the Hope of Survivors

Updates from the CCEF Conference—Sandy Kirkham

CCEF Conference - Sandy Kirkham(From the January 2012 edition of HopeSpeak)

From October 20-23, 2011, Karen (another volunteer) and I were in Louisville, KY, representing The Hope of Survivors at the National CCEF (Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation) Convention. Over 1,200 counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and pastoral team advisors took part in the three-day conference. In talking and sharing with the participants, many expressed the need for a ministry such as The Hope of Survivors. We were privileged to hear many share their own personal stories of abuse and to thank us for raising awareness on this issue. It was evident by the professionals we talked to, the need for this ministry is great and support in this area is woefully lacking. The conference provided an excellent opportunity to reach those helping those in need.
