    a way to manage their own stress as well as helping to calm soldiers In the same way the structure of Psychological First Aid and Spiritual First Aid right down to scripts for what to say provided strategies that promoted a sense of having some control in an otherwise overwhelming situation Chaplain Alexander said All the lectures have helped to give structure to what I do or want to do in helping the soldiers When we got to the topic of burnout and stress management we focused on elements that we thought would be most relevant building teamwork and team support watching over each other recognizing signs of secondary trauma in others and protecting one another from working when overwhelmed holding each other accountable for proper self care and basically making it a team effort to cope and survive After the workshop we met with Colonel Ruslan Kohanchuk head of the department for chaplaincy He is a one person department and looking for help in building the chaplain training

Student Perspectives By Richard Keezer Giovanna Albanese and Alouette Greenidge Wheaton College students offer 10 important takeaways from the GC2 Summit on Refugees where more than 20 evangelical leaders called the church to action while an estimated 1 500 people participated either in person or via live stream 1 The current number of refugees is staggering In June 2015 the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR released a report that worldwide displacement was at the highest level ever recorded with nearly 60 million people forced to flee their homes due to wars conflict and persecution To put these numbers on an individual level Steve Haas vice president of World Vision noted that for every 122 people in the world there is one refugee 2 We have somehow made a global epidemic about us Rich Stearns president of World Vision U S made the observation that Westerners have made the terrible human suffering of refugees about us about our need for safety and security While there is legitimacy in discussing national security this is no excuse for not being recklessly loving Luke 33 17 reads Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it and whoever loses their life will preserve it The speakers encouraged participants to remember that Christians have uniquely engaged with humanitarian crises in the past and need to continue these patterns of engagement during this current crisis 3 Refugees need empathy not sympathy In Wheaton College s Clinical Mental Health Program we talk about the quality of our therapeutic relationship with our clients The most important factor in reaching clients is our ability to show empathy Empathy is the ability to put ourselves in another person s shoes This is drastically different from simply being sympathetic or feeling sorry for them The GC2 Summit helped spark greater empathy for refugees We realized that we must go the extra mile by rolling up our sleeves crossing the street and getting involved to learn what life is like for refugees so that we can more fully understand their situations 4 Be willing to open your eyes and heart Rev Bill Hybels Willow Creek Community Church s founding and senior pastor talked about being open to heart wrenching experiences that move us to advocate and act He suggested we allow these experiences to change us Once we become aware of the refugee crisis our lives should not be the same He compared this process to a second conversion of sorts which allows Christians to embrace the reality of life as a refugee on a frequent basis motivating us to engage in better ways with the refugee community 5 Refugees are uniquely vulnerable May we be a generation that doesn t just talk blog or argue about justice but actually moves towards justice said Christine Caine founder of the A21 Campaign She called attention to the fact that refugee populations are uniquely vulnerable because of their high mobility and low resources As a result they are also at greater risk for trafficking Her organization is working to prevent trafficking in Greece which has become a thoroughfare for refugees on the way to Europe 6 The church needs to create space for conversations about the refugee crisis Regardless of where you stand with the refugee crisis lovingly have patience for those who differ in viewpoints and operate in love in your words actions and deeds Remember that one way dialogue is not ideal Get to know the refugees you come in contact with throughout life Learn about them as individuals and be culturally sensitive to them as well Treat refugees how you would want to be received if you were a refugee entering a new country 7 The refugee crisis should be embraced as an opportunity Given the enormity of this crisis it s easy to get overwhelmed and look the other way The GC2 Summit speakers called on us again and again to shift our mindset away from seeing this crisis as a burden and instead shift focus to see this moment in history as a pivotal opportunity to share the Gospel to show God s grace and to build the kingdom of God Maggie Konstanski disaster response manager for World Relief illustrated this beautifully She recalled meeting a woman who had been forced to flee her country who said I m grateful I had to flee because if I hadn t I never would have known Jesus 8 The church s response will be a marathon not a sprint Refugees remain refugees for an average of 17 years explained Matthew Soerens U S Church Training Specialist at World Relief This average number is especially important when planning how to best structure aid For instance Steve Haas vice president at World Vision noted that only 20 percent of refugee children are currently in school What we do with these kids is going to have a massive impact 15 years from now he said The length of the refugee experience necessitates a long term view of success for those active in refugee ministry 9 Build practical partnerships Practical assistance needs to be offered in partnership with the local church Dr Jamie Aten HDI s founder and co director recommended churches start with what they already do well when starting a disaster ministry That is he encouraged churches to build on their strengths resources and gifts and to collaborate with relief and aid organizations Churches can integrate assistance for the refugee crisis ideologically through teaching communally through learning and practically through faith driven aid Fayez Ishak Missions Director at Kasr El Dobara Evangelical Church in Cairo brought global perspective to the summit and also encouraged global church partnerships to address the crisis 10 Resources are available If we learned anything from this event it s that the need is huge that God has called us to care for the hurting and that we can do something So let s do something wrote summit hosts Ed Stetzer senior fellow with the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism and Micah Fries vice president at LifeWay Research If you

