At this moment, one of our colleagues is visiting Ivory Coast. She is there attending a conference where all of the contact persons from the different West African countries come together for training and encouragement in the after care they are offering program viewers.
The three day conference provides the opportunity for pastoral care workers  to meet with each other. During this time they will receive training on conversation techniques, registration systems as well as just encouraging each other and sharing experiences. In years these conferences have proved valuable as many of the individuals attending  are working in solitary places without colleagues to encourage them.
In addition to attending this conference, our 3xM colleague will be meeting with our partner, visiting the studio as well as speaking with our program viewers.
We wish her safe travels and look forward to all she has to tell upon her return!
