Investing in our workers

Life has been very busy recently, and we have a lot of updates to share with you all over the coming days – including photos of our current visitors from Perth Bible College. God is blessing us in many ways, and we are seeing his hand at work in our community.

Today we would like to update you on some recent staff development activities.

Our workers are a mixture of paid staff and local volunteers, pastors and teachers, cooks and cleaners. Most have not had the opportunity for formal tertiary education (although a number are currently taking part in our Work Skills and Education Project), and many recieved limited secondary education. So on a regular basis, Sochea organises staff training sessions to increase the knowledge and skills of our workers.

This time, Sochea, Phearin and Vireak (TLC’s Manager and senior teachers) led sessions focussing on new teaching strategies and activities that they have been learning about recently. Often, the best source of this new information is when teachers from overseas visit us as part of mission teams. We always value the input!

Next on the agenda were Ura and Lay, who passed on the First Aid knowledge they had gained on a recent course they attended in Phnom Penh. This training covered the basic principles of emergency First Aid, including resuscitation (which caused a few chuckles!).

Last of all, everyone headed off to the doctor for 2 rounds of blood tests and vaccinations. Tuberculosis (TB) is common in this part of the world, and our workers are at greater risk than most, due to the number of different people they meet on a daily basis. So TB vaccinations were an important step in taking care of our workers, as they minister to so many needy people in the community.

Some had more experience with needles, and put on a brave face…

While others found it to be a much less enjoyable experience!

Please pray for our team, and ask the Lord to continue to bless them. And if you would be able to help us in any way as we employ, train and care for our workers, we would love to hear from you! enquiries@fellowshipofhope.net
