“I recently purchased the Peer Counseling Training for my church so I would be able to train some ladies to help with the counseling ministry there. I just wanted to let you know how much I have loved teaching it. The changes that you have made and the activities you have included have been fabulous. They have made the training so much easier to teach and so much more real for the students. I really appreciate your work. In a few weeks I will be graduating three ladies….  I am so excited for the ministry opportunities these ladies will have and the way they will be able to minister to the women of my church …. As a matter of fact, (my husband) is looking at using the training to train some of the men to assist him with counseling with the men of the church.”
