We are Jon, Adie, Jaeden, Levi and Jace Leedahl. Jon is a helicopter and airplane pilot and we've been serving with New Tribes Mission Aviation in Papua New Guinea since March 2014. After a life-changing accident at the age of 12, Jon asked God to show Jon what to do with his life. At fifteen years old, Jon received his first introductory flight in an airplane and dedicated his new-found piloting skill to God. Adie grew up in a Christian home in Honolulu, Hawaii. She loves photography, flower arranging, and event planning.
