Only God can turn the victims of war into the instruments of revival.
Favor’s Trauma Counseling ministry began during the war with the LRA in northern Uganda and post-war recovery to see God bring healing and hope. Though thoroughly biblical in curriculum and implementation, the healing and services we offer traumatized communities are not always presented as a “religious” function, but as a two-week process that works.
During the time spent with our team in trauma counseling, participants learn about the love of Jesus demonstrated for them on the cross, and receive His forgiveness, prayer, and more emotional healing with the whole group. People learn to extend forgiveness and be emotionally healthy people to their families and other relations.
The original Trauma Counseling curriculum we use was written by believing Christian psychologists from Australia, was peer reviewed through publications at Boston University, and for many years has been adapted and contextualized for the many people groups we serve throughout South Sudan and Uganda.
Favor has discovered an immense demand and need for trauma counseling, as the whole nation from top to bottom has experienced brutal oppression and injustice in generations of civil war. We are working at great speed to bring trauma counseling not only into the towns, hosting reconciliation meetings between tribes, and into the rural villages that continue to raid one another, but we are bring “TC” into the South Sudanese military units throughout the young nation.
