GLC Program History

This program began in 1999 when Karen Eubank was on a relief mission with FBR teams to villages frequent- ly attacked by the Burma Army. The children here were very shy and fearful and she envisioned a program that would give spiritual encouragement of faith, hope, and love through songs, games, crafts and stories; as modern medical care is infrequently available, the program also grew to include preventative health- care education. The GLC program is included in FBR Leadership and Relief Team trainings followed by a 1-2 month ‘School Tour’ to visit school children in rural IDP communities; the newly-trained counselors help lead this tour and thus have a chance to practice what they have learned with their instructors present. They are the one person on their respective FBR teams whose duty is to minister to the needs of the children the team meets as it goes on missions throughout the year.
