CFC Central Sector Pilots Vanguard Training

CFC Project ReForm had the first run of its VANGUARD training, a workshop for volunteer counselors/ talk therapists who will be deployed in barangays and parishes to minister to community-based drug surrenderers. The training was held in Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish Church in Sta. Mesa, Manila on April 21-22, 2018, and attended by barangay police officers, church volunteers, and lay organization members.

 

The training presented three modules that focus on how to help the drug sur-renderers in their road to recovery. The first module, “To Change Route” focuses on sessions relating to knowing the self, developing trust, overcoming the habit, and the power of prayer. The second module, labeled “Following the Sign”, zeroes in on making the decision to let go, realization, uplifting one’s humanity, and goal setting.Third and the highlight of all the modules is the ‘Road to Recovery’ module where the participants are affirmed, led to living a better life and appreciating God’s unselfish love, introduced to Scripture and promised community support. All in all, the modules direct the participants to ‘STOP DRUG ABUSE’. 


Culminating the training are the practice sessions by the participants to ensure that they are ready to be sent to the areas. Addressing those who have gone through the training, Fr. Danichi Hui, Assistant Parish Priest of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, Sta. Mesa said, “The word of God in itself is the initial blessing, but this will not become a real blessing to others if we keep it to ourselves. Tayo, nasa loob na tayo ng simbahan. Alam na natin ‘yan. Sana huwag tayo maiwan sa pakikinig. Sana may paggawa.” (Yvonne Dolorosa)
