Today we have been able to have a meeting with Walter and he has made a renewed commitment to start work half time with the Yotkom and Bregma medical teams. It had been planned for him to start work in January this year, however, his previous full time work as a counsellor with Food for the Hungry was extended for an extra three months . His position there will end this month.
This means he will be able to commence with YOTKOM at the beginning of May and will come to the clinic three mornings a week . Walter will also be participating in our team building day tomorrow (Saturday ) and this will be a great opportunity for him to build relationships with our team. We believe the position of pastor/chaplain/counsellor is a vital one .
Neil is busy preparing material tonight for our seminar tomorrow. He is finding the old style paper, tape and pencil rather time consuming ways of preparing a presentation ! (no IT facilities at the hotel unfortunately )
We are sure that many issues will be raised tomorrow and that the process will be very worthwhile in strengthening the project.
