In September we emailed out a special AIM AIR update, but apparently not many people received it. You can read that update on our Newsletter page. When Covid hit, Abigail’s jewelry business took a sudden nosedive. With 5 grandchildren to raise alone, she was the first friend I felt led to help financially.

5 years in Kenya!
Hands down, the reason we stay is people!
EJ Flies a Plane!
On March 1 – before Covid-19 took over headlines – I accompanied Pilot Lindsey on an AIM AIR flight to western Kenya to pick up a short term missions group. Beautiful valleys and villages soared beneath us as we skirted storm clouds. After getting our 5 passengers situated, I settled in the co-pilot seat, readyContinue reading “EJ Flies a Plane!”
The Gospel, Guests, and a new Graduate
AIM AIR NEWS 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 haveContinue reading “The Gospel, Guests, and a new Graduate”
Tests, tests and more tests!
A glimpse into Phil’s world: Nose in the books! That’s been Phil’s mantra for the last 6 months or so, and it doesn’t appear to be lightening up anytime soon. After receiving his Inspection Authorization last December in the States, he needed to renew that certificate in March (FAA rules). Fortunately, by performing an annual inspectionContinue reading “Tests, tests and more tests!”

Just the Beginning
A highlight of our time in the U.S. has been our three older boys getting their driver’s licenses. All the anticipation, preparation, instruction; all the practicing, learning, and testing – they did it! And yet, they are only just beginning their journey as drivers. They continue to build experience as they drive. We realize thatContinue reading “Just the Beginning”
Celebrating 3 years in Kenya!
Three years! July 9 marked the day we left U.S. soil 3 years ago for Nairobi, Kenya. At the time we didn’t know how we would fit into the AIM AIR family of missionaries or what to expect. We just knew that God had called us into aviation ministry and that we were willing toContinue reading “Celebrating 3 years in Kenya!”
Leaving Well – Home Assignment 2018
It’s time for our first Home Assignment! (Furlough) Our thoughts have been quite reflective as we think about the last 3 years. Two recent experiences stick out. 1. The other day I (EJ) was driving (which is still stressful, but not as much as before) to our homeschool co-op, and this thought crossed my mind.Continue reading “Leaving Well – Home Assignment 2018”
Airplanes, leadership and college choices
The past year gave Phil and the AIM AIR maintenance crew plenty of experience with engine changes – 7 of them to be exact! As part of being Assistant Quality Manager for the maintenance department, Phil recently completed a week long course called Quality Management Systems. Paperwork is a necessity in aircraft maintenance. Phil oftenContinue reading “Airplanes, leadership and college choices”
