A Story of God’s provision

$5,000-$10,000. That’s all we asked for on that Sunday morning after Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines, leaving a swath of utter chaos and destruction from the east coast all the way to the islands on the western edge of Philippine territory. Enough to do a few survey flights and fly NTMA’s helicopter down from it’s home base to ...

Not Helpless- A Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda Update

Posted by:

As pictures and reports started pouring in from the internet & from co-workers, we sat stunned & felt completely overwhelmed. In a few short hours, “just another typhoon” had gone to a very close-to-home, massive tragedy.

We had been preparing for this typhoon just like we had others, getting the word out, making sure people had what they needed to weather through. We’d all made it through many storms. This ...

Triumph and Tragedy

Posted by:

How do you weep with those who weep and laugh with those who laugh, all at the same time? A couple of weeks ago, we sat in our living room rejoicing as some of our friends shared how the gospel has been received in their village – at times nearly 100 people attending on this tiny island, brand new believers writing worship songs in their own language, new believers already desperate to share what Christ has done in their ...

The heart of man plans his way, 

but the Lord establishes his steps – Proverbs 16:9

 

When my phone rings, I never know what to expect. One aspect of being a missionary pilot that I never considered before becoming one, is that we are on call 24/7. For most of our missionaries we are truly their lifeline to the outside world, and that includes emergency services. While I have become used to these phone calls, texts, and ...

A Whirlwind Re-entry

Posted by:

When we stepped off of the plane in Manila on March 27th, we knew we would be making a fast re-entry into Philippine language and culture, as well as our ministry. I don’t think we realized quite how intense that transition would be, though! We were settled back into our house and flying again almost before the jet-lag wore off. It has been so good to ...

Worth It All!

Posted by:

One of the hardest things we have ever done was saying goodbye to our friends and family and moving to another country on the other side of the world. As we struggled to learn how to relate to a new culture and a new language, we sometimes wondered: “Is it really worth it?”

Life as a missionary is not always the glamorous, exciting adventure that is often portrayed. Mostly it is ...
