Ernie and Hedi Tanner celebrated their 90th birthdays last year! Looking back, Ernie, as a pioneer and founder of Helimission, recalled with gratitude how he was safely and wonderfully guided through countless dangerous situations. He often found himself in life threatening situations. He has a treasure chest full of experiences and can tell lots of amazing stories.
His motto is: Go and help! As Helimission, we go to people who are in need e.g. because of a natural disaster. In the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 25 verse 35, Jesus says, “For I was hungry, and you gave me food, I was thirsty, and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” This
motto has influenced Ernie Tanner his whole life, till today. Whoever thinks that he has retired is mistaken! Ernie and Hedi Tanner are still in service for Helimission. They travel to various events and locations, introduce people to Helimission, show Helimission documentary films, narrate from their treasure chest full of experiences and encourage the listeners.
