On 16 April, The Pink Shoes (TPS) celebrated their 3rd year anniversary. CREST was invited to set up a booth and to introduce our ministry to TPS volunteers. We want to put on record our thanks to CREST staff and volunteers who had come to celebrate this remarkable event with TPS

CREST and Malaysian CARE have been meeting to share ideas, information and experiences in the area of disaster response. CREST looks forward to partnering with other agencies who share similar goals in serving the poor and needy in crisis.
Thank you, The Pink Shoes and Malaysian CARE for spending your precious time with CREST.
It has been a long time since CREST had conducted wilderness training. On 17-18 March, 15 participants pitched their own tents at the basic wilderness survival, search and rescue practice. We are grateful to you for your prayer covering and to God for our safety throughout the training.
Many lessons learnt in the classroom were put to practice. To the participants, I hope you will remember the lessons as well as the fun. To the facilitators, thank you so much for being such an awesome team in your service.
How have you been doing this far as the Executive Director of CREST? This question was asked by Lana Wong, who had served in the same position the 10 years before me. Her question left me speechless and my mind just went blank. I shook my head and answered that without God’s grace and mercy, I would never have been in this position to serve Him. Never, never and never…
In answering this simple question, I am counting my cost to follow Jesus. In fact, we are all doing the same thing, only in different ways. We shall not give up no matter what challenges and obstacles lie ahead of us. I give thanks to God for He has enabled and provided for us to serve the nations in Crisis.
As this New Year and Chinese New Year was being celebrated everywhere, CREST has been kept busy monitoring the weather for Kelantan and Johor. During both new year eves, we received alerts from our friends and CREST has sent aid to empower our partners in Kota Bharu and Segamat.
