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.

God is working!

Greetings from PNG
This last weekend we were informed that a shipping company has agreed to ship our airplane from Arizona to Guam, free of charge!!  We will assemble it there and then fly it the rest of the way to PNG, about 2 days worth. That means we could have the plane here by the end of March if God works that out.  Our container with the hanger and airbase supplies is also on its way and should arrive in country about the end of March. Then it will have to be sent up here to Vanimo and then to the airbase!
This morning we met with the leader of the opposition party here, he is a member of Parliament  and represents the area here and is from Bewani!!
He is very excited we are here and said he is behind our project 100%.  He said he will help us any way he can. He said he will see to it there is no custom fee for the plane.  He is also getting phone service to the area of the airbase hopefully before the plane arrives.  He wants to broadcast the planes arrival in Vanimo on National TV.   He offered many other things, but will see how it all works out in God's time and way.  It is nice to have political support for the project and he is a church member.
Just wanted to share the good news and thank those of you who have been praying for this project and supporting it.  Things are moving forward! God is answering prayers and blessing the donations.
