1 Basic Wilderness Search & Rescue Survival Camp, Raub.

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.
