                Offering healing and hope for children in crisis through training and resources

         To defend “ ‘the cause of the poor and needy, ... Is that not what it means to know me?’

             We’re Off to the Philippines!

    O     n June 7 CCTI begins a month-long trip to the
          Philippines with a threefold purpose: first, to
                                  raise awareness of the
                                   condition of children in
                                   crisis in the Philippines;
                                   second, to understand

                                   the challenges and
                                   needs of communities
                                   and caregivers in their
                                   efforts to help the
                                   children; and third, to
                                   communities and
                                  caregivers in their

                               efforts by providing
    practical training in order to bring healing and hope
    to the communities, caregivers and the children.

                                                             H  er name is Idah Kaggwa and she lives in Kampala,
                                                                Uganda, where she is the director and founder of
                                                          Universal Blessed Hope, a ministry to orphaned children. We
                                                          met her at a conference in Beirut Lebanon, in 2010. We were
                                                          immediately struck by her passion for the hurting children of
                                                          God’s heart—especially those residing in her own country.
Due to bloody wars, poverty and HIV/AIDS, Uganda has one of the highest orphan and widow
populations in Africa. Idah is determined to make a difference in her country, and her
perseverance is bearing fruit!
She desperately wanted to take the CCTI Trauma and Crisis Care Course—Module One—but was
unable to do additional travel. Because of her passion, we decided to do the training one-on-one
with her over the internet. She worked very hard on the course and she was awarded the first
internet certificate from CCTI!

I   dah is a tremendous influence in her community, and many caregivers, after seeing the
    results in her children, are requesting training as well. Below is an excerpt from a recent e-
     Thank you for your prayers ... I don't cease talking about you and Phyllis for the wonderful ministry that has been
       such a wonderful blessing to me ... My approach now to children who are hurting is so different that positive
                           results and fruits now are evident. I praise the Lord for you dear ones.
Recently Idah has been invited to share what she has learned through the CCTI curriculum with projects affecting over
200 children in her area; she will attempt this in June of this year! Please pray for her. We thank the Lord for the
privilege of knowing Idah—a great woman of God who testifies to the faithfulness of her Savior:
      I know that the Lord called me to the little ones of this world though many times I am faced with uncertainties,
        disappointments and I am misunderstood; but I do know that my redeemer lives and as I cling unto Him I do
                                know that I won't be ashamed and my call won't be wasted.
