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.

Some of the other things we did this week. Not just flying, but cleaning too. More medivacs, and taking in supplies. Note narrow airstrip
Have a great sabbath.

Today's medivacs

Todays medivacs. One lady was having delivery problems, by the time we got to her she had just delivered a stillborn so we flew her into the hospital here in town, leaving the baby behind to be buried tomorrow, Next to her in the back seat was another mom with a day old baby that wasnt doing well either. Sad world we live in, nice to be able to help some.
