our family is growing!

Well, I guess it’s time to let you know - our family is growing once again!

Mission family, that is. Friends, meet N9113M:


PRAISE THE LORD!!!

We are so thrilled to share that she’ll be joining us in Guyana as soon as she’s ready to go!

Getting her was a blessing in itself, but that was only phase 1. Phase 2 is about to begin.

Phase 2: This little beauty has a timed-out engine on her. That means, we’re now looking at an engine overhaul. She won’t need all the mods (pilot talk for modifications) that we would have needed on an older plane, it’s like she was made for jungle flying! So phase 2 is the maintenance phase. Captain Anderson has his work cut out for him, but here’s the best part - it’s not a plane sitting in pieces in boxes!

We are praising God for this blessing and we can’t wait to bring her home. Right now she’s sitting in Illinois. The paperwork should move along smoothly, and once we have the title Captain Anderson will go and start getting her airworthy. He’s got to spend about a week working on her before she can fly down. He’ll have to get a ferry permit to fly her down to Tennessee where the real work (engine overhaul) will begin.

To those who have been a part of helping with the purchase of her: THANK YOU!!! From the bottom of our hearts we are so filled with thankfulness that you were willing to sacrifice so that we can have this tool in Guyana to help spread the Good message of God’s great love. You are a part of this and we are grateful beyond words.

To those who would missed out on the blessing of being a part of the purchase - there’s still time to be a part of the blessing of getting her to Guyana! An engine overhaul is costly. Please consider helping with this cost. You can learn more about how to do that here.

Here is a short video I made in our last few months of flying in Guyana. I can’t wait to make another one sharing how N9113M is taking God’s Word even further into the jungles of Guyana.

Again, thank you all and stay tuned for more updates!
