I volunteer with a ministry team in a local detention center. Having recently taken Entrust’s Facilitating Relational Learning (FRL), I applied what I’d learned to a study I lead. One week, some amazing things happened. My launch exercise went really well. The women responded well to my open-ended questions. They were engaged and interacting throughout. As I was sharing the gospel to close our time together, the deputy arrived to pick up one of the inmates. As the inmate headed out, she said, “Before I go, I want what you’re talking about.” I got permission from the deputy for her to stay a few minutes longer. He agreed, and as he waited outside the locked door, this inmate professed Christ as her Savior! We all prayed for her and welcomed her into the kingdom. – Michele B., FRL participant

Entrust’s flagship training module, Facilitating Relational Learning, helps participants learn the art of writing and asking open-ended questions; an art simple in theory, complex in practice, rich in results when grounded in scripture and soaked in prayer.
Pray this weekend (Jan. 19-21) as Entrust’s Mark and Kim Huffman provide follow-up training for staff and volunteers at Cedar Valley Church, Bloomington, Minn., on developing excellent questions for small group usage.
Amidst Dr. Seussian sculpted trees, elephant fountains, orchid gardens and rich Thai hospitality, 20 women representing 12 nations came together for 10 days of rest, worship and lack of rest. Say what? While the setting was exquisitely peaceful, the ladies worked hard. It was an intensive women’s ministry training offered by Entrust partner Equipping Women International.
The women, each in full-time ministry, completed at least 50 hours of pre-study prior to coming to Thailand, then spent another 50 hours of classroom time, some in Facilitating Relational Learning, some in Developing a Discerning Heart and some in Discovery Bible Study. “God truly was in the middle of us,” reflects coordinator Debbie Lamp, “working his good into every one of our lives.”
