The CRC Counseling Department recently hosted a "Honoring God with Your Body" workshop with 60 students to sensitize them about the dangers of teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, rape prevention, and the Biblical foundation for sexual purity.
The workshop was facilitated by case managers Deborah, Amie and Abdulai. It was conducted because many teenagers in Sierra Leone are involved in drug and sexual activities. Over the last year, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia have been dealing with an epidemic of young people becoming addicted to a substance known as kush or K2. Abuse of the drug has already killed several people in the region, and largely impacts 18-25 year olds. As a result of this epidemic, the CRC wants to help the children in our program abstain from these activities.
One of the key takeaways from the workshop was that teenagers have a responsibility to honor their bodies and to make choices that are consistent with their values. The speakers also emphasized the importance of having clear boundaries and of saying no to pressure from others.
The students who attended the workshop were grateful for the opportunity to learn more about these important topics. They said that the workshop helped them to think more deeply about their values and to make better choices about their bodies.
The CRC Counseling Department is committed to providing teenagers with the resources and support they need to make healthy choices about their bodies and their sexuality. The "Honoring God with Your Body" workshop is just one example of the department's efforts to help teenagers live their lives in accordance with their values.
