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.

A few days left

There are only a few days left before our departure to Papua New Guinea. We are feverishly trying to finish packing the container for the airbase and our personal stuff.  We are also trying to tie up all the loose ends so we don't leave too many things for other people to do.
We don't know yet just how much access we will have to internet once we arrive, but will do our best to post updates, as we can.  
We have waited a long time for this to happen and now it is at our door step.  The Lord keeps providing affirmations that this is His plan for us and to keep moving forward.  We can't see very far down the path in front of us, but as we trust Him, He keeps opening the path before us a little at a time.  
We wish to thank all of you who kept encouraging us, praying for us and supporting us during this long wait.  Now things are moving rapidly and we will see what lies ahead. The good news is that we know Who knows the future and He has the problems already solved!  
Attached is a short video made by our friend Darah Varga.  Feel free to share it if you wish.  It is also posted on our Facebook site under Lewis Jungle Ministries.
