Time Flies!

As the saying goes “time flies when you are having fun” – that is how this past year has been for us. As of the end of November, we have been in Romania for one year. We can look back and see how faithful God has been. We are thankful for the work that has been done at the camp, the people and teams that have visited, the children/youth that heard about God’s love this past summer. We are so thankful to all of you that have prayed and supported us through all of this.

In November, the CFR team spent one week in Hungary at Lake Balaton for a time of fellowship growing in God’s word and prayer. It was great to relax and spend time together. It was energizing on many levels.

Work continues at the camp. The farmhouse has heating, plumbing, drywall on the ceiling, and the rendering is being done on the inside walls. We wait patiently for the permits to be in place so we can get to work on the water and sewage project. We pray God will allow us to complete this project and cabins this spring so that we can run camps this summer.

We spent Christmas with our family in Canada – it was great to have family time, share meals, and we even got to experience the -30C° again. Vern got to go ice fishing, and yes, he brought some home for supper!! We were encouraged as we shared about the work that is going on here in Romania with our home church in Clive and Central Baptist Church in Edmonton.

As good as it was to be home, we are glad to be back on the ground in Romania serving our Savior. We had our annual Camp Falcon Rock Christmas Dinner with the Board members and staff. It was so encouraging to see our team grow, and we are thankful for each of them as they help to build Camp Falcon Rock.

Please continue to pray for the permits and funding, also one of the CFR staff who is experiencing health issues.

We again thank you for your love, prayers, and support as we serve here; we couldn’t do it without you.
