have attended if it hadn't been for this help. He was immensely blessed by this seminar and has come back a changed person. He was able to begin processing so many losses and stresses he's had over the past several years. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I can't tell you thank you enough!
We are working on getting him into some counseling here so that he can continue to work through some of the depression, etc. that he has been experiencing since he returned to the U.S. We are working on funding that but trust that God has that in his care, so we're looking for the door that he is opening.
Thanks again for caring for our son and other MKs who are transitioning back to the U.S. I hope that in the future we'll be in a place financially where we can contribute to the Narramore Foundation so that we can be a part of helping other MKs be blessed and loved on by all of you.
Plans for the October 2014 NCF Member Care and Counseling Seminar in Antalya, Turkey are well under way. With 18 psychologists, counselors, and other staff volunteering their time and expertise, we anticipate serving 35 member care missionaries who serve God’s Kingdom workers in many difficult places throughout the world. Not only does this seminar provide an excellent training in basic counseling and member care skills with a strong integration of biblical principles and psychology, it also enables many of the participants to work through their own stresses and conflicts, which in turn increases their effectiveness as care providers for their mission personnel.
Many missionaries live on low incomes. To assist them, we only charge seminar participants a nominal amount for their room, board, and training. NCF must raise approximately $3,000 per missionary over and above seminar fees to cover the expenses for hosting this seminar.
Thank you for your partnership with NCF to be global expressions of Isaiah 57:14b-15 for God’s people today:
“Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people. For this is what the high and exalted One says—He who lives forever, whose name is holy: ‘I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.’”
