishing the last week of training. The actual implementation is starting next week in the four provinces! In the meantime we are praying for more partners in the ministry.
This week the focus has been on facilitation skills training in community development. Instead of telling people what their needs are, having them discover what their needs are AND their resources. It requires good facilitation skills and creativity to do so. The staff is doing a fantastic job!
The Fountain of Hope staff is traveling to villages to conduct a needs assessment. This is an effective tool to clearly identify problems that need addressed in a community. The staff reviews their findings and then will implement appropriate interventions. This is an important process to insure resources are directed in the most effective way possible.
Please pray for their safety and that the results of the assessment will provide clarity on how best to serve the communities in both deed and in truth.
