Focusing on Emotional and Spiritual Care
Dear CRASH Prayer Partners and Supporters,
CRASH Japan will send Rev. Takahito Iwagami (Chaplain staff) and Helen Kwak (Care Coordinator) to the Tohoku East Japan Church Network Conference.
Takahito is going to speak about “Emotional and Spiritual Care and Self-Care”. Helen will lead a workshop entitled “Ministry of Presence and Compassion Fatigue: Heart, Soul, Mind, and Power”.
Even after 4 years since March 2011, the ministry of emotional and spiritual care has been getting more critical for the churches, pastors, and Christians in Tohoku who continue to serve the survivors. Please remember in your prayers that CRASH Japan continues to work for the survivors and care workers in Tohoku.
Please continue to help CRASH Japan spiritually and financially. Your donations will enables us to serve survivors, churches, and Christians in Japan.
Today, on Sep. 29 Tue, CRASH sent Rev. Takahito Iwagami (Chaplain program staff) and Mrs. Helen Kwak (Care coordinator) to Sendai Baptist Seminary where East Japan (Tohoku) church network conference was held.
Pastors and Christians from Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima, Ibaraki, and the other Tohoku areas came and learned “Emotional and Spiritual Care for Survivors” and “Self Care”. You can see in the photos how seriously they were learning and enjoying fellowship.
CRASH Japan keeps serving the Tohoku churches and Christians and hopes to provide long-term support.
After the disaster in 2011, CRASH worked with a baseball team from Tsukuba (Ibaraki prefecture) to bring equipment to a team in Onagawa (Miyagi prefecture) that lost everything in the tsunami. A year later, when a tornado hit Tsukuba, the team from Onagawa was able to help out and return the favor. See the touching story in this video.
