CHILD TRAUMA SEMINAR DAYS BEFORE TYPHOON HAIYAN DESTRUCTION PREPARES CHRISTIANS

CHILD TRAUMA CARE TRAINING IN THE PHILIPPINES

OperationSAFE & Philippine Children’s Ministries Network After a disaster, some perform rescue operations, others open shelters, deliver food, clear rubble and help rebuild. We train workers to provide psychosocial care for children who have been through trauma. This emotional and spiritual care is vital to allow children to restart their lives as children once again.

God orders things ahead of time, His timing is perfect, never late, never ahead. Two days ahead of Typhoon Yolanda we concluded a 4-day training on Operation Safe. We are ready to put our skills on board for children affected by the typhoon. Go servants of God! The time has come to action!

CHILD TRAUMA TEAMS TRAINED IN THREE PROVINCES IN THE PHILIPPINES

CRASH Japan Director Jonathan Wilson traveled in November to three islands in the Philippines to conduct OperationSAFE child trauma trainings for local churches and organizations. The trip expanded the successful work of the first year after Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan internationally) further on the island of Samar and to new areas in Leyte and Cebu.

OperationSAFE trains people from the local community in emotional first-aid for children. The intervention builds up the entire community by not only instilling trauma resiliency principles in children but also in youth, teachers and caregivers who will continue to be there for the children long after outside help has left.

God’s Plan is Big and Wonderful in Tohoku

Let’s praise the name of the Lord. I truly appreciate those who have been praying and supporting Tohoku. We feel the fresh autumn air and all the mountains are turning to beautiful autumn color here in Sendai.

    It has been 2 years and 8 months since the Great East Japan Earthquake and here in Tohoku there are differences in the pace of recovery in various areas. People are struggling with frustration that they can’t see the future, and they also often share the fear that even though they found a place to live, they need to prepare a large sum of money for moving out of temporary housing into regular housing. I know one person who couldn’t sleep well and couldn’t focus while he was driving and nearly caused a car accident. Also there are people who are finally beginning to open their hearts and start to share their distress and experiences after 2 years and 8 months. We feel it’s important for them to have a safe place to open their hearts. And moreover, believer’s testimony and Gospel are reaching those who never ever heard about Gospel before the earthquake. Recently the concert by Ron Brown was held at several locations in Tohoku and we could praise the Lord and sing together with a lot of people. After the concert people gladly said, “It was great and believing something gave us great strength! Christians are amazing.” I always saw and felt that after the meeting, people’s faces were full of smiles and they looked very satisfied. I’m sure that it is because God is with us and He is working among us. God loves the people in Tohoku and also loves the people who volunteer and always gives grace to them. I’m always amazed by God great huge plan and wonderfulness. I have great expectations of what God will do in this disaster area.

    Please continue to pray and support the disaster survivors.

50%から60%の屋根が台風被害を受け、ブルーシートなどでの応急処置が施されていましたが、まだ手付かずの家も散見し、高齢者の方々は、後片付けに助け手が必要な状況でした。

昨日 支援に伺った上総湊の報告
 
 上総湊はほぼ水は復旧しましたが、電気は20日以降みたいです。アン宣教師と教会のある地域は自治会の発電機を使い、充電器ステーションを作っています。

 ここ富津市は、今日から社協でボランティア受け入れを始めましたが、その前から雨に備えて地元のボランティアでブルーシート張りが進めたみたいです。

 現在の地元の動きは、店が開いていないので、炊き出しや物資を高齢者に運ぶボランティアが中心みたいです。