authors and contributors represented in Resilire do not necessarily represent the beliefs of Wheaton College or the Humanitarian Disaster Institute Posted February 1 2016 The Work of Jonathan By Tom Albinson For the vast majority of uprooted people there are few things as powerful as their faith in helping them cope with fear loss separation and destitution Faith is also central to hope and resilience I was walking through Kakuma refugee camp 1 in Kenya and saw my friend Hamid 2 sitting outside of the simple mud brick shelter that he calls home He called me over and asked if I remembered our conversation earlier in the year How I could I forget Hamid had invited me for tea in his home He told me how he and his family have been refugees for more than a decade with no end in sight His wife was suffering from debilitating depression They were losing heart He introduced me to his children and asked whether they would ever be able to leave Kakuma The question is valid Many refugees are well into their third decade of living in the camp Hamid shared his very real fear of losing hope something many refugees struggle with on a daily basis To them hope is as tangible and essential to life as food and water I ll never forget his words I know you cannot open the door to America for us but perhaps you can open a window I told him that I don t have the power to open a window or a door But I went on to say that I know the One who has all authority and who can open doors that no one can shut I told him how the Bible says that God loves us and cares for us I shared how we can tell God about our needs and struggles and that we can ask him for help in the name of Jesus I asked if he would like me to pray for him and his family With his permission I prayed with him under the hot sun outside of their shelter He was deeply moved I left his home that day wondering what God would do Fast Forward to the Present After recounting our visit together last February Hamid said Tom God heard your prayer That very day the UN contacted us to ask if we wanted to register for resettlement to the USA Your God heard your prayer His wife then came out of their home She too was smiling She looked at me and said God heard your prayer Thank you She was clearly in her right mind What a transformation God heard Faith projected fresh hope onto their circumstances Hamid and his family found new strength to help them on their difficult journey Scripture tells us that when David was a refugee on the run from King Saul his friend Jonathan went into the desert to find him and help him find strength in God 1 Samuel 23 16 While Jonathan may not have been able to rescue David or meet all of his humanitarian needs he could help keep David from losing hope We live in an age marked by global refugee crisis The United Nations governments and humanitarian organizations are working hard to keep uprooted people alive by providing security shelter food water and medical care But who is doing the work of Jonathan Who is committed to showing up in the lives of forcibly displaced people in order to help them find strength in God and not lose hope Scripture and the United Nations Agree Faith is Central to Hope Antonio Guterres UN High Commissioner for Refugees noted that for the vast majority of uprooted people there are few things as powerful as their faith in helping them cope with fear loss separation and destitution Faith is also central to hope and resilience 3 The work of Jonathan is different from humanitarian response Humanitarian agencies work to keep people physically alive The work of Jonathan works to keep people from losing heart It is a ministry of hope Local faith communities have a lot to offer when it comes to this kind of work It is rooted in highly relational ministry that breaks isolation by offering relationship through which we can affirm and strengthen a refugee s sense of worth belonging and purpose Such ministry naturally includes investing in the faith and worldview of refugees helping them find strength in the one who sees and hears and cares for them Such ministry plays directly into the strengths of any healthy church community One of every 122 people alive today is forcibly displaced 4 The work of Jonathan is badly needed in our broken world Just ask Hamid Tom Albinson is Founder and President of International Association for Refugees and serves with World Evangelical Alliance as Ambassador for Refugees 1 Kakuma refugee camp is host to over 180 000 refugees 2 Name changed 3 Opening remarks by Mr António Guterres United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees at the High Commissioner s Dialogue on Protection Challenges Theme Faith and Protection Delivered at the Palais des Nations Geneva 12 December

Resilire do not necessarily represent the beliefs of Wheaton College or the Humanitarian Disaster Institute Posted January 19 2016 Every Church Should Have a Disaster Ministry Posted by Jamie D Aten David Boan By taking action now you can potentially save lives reduce harm during a disaster and extend your ministry to those who need help You may not have thought about your church s role in responding to a disaster in your own community After all no one likes to think that bad things might happen it s human nature The unfortunate reality however is that many congregations may be touched either directly or indirectly by a disaster of some kind at any time Since the 1980 s there has been roughly a 400 percent increase in natural disasters The world s five costliest natural disasters have occurred in the past 20 years with three of those disasters striking in the last eight years alone There have also been nearly 5 000 terrorist events annually over the last 10 years Mass shootings have also increased in frequency If your church doors are open after a disaster strikes people are going to come to you for help By taking action now you can potentially save lives reduce harm during a disaster and extend your ministry to those who need help Local congregations are uniquely positioned in their communities to assist with disaster preparedness response and recovery Following are 10 reasons why every church should have a disaster ministry based on stories we ve heard from pastors and lay leaders Ten Good Reasons The scriptural support for such ministries is clear from the proclamation of the church as the salt of the earth to the call to the church to be the light of the world Mt 5 13 16 and the repeated call throughout the Bible to serve the vulnerable e g Mt 25 35 Acts 10 4 Congregations can provide broad based prevention as well as holistic care for individuals after a disaster incident Holistic care provides for the physical emotional and spirituals parts of a person s life Congregations can reach people in need that other groups and agencies cannot reach and thus help those who would otherwise go un served Disaster work can be integrated into the other ministries of a congregation and strengthen those same ministries Congregations can be a source for community action The connection with people in the community helps with assessing needs risks and identifying possible actions Congregations can advocate on behalf of the marginalized and vulnerable as in ensuring fair distributions of healthcare or food or determining where help is needed most Congregations may provide key resources during a disaster Examples include using a meeting space as a rest or evacuation center storing and distributing food water equipment and other resources Congregations are already a center for communication allowing meetings and messages to be communicated to a significant number of people on a regular basis A congregation can provide a willing body of volunteers members of the congregation clergy and leaders who are motivated by love and compassion We have found that many people turn to faith and to local congregations for answers and assistance when disaster strikes The local church is often among the first to respond and among the last to stop working amid disasters If your church doesn t already have a ministry in place to address catastrophes crises and emergencies then the time to start is now Dr Jamie D Aten is founder and co director of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute and Rech Endowed Chair of Psychology at
