The Ceylon Bible Society held a ceremony via zoom on 13th September 2021 at 5.30 p.m. to felicitate Dr. Margi McCombs, the HWOT Director, Children/Teen Trauma Healing,
American Bible Society who is the backbone of the Healing the Wounds of Trauma program conducted by the Ceylon Bible Society (CBS). It was truly befitting to honor her and thank her for all the work she had done to bring this particular program of HWOT for the benefit of so many in Sri Lanka.
She was instrumental in training the Facilitators and doing all the spade work and imparting the knowledge in educating them in this particular field. Our Facilitators were able to learn the art of this special mission, which is not very familiar to Sri Lanka, purely due to the untiring efforts of Dr. Margi McCombs.
Dr. McCombs has a very cheerful personality and is a very simple unassuming person with so much of knowledge engulfed in her which she imparted to our Facilitators. She is very kind but at the same time dealt with a firm hand, and as a result our Facilitators were able to get a proper training. She had been to Sri Lanka and has shared her experiences. She had been accommodated under very trying conditions, wherever she had to go for training, but she fitted in beautifully in a gracious manner.
The program started with the opening prayer said by Rev. Sajith Aruna. The Master of Ceremonies was Mr. N.H. Silva who took us through the entire program
Rev. Fr. Claude N. Nonis – Master Facilitator in HWOT Children, Teen & Adults, Rev. Fr. Jude Peries – Master Facilitator of HWOT Children, Teen & Adults’. Mrs. J.A. S. Pathmaseeli Gunathilaka – Master Facilitator in HWOT Children, Teen & Adults’ also shared their thoughts.
A Video Presentation was made – Greetings from the Master Facilitators & Training Facilitators of Children & Teen TH.
Greetings from the American Bible Society were brought by Mr. Frederick Barasa, Regional Manager – Healing the Wounds of Trauma, ABS, Mrs. Vanessa O’Brien, Global Manager, Healing the Wounds of Trauma, ABS and Dr. Philip G. Monroe, PsyD, Mission Trauma Healing, ABS.
Dr. Margi McCombs, Director, Children/Teen Trauma then shared her thoughts.
Rev. Priyantha Wijegoonawardena, General Secretary thanked all the American Bible Society attendees for attending the ceremony.
