A Brief Ministry Update
As we outlined in our last newsletter, one of our core ministry mandates has been to provide Child-Care Education Seminars. These seminars are typically held at the Myanmar Compassion Project (MCP) office in Yangon, the capital city of Myanmar. MCP has been our national partner for over 10 years.
Near the end of October, our team held a typical Child Health Seminar. Twelve staff members from 9 different children's homes attended and received intensive training for an entire week. Below is a brief report received from Dr. Kristin, who is one of our course directors. “We taught on various subjects, including basic hygiene, disease prevention, conditions requiring a doctor’s attention, nutrition and oral hygiene. In addition, we discussed how to manage a children’s home and the psychological aspects of living life in a children’s home. Practical hands-on First Aid training was also provided. Participants who attended all 6 days and passed the examination were given a valuable box of medical supplies to take back to their homes.”
Asia Heartbeat provided the funds for this important gift, thus enabling their new found knowledge of children's health to be used upon their return. Thank-you for your ongoing partnership and prayer support!
