Support And Care For Traumatised Believers
When believers face traumatic experiences, they need to learn how to heal psychologically from those experiences. That is why trauma support and counselling is vital.
Leopoldo, a pastor from Mexico, was dragged from his house by a group of people, who started to undress him, kick him and pulled his hair. One person kicked him in the ribs, breaking them. The incident broke Leopoldo and his family’s hearts. Open Doors sent the family to a trauma workshop. “Open Doors has supported us with training to overcome this effect, this psychological damage, in my children, in my wife and me”, said Leopoldo.
