Counselor Training in Uganda

June 1, 2015

Sometimes up front sharing ideas I have . . .                                   GROUP

. . . and sometimes up close listening to them sharing their story,     HANDS

it was a fantastic cross-cultural experience, training 100 social workers in the basics of counseling.

The whole trip is best captured in this video (to view it, click on “this video”), produced by the Austin Ridge video team.  Fantastic group of people and an honor to have been invited to join them.

Counseling in Uganda with Medical Team

May 18, 2015

What a stretching experience to provide counseling in Uganda as I joined with a medical team from Austin Ridge Church.  My role was to counsel with those who had just received their diagnosis of HIV-positive.  Jeremy Ezell heads the counseling program at that church and he invited me to join him in providing counselor training to 100 social workers in the southern city of Gaba. After our tasks were completed, we had two days free to join the medical team in the north, in Pader.  This video says it all.
