Bible-based Trauma Healing programs from the Trauma Healing Institute equip local churches to care for people with deep emotional and spiritual injuries caused by war, domestic violence or natural disasters. They combine biblical and mental health resources into an effective intervention that fosters healing and restores relationships with God and others.

The core programs are based on a workbook, Healing the Wounds of Trauma: How the Church Can HelpStory-based Trauma Healing adapts this proven approach in an oral program for people with high trauma but low literacy—including those who speak minority languages with no written form or Scriptures. It is designed for high flexibility and rapid deployment by church leaders and laypeople.

SIL International

Partners in Language Development

SIL International is a faith-based nonprofit organization committed to serving language communities worldwide as they build capacity for sustainable language development. SIL does this primarily through research, translation, training and materials development. SIL works alongside ethnolinguistic communities and their partners as they discover how language development addresses the challenging areas of their daily lives—social, cultural, political, economic and spiritual. SIL's service with ethnolinguistic minority communities is motivated by the belief that all people are created in the image of God, and that languages and cultures are part of the richness of God's creation.

Founded in 1934, SIL (originally known as the Summer Institute of Linguistics, Inc.) has grown from a small summer linguistics training program with two students to a staff of over 4,400 coming from over 86 countries. SIL's linguistic investigation exceeds 2,167 languages in over 100 countries. The organization makes its services available to all, without regard to religious belief, political ideology, gender, race or ethnolinguistic background.
