Reunified Healer and Leader!

Reunified Healer and Leader!

Once a rescued child soldier himself, Joseph is leading his community towards peace!

 .
But it was a long journey to reach this part of his story. As a child, Joseph was abducted, trafficked, and forced to fight in a rebel army. Due to the severe violence he witnessed and was forced to participate in, he battled shame, nightmares, flashbacks, and so much more.
.

With Christ, time and the skilled care of EI’s care team, Joseph’s wounds mended. 

Today he is flourishing! Along with making immense progress through counseling, Joseph completed and excelled through EI’s leadership training. And since being reunified… Joseph has truly launched!
.
With mentoring from the care team, Joseph has replicated the care program that transformed his life. Now, in his community, he leads a care program providing trauma care, discipleship, vocational training, and access to education. For 54 rescued child soldiers and children who were orphaned by the war — Joseph is providing a place to belong… a place to find healing and hope!
.
Since starting… 30 of these youth have become followers of Christ! The gospel truly is good news for His people! We are proud to journey alongside young men and women like Joseph as they live the good news of Christ in word and deed.
