The manual used during training is dedicated to the women (and men and families) we serve and opens with these verses: "This is the ministry which God in His mercy has given us and nothing can daunt us. We have set our faces against all shameful, secret practices; we use no clever tricks, no dishonest manipulation of the Word of God. We speak the plain truth and so commend ourselves to every person’s conscience in the sight of God...For it is Christ Jesus as Lord whom we preach, not ourselves; we are your servants for Jesus’ sake."II Corinthians 4:1, 2, 5 (JBP)
