ISAIAH 61:1 Equipping Volunteers for Greater Service

THE MM Core Team of Isaiah 61:1, CFC’s prison program, attended a weekend seminar (April 28 and 29) on “Emotional First Aid.” The session, held at the Ugnayan Hall of the Global Mission Center, was conducted by Dr. Leo Dela Cruz and offered techniques on how volunteers in the prison ministry can reach out to inmates more effectively. 

 

The seminar will allow members of the program to minister to those behind bars.On the second day, Ernie Layusa and Gerry Bernabe from the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) shared their first-hand experience on the current situation in city jails. Albert Alfaro and Roy Locsin, who handle Isaiah 61:1’s pastoral formation concerns, spoke about the program’s teaching tracks . 

 

The last speaker, Rey Tan, an expert in information technology, provided pointers on how to monitor and profile the members through the use of cellphones.


It was an empowering weekend for the volunteers in the Prison Program, with each of them grateful that they are being equipped to better serve the lost and take to heart Christ’s commission to “set the captives free”. (Jun Justiniani)
