Mission Bush Pilot and Nurse

After spending three years in Guyana, South America, we have now moved to Bewani, 50 Km south of Vanimo, Papua New Guinea. We have started a new humanitarian aviation ministry here. In visiting with health officials and church people here, the need for an aviation program to reach into remote villages became very apparent. We are taking health workers and medicines/vaccines, into remote village airstrips and bringing out critically ill patients to the hospital. We also fly in educational materials for schools, as well as take in Bible workers. Toni is helping with the medical end of things, while Gary takes care of the flying part. We have several local lay missionaries we sponsor and we do ground transport for patients as well. We are volunteers here to serve our God and the unreached people of Papua New Guinea. We have a great need for more people to join in this effort.

Just a note to let you know what is happening from our view on this side of the world. I have been doing lots of flying. I did some on my own and then when David Gates returned this last weekend, we did several more flights. We hauled in some fuel to store at one of our schools in the interior.Then we will have it when we need it to get back to town, and not have to pay that $12.50/gal price.

We also worked on a large satellite dish that we are setting up in the depths of the jungle, so that we can down load our Christian TV station and then re-broadcast it to the local villages.This way, they can have some good TV to watch when the generators are operating. We already are doing it in a town near the Brazil border.
Gospel Ministries International is operating a T V network in Bolivia and via satellite is broadcasting to most of the Spanish speaking countries of South America. We also have a station in Spain and another in Brazil that broadcast in Portuguese. Just in the last few weeks and months the doors have been opening for us to get licenses and permits for stations in Europe and the Caribbean for us to broadcast in 9 languages with satellite coverage that will cover most of Africa, the Americas, and Europe and some into Asia by the end of this year. Governments that have not wanted us to broadcast, are now open to us coming and broadcasting. We have been told time and again that it won't or can't happen and now all of a sudden it is happening. We don't know where the funds will come from yet, but if God can open all of these doors, He can provide the means with which to do it. These stations are being operated and run by volunteers. I could give you a lot more details, but then this would become a very long story. God is working to get the message out that He is coming right away! Living outside of the USA we can see how the economy there is about to collapse. The dollar is not even accepted in some of these countries anymore because it is not trusted and worth so little.

We have been flying several medical emergencies out for medical attention and transporting people who are too old or have young babies to villages where they need to go. I will soon begin taking students to school so they don't have to hike days in the jungle (young students) to go to a Christian school. We are operating 3 schools in the country at present. We have requests to start 3 more right away, now that they have seen the kind of students coming out of our schools. We also expect to go from 1 pilot for the country to 3-4 pilots by the end of this year.

Time is short for the message of Christ coming and the doors are opening fast for a short time to give everyone, one last chance. The final reaping appears to be beginning. We have seen God's hand working in so many ways, it is humbling and yet exciting to see Him work.

Thank you again for your prayers and support. It means so much to us. If you would like to support this great opportunity in reaching the masses by media, note on your donation, "media"

May God bless you as we finish up the last days of earths history!
