It seemed that every possible climatic event was working against the Operation Foundation teams' visit to Naseibitu Village. Despite more torrential rain in Suva the team set off on a bleak Tuesday morning to visit and lead the village through a 'Healing Trauma Workshop'.
The impact of TC Winston on Naseibitu Village had been significant with structural damage, loss of crops, and most tragically the loss of one of the young men in the village.
Upon arrival the village herald went through the village summoning all to come to the hall. In small groups they arrived and warm welcome's were exchanged.
The workshop is conducted in a very interactive style over two hours, with time for group and individual reflection and discussion. Each participant is provided with their own workbook and using simple techniques, opportunity for insight and personal expression takes place.
The feedback at the close of the two hours and over the lunch that followed was encouraging. The village leadership expressed their thanks in the way that this workshop had given new insight and tools in the restoration journey.
Thanks to all who have partnered to make this workshop and these restoring events possible. Lives are being restored!
