Paul and Tanya Gericke
“Even youths grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
The Gerickes have been serving at Central Baptist Church in Edmonton, AB, where Paul has been on staff in Worship Ministries. Over the past years, Paul has been a part of numerous short term mission trips to Romania, and has built a relationship with the pastors and leaders. God has sovereignly moved in his life to bring him and Tanya to this point of decision to become missionaries in this setting.
About ten years ago, some of our NAB churches and donors contributed toward the purchase of property with the vision of establishing a camp ministry. Now Paul and Tanya will go to develop facilities and to establish a camping ministry. The facility will also provide a setting conducive to leadership development, both by giving experience to emerging camp leaders, and by providing a setting to host formal training events.
Paul and Tanya arrived in Romania in November 2014. They are working alongside national pastors and missionaries to develop Camp Falcon Rock.
In the coming years, there will be many opportunities for NAB churches to join this family of ministry partnership in Romania. We will be raising funds for the construction of the camp facilities, sending work teams, camp counselors, and all manner of servants that will benefit from this kind of loving partnership. For today, let’s thank God for what HE is doing, and for the privilege we have to be participants and witnesses of His work in Romania.
