From July 26-29, the North American Baptist Conference of Churches (NAB) held their Triennial in Edmonton, Alberta. Our BC Executive Minister, Bob Krahn, and his wife Dawn, loaded up their truck and brought medical supplies, donated by our BC Churches, to be included in a shipment to two hospitals in Cameroon. This is one of the projects that the NAB is involved with; working with White Cross to send medical supplies internationally. There were lots of familiar faces at Triennial and the sessions and times of fellowship were a blessing and encouragement to all who attended.
During the spring and summer Bob had the opportunity to visit several different churches and pastors in our BC Association. He celebrated Canada Day at Sunshine Ridge Baptist Church in Surrey, visited with Phil Johnson at Osoyoos Baptist Church where they serve a Saturday meal to over eight hundred migrant workers during the summer, and ran across the border to visit with Mark Fast at New Hope Bible Fellowship in Oroville, Washington.
God is so good and we praise Him for his many blessings including Andre Deepwell’s 40th Wedding Anniversary, Andy Dietrich’s 25 years at Grace Baptist in Kelowna, Chilliwack’s (MidTown Church) new building, and Trinity Kelowna’s building extension.
