Free State Refresher, 24-27 November 2010 The Resting Place, Bloemfontein
Refresher training – Free State
A refresher was arranged for the Free State and Lesotho facilitators from the 24-27th of November 2010.It was held in Bloemfontein at the Resting place, a beautiful place with calm air around it, as well a beautiful garden. Eleven facilitators showed up, from Kroonstad, Bloemfontein and Lesotho. The participants were given extra information which was not in their manuals. The group was enthusiastic to learn and very interactive.
The program focused more on gender, living positively and ARV’s. Interesting inputs and stories were shared around the topic of living positively. We shared few tears and heart warming stories of success. It was clear from the stories shared that this group of participants are very much involved in the field of HIV, and are constantly looking for ways to be better channels of hopes in their communities. This proved to us that Cabsa is steadily achieving its objective of guiding and supporting the Christian communities to become HIV competent. The highlight of this refresher was some of the comments from the participants who expressed that the programme surpassed their expectations and that they were encouraged and refreshed to go on.
The refresher was led by Jerry from the Cabsa office, assisted by Anna Kaura from Mpumalanga. It was a privilege to work with Jerry, and to serve the 11 Facilitators who clearly are serious in the business of impacting their communities in a big way for the Lord. To God be the glory!
