NAB pastors and churches have decades of relationship with leaders in Romania, but it was in 2014 that NAB formalized a ministry agreement to aid the Hungarian Baptist Conference of Romania in the development of Camp Falcon Rock.

David & Aleece Cooper
ABWE Canada’s missionary family

Our goal is to help fulfill the Great Commission by serving in Peru through crisis pregnancy ministry and biblical education in order to multiply churches, leaders, and missions movements for Christ.

Aleece will be focusing her efforts on serving at the Vida Nueva Prenatal Centers in Peru. They have been a vital outreach to nationals, ministering to both physical and spiritual needs. Hundreds of ladies have been cared for and had the hope of salvation shared with them through this ministry.

Dave will be joining the faculty of Baptist Theological Seminary, Lima to teach the Word of God. Concentrating on the Old Testament and Hebrew, Dave will be training men and women to accurately interpret and effectively communicate God's Word.

Through this two-fold emphasis it is our prayer that God would use us to build up His church in Peru, inspiring Peruvians to be missionaries to their own countrymen and to those without Christ around the world.
