The last days of January, 2015, found a group of training specialists gathering from around the United States to facilitate abortion-recovery-counselor training in Bolivia. Preparing for their visit was a group of 22 faithful believers who asked for training to care for the needs of post-abortive women and men in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
Starting the week with personal testimony, the facilitators led the participants through a time of grieving for their own personal experiences with abortion and with other violations of the sacredness of life.
The focus then shifted to how Jesus paid the full price for every sin. Participants were affirmed and blessed in their God-given roles to be mothers and fathers. During this time the team watched as walls were broken down, tears flowed, and the presence of the Lord was evident in the room.
The final day of training began with praise. Excited participants pledged to support one another and teach others what they learned. They are determined to see fruit!
