If God loves us, why do we suffer? This question lingers in many people’s minds especially in the current times when things have changed drastically for many.
We suffer. We encounter distressing experiences in life, and sometimes we lack someone to talk to. Talk of losing a loved one, getting caught up in an accident, rape, addictions, suicide, and now Covid-19 Global Pandemic. These traumas affect our very being. They disrupt our lives and the danger of not sharing is felt in our bodies, our relationships, and overly in every area of our lives.
Bible Society of Kenya conducts a Bible-based Trauma Healing Programme that helps people to find hope in life by taking them through a healing journey. We are currently holding online training sessions on Zoom and aired live on Facebook and YouTube to help many people heal from wounds and pain.
These sessions began in January 2021 with 45 participants. Participants have since grown to over 79 and we thank God for the opportunity to help people through the online space.
There has been tremendous growth and interest in this programme as we have conducted the weekly sessions. We also receive requests from people who have undergone different challenges seeking help and, in some cases, needing someone to talk to.
I was able to help a friend who is facing a difficult time in her marriage. I am glad I have attended these trauma healing sessions. The principles are applicable, and I have found the sessions helpful even to my personal life. Mithali, participant
We believe that the Bible is the true source of hope for life’s challenges. We, therefore, encourage our audience not to isolate themselves but to find people they can talk to.
