Before we give any more details, will you stop and pray that the Lord would move in the hearts of pilots, mechanics and other aviation-minded folks to come serve the Lord in PNG?
Okay, now on to the details. Papua New Guinea is a country about the size of California with over 800 different language groups. Because of the rugged terrain, many of these people groups are very isolated and the only way for missionaries to effectively reach them is by helicopter or small airplane. The tribal people here who are still unreached with the Gospel are hard to reach because they are in hard-to-reach places!! Because of the ministry of New Tribes Aviation, what would take days of hiking to reach a tribe can be accomplished in a few hours or less. These missionaries are truly a blessing to so many and they are vitally important to the continued spread of the Gospel here in Papua New Guinea.
But, they need help!!!!!! Right now the need for pilots and mechanics is critical. For more information, please follow this link – New Tribes Mission Aviation.
Would you please join us in praying for more laborers? Besides pilots and mechanics there are needs for teachers, church planters, supply buyers, builders, dentists, doctors, nurses, business managers and the list could go on – all are needed to help in the task of reaching tribal people who are still lost in their sin and without hope apart from Christ. If you know anyone who might be interested in serving the Lord here, even for a year or two, would you please share these needs with them? Link to PNG Needs List
Here are a few photos from a recent trip we took – flying over a part of PNG where we had never been.
