Thank you for your interest in learning more about this Portuguese
Heal a Hurting Heart (HHH)children's curriculum.
The structure of this Heal a Hurting Heart Training and children's
Curriculum follows the
Bible Society Healing Hearts Club, a
Bible-based Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) healing programme for children
who have experienced war, abuse, or a similar human or natural disaster.
Their original programme was written for the children of DR Congo
and we are grateful to be able to follow the same structure and
guidelines establishing a Caribbean Hurricane version and expanding

From a child's point of view, we have entered into a very strange
time. Schools are closed and its not yet holidays! There is no football
training, sports, no swimming, no drama, music or dance classes.
Not even church as we know it!
They are not allowed to visit their friends or even their grandparents.
No shopping, trips to the beach, walks in the park. As we all know
this is all because of the Coronavirus.
Because of the magnitude of this Corona Crisis we have adapted
our 'Natural Disaster' Heal a Hurting Heart programme to assist
parents, family members, school staff, youth Pastors, Sunday school
teachers and other trusted adults who can play an important role
in helping children make sense of what they hear in a way that is
honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear.
Using God's Biblical principles and following the life of Joseph
and all that he went thought to assist the child to cope with the
stress associated with situation. Using the arts and drama to help
the children living through what has become to many a nightmare.
This Portuguese version has now been adapted and is being translated
into Swahili, Chichewa, Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, Dutch,
Italian and English.

Each of the three Deliverance Sessions are accompanied by a Deliverance
Training PowerPoint for the Teachers and Youth Pastors, including
Handouts and Warfare Prayers for the youth or older children. Deliverance
teaching has been adapted from Warfare
These three weeks can be omitted if the church or organization
does not want to embark on Deliverance, or the children are very
young and may not be able to grasp this teaching. If this is the
case Lesson #8, the Children's Evangelism Lesson, leads onto Lesson
#9'New life in Christ', which can then be followed by Lesson #12
the 'Forgiveness' teaching.
