The Gospel, Guests, and a new Graduate

A group gathers to listen to an audio Bible.


A delegate from World Mission, a mission group we fly for, recently visited the AIM AIR hangar and encouraged us with how AIM AIR is helping  transport solar powered audio Bibles to the unreached people groups.  These devices are bringing Hope and Light to unlikely places!  Some of these audio Bibles have found their way into refugee camps in northern Kenya.  There are now small pockets of believers meeting on a regular basis.  It’s an honor and privilege to serve beside so many people committed to sharing the Gospel of Christ.


The entrance to AIM AIR

Interns at the AIM AIR hangar seem to come in waves.  Some of these young people are new graduates, completing class assignments, or seeking God’s will for their lives in aviation ministry (or all of the above!).  A few come from Kenyan schools for a 2-3 week job shadow experience.  Phil’s capacity to multi-task has been stretched as he delegates jobs, doles out aviation advice and double checks their work.


Recently, we hosted 5 friends from Spokane, WA.  Some of the college girls whom EJ mentors joined us for lunch after church.   Americans and Kenyans at a Chinese place in big city Nairobi—it doesn’t get any sweeter!

We drove as far as we could, then hiked down a muddy hill to the children’s home.

Memorable experiences with our guests included visiting baby centers, buying food for fire victims (see below), ministering to missionary women, praying with people, making friends, and slogging through mud to get to a children’s home outside Nairobi.

A devastating fire in the Kibera slum near our house prompted a few of us ladies to collect clothing, food and other supplies.  Our friend Gaz served as liaison between us and the families in most need.  It meant a great deal to him that our friends from the U.S. would provide and pray for the Kibera residents.

Michael graduated from Eagles Wings Academy in May, 2019!  He starts classes this fall at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau, WI, studying Mechanical Design Engineering Technology.

We’ll be back on U.S. soil Aug 5-Sept 30 to get  him settled and touch base with our other two sons, Andrew and Benji.

To celebrate, we’re hosting an Open House on Sunday, Aug 11, from 2-6pm in the Youth Chapel (upstairs room) at Waupaca 1st Assembly Church, 1420  Berlin Street, Waupaca, WI.
