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.

DVD released

My have we been busy and BLESSED.  6 Volunteers, 2 families and 2 singles have arrived to work out at the school in Paruima for this school year!! We have been getting them oriented and ready to hit the ground running out there. I am in the process of flying them and their stuff out now. Volunteers are arriving for the other schools as well so we are grateful and when I go into villages the question is "are the teachers here yet and when do classes start". 

 Kimbia has accepted a record number already.  Volunteers are coming from around the world and from around N. America.  It is so neat to see how God brings them all together here in Guyana.
While flying in the teachers and their stuff I have been bringing medivacs out on the return trips. Last week I flew in 2 doctors, 1 dentist, 1 nurse into a remote village with a very short strip, could only take 2 at a time in. Left them there 24 hours due to weather delays (God sent). While there they treated over 60 patients and did extractions on 25 others. Then they found a women with severe internal bleeding, post-partum so I flew her out directly to Georgetown.
Today I flew out a man with a cockroach in his ear!  The little plane has flown over 60 hrs already this month and have at least 4-5 hours scheduled for tomorrow yet!
