Ministry partners in Fiji used American Bible Society’s Scripture-based trauma healing curriculum to care for thousands of suffering people after Cyclone Winston struck the islands in February. Thanks to prior training in the principles of Biblebased trauma healing, partners Wes and Jerusha Neal quickly responded to needs on the ground.
“Thousands of people were part of teaching sessions, received home (or tent) visits, and many were able to be relieved of the burden of the storm through counseling sessions,” Wes reports. “But the work of healing the trauma of Cyclone Winston has just begun.” Through American Bible Society’s global network of local trauma healing facilitators, the healing power of God’s Word is able to reach suffering communities, such as those in Fiji, after disasters strike.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
