Reflections from Our Module 1 Students
This course was like a soft gentle rain that brought healing to the places I didn't even realize were still hurting.
It gave me comfort to know that I am not alone in this journey and hope there is growth and things to celebrate amidst hardship.
Through this course, God spoke to me through the trainers, and step by step, the Lord is slowly healing my heart. I am thankful to God for the opportunity to be a part of this course.
