Thanks Charlie!!

Crisis Care Chaplain

Crisis Care Chaplain, Charlie Benton

Chaplain Charlie Benton, of Virginia Baptist Disaster Relief,  was able to join us in Baguio to work in providing crisis care intervention for those who suffered with the ravages of Typhoon Pepeng, which left hundreds dead, and thousands with destroyed or damaged homes. He also did training with our team and other groups so that we can provide effective crisis care in the future.   The following is an abridged list of the activities that we did together.
