This Sunday, May 28, is the Canadian Day of Prayer for Camps. With churches in both Canada and the US, the NAB finds great joy in being bi-national. When one country celebrates, both do. So in that spirit, let us all pray for the twelve NAB camps spread across both countries. (You can find the full list here.)
One NAB-affiliated camp in having a particularly noteworthy year. In a little over two weeks, Camp Caroline, located in central Alberta, will be celebrating it’s 50th anniversary! On June 10, they will be hosting an open house that will entail lunch and supper, fun activities, and a celebration of their half-century of ministry helping to form and elevate leaders of all ages.
You can find out more about the celebration at the link below.
Bob Krahn, the regional minister for the British Columbia Baptist Association, will be retiring at the end of July. He wrote the following about this decision:
After completing 50 years of ministry and the most amazing 18 and a half years of my life as the RM for the BCBA, I will retire from my position on July 31, 2023. In January of 2023, Dawn and I were able to take a month off to reflect on our past and present ministry and to pray about our future. During that time, God gave both of us the calm assurance that this was the right time to draw our present ministry to a close. The NAB is forever in our hearts, and we intend to stay connected and pray for our Conference.
Before taking the role of RM, the Reverend Dr. Robert Krahn held a diverse collection of jobs, including an underground miner, a heavy equipment operator, a big game guide, and a plumber’s helper. He and Dawn have been married for fifty years this November.
