CRASH Japan volunteer team to Joso city on November 24.
They opened mobile cafe and invited survivors from a local village (Misaka-Shinden) in Joso city. They provided emotional and spiritual care to the survivors through active listening and special sweet (Oshiruko).
This is a flyer for the upcoming Chaplains’ Cafe on November 6th. The facilitator for this meeting will be Rev. John Houlette who will lead us in a discussion about “Resilience based on Relationship”
Chaplains’ Cafe is designed as a safe learning space for anyone who is interested in providing emotional and spiritual care.
CRASH Japan has supported Chaplains’ Cafe since its beginning. We understand this ministry is key for Disaster Relief work.
Dear CRASH Prayer Partners and Supporters
Thank you again for your prayers and financial supports. CRASH Japan sent a volunteer team to the biggest shelter in Joso city today. There were about 200 people who evacuated from the flood. Today we served 100 crepes and hot coffees and teas to the survivors. We also offered footbath and hand massage.
They sat and enjoyed conversations with CRASH Japan’s emotional caregivers. Most of them were the older people. Some younger and small children were among them. They told us the stories how they survived through the flood in September. They also told us that they struggled with facing difficult realities.
We served them though active listening and provided emotional care. Please keep praying for and support CRASH Japan as we continue to serve the survivors.
