1 Exhibitiion @ Kuching, Sarawak.

2017-08-News001 2017-08-News002

CREST was in Kuching, Sarawak from 16th to 19th of August. The National Economic Empowerment Coalition (NEEC) Conference is an annual event held at different locations throughout Malaysia aimed at providing a platform for various community development organizations to promote and share practical ways to improve the lives of indigenous communities all over Malaysia.

A booth was setup to promote the nature of work that CREST is involved in. The booth managed to generate awareness and interest among the participants of the conference especially in regards to the various tailor-made trainings that CREST has to offer. Many see this as a potential possibility and way of empowering local communities to be more self-sustaining as well as an opportunity to fill in the gaps where there are needs in disaster response.

2 Upcoming Events & Prayer Requests.

2.1 Basic Disaster Response Camp, MBS, Kundang (14-17 September 2017).

A total of 22 participants signed up for this camp, majority from overseas. 4 from Singapore, 5 from Philippines, 3 from Sri Lanka and 2 from Pakistan.

Kindly pray for their visa applications (Pakistan) and safe travel to Malaysia. May this camp empower more of God’s army serving in disaster zone for the nations.

2.2 2018 Fund Raising Event for CREST.

We are looking for volunteers to help out in our 20th Anniversary Fund Raising Event next year. Please pray together with us for the Lord’s direction. May He provide the wisdom, manpower and resources that are needed.

In Him We Serve,
CK Cheong
Executive Director
