This award and the honor of receiving it goes to all our founders; current and former Executive Directors, Board of Directors, staffs, donors, supporters and volunteers who have contributed to CREST in the past 20 years. Without your support, hard work and contributions, CREST would not have gone this far.

1 Thanksgiving...

Up to this September, CREST has conducted 17 trainings across 4 countries: Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines and China. Due to our limited capacity in human resource and time, we are not able to accept many more requests for training.

We thank our partners who had hosted and worked hand in hand with us in crisis relief mission. We also thank individuals, organizations and churches who have funded our office operations.

In the month of August, CREST deployed teams to Philippines for post Haiyan development project and Laos flood relief. In September, we deployed a team to Lombok for post earthquake recovery. And following in the month of October, teams will be deployed to Palu, (North Sulawesi Earthquake & Tsunami), Myanmar (post Cyclone Nargis) and Laos (post flood).

We give thanks to our Almighty God, and CREST continues to seek for your continuous prayer support in the coming months. We have a busy schedule and expect ‘unexpected events’ ahead of us.

1. Message from Executive Director.

May 2018, is a remarkable month for all Malaysians. After the 61 years ruling under the same government, Malaysia is starting a new chapter under the elected government. Personally, I have witnessed the power of one vote and the desire of Malaysian returned home to cast this vote.

2 days after the general election, I have travelled to Singapore to conduct a 1 day disaster preparedness training in partnership with Touch International. Alongside with my trip, many of our friends in Singapore asked me about the election result and they are really impressed with what the Malaysians have done. I give thanks to the Lord for He has granted peace to us despite of changing government and to all Malaysians, you have made this country proud again!

1. Message from Executive Director.

We give thanks to God, our Provider. I recall the first time I brought my wife to CREST office and her first impression was it was like a disaster zone. A regular double story link house that serves as administration office, staff hostel and machine repair.

Our prayers for a new and affordable office have been answered. Soon we will move into a double story corner house in Bandar Botanic in Klang, offered by a generous volunteer.

We will send out our relocation notice soon. Continue to pray with us for God to provide volunteers, transportation and financial support to carry out this operation.
