The Wagner's have been serving in Romania since November 2016 specifically working hands on at the camp as we continue to develop the facility. They first visited Romania on Central’s Baptist’s trip last April, which ran VBS programs as well as completed a building project at the camp. They weren’t completely sure of why they needed to join the trip but felt God’s prompting and obeyed. Their skills were put to good use on that team as Vern helped with major renovations at the camp and Gloria assisted with the VBS programs. During their time they felt an incredible connection with the people and ministry. Upon returning to Canada they could not get Romania out of their minds and hearts. We too felt our eyes open to a greater vision when we heard this and thus began our conversations of ways to partner with them.
This is truly another story of God’s faithfulness. Vern and Gloria are huge assets to our team for this purpose. The Wagners worked at Camp Caroline in Alberta a part of the Alberta Baptist Association for 10 years. Vern worked as head of maintenance and Gloria assisted with the kitchen and cleaning operations. They have incredible skills and wisdom in developing, maintaining and running a camp facility as well as a heart to see local workers trained and empowered.
The Wagner’s have beautiful servant hearts to see God’s Kingdom advanced in Romania and specifically through camp ministry. They are skilled, wise and yet humble. They have been an excellent addition to our team! As we have stepped into major development at the camp, the Wagners have been invaluable to the progress. They moved up to live at Camp Falcon Rock full time Spring of 2019.
