CRASH Japan’s volunteer team worked as emotional and spiritual caregivers in Joso city.
Many people there, both survivors and relief workers, look tired, even exhausted. As we served coffees, cookies, cakes, and crepes, they were reminded that they needed to take a break.
Our emotional care coordinator Helen Kwak brought her dog Chappy – she listened to survivors while Chappy brought some smiles to faces in his own way.
CRASH Japan is working with Salvation Army and DRC Net on a training program for emotional and spiritual caregivers and disaster response chaplains. In the US this type of cooperation between groups might be normal, but in Japan it is historic!
Please keep praying for Japanese Christians and CRASH Japan. Our dream is that emotional and spiritual care might become one of the significant missions of Japanese Christian churches.
