CBN Asia Prayer Center, Compassion International, Trained Counselors in Masbate

To hone local case workers and counselors, the CBN Asia Prayer Center External once again partnered with the Compassion International Philippines – Masbate Cluster, and conducted a Case Workers’ Conference in Love of Christ Church, Masbate City, on November 27 to 29. 

Counseling Training Masbate 1

As a ministry dedicated to alleviating children’s poverty, Compassion International’s Masbate Cluster sought the help of CBN Asia in training their case workers – following their first counseling training this year which was facilitated by their Samar Cluster in Northern Samar. 

According to Grace Olazo, Masbate Cluster’s Partnership Facilitator, the training is very important because their counselors are communicating directly with families. 

“Whenever our case workers visit the families and they open up about their personal concerns, our case workers are sometimes caught off guard. Now, they are aware on how to handle the situation after learning a lot from the training,” expressed Grace.

Counseling Training Masbate 2

A total of 64 counselors and leaders from different churches actively participated in the trainingThey underwent sessions on Basic CounselingLife TrapsPositive Child Discipline, and Counseling the Couple with Extra-Marital Affair. 

Essentially, these efforts aim to prepare them on assisting and counseling not just the children, but their own families as well.

These trainings are significant so that whenever they visit their beneficiaries, who are mostly children, they would know how to conduct basic counseling. We equip them [so they will be ready] for different issues they may encounter,” shared trainer Rodnie Ruelos, Prayer Center External’s Church Partnership Coordinator.

You can also bring the counseling training to your church or community. Call the CBN Asia Prayer Center at 8-737-0700 local 903 to know how you can partner with us.
