Greetings (again) from southeastern Arizona. We can hardly believe that we have almost been here at the Ethnos360 Aviation home office/training center for 2 months. But things are moving forward and we wanted to keep you informed and ask for your prayers for the next several weeks.
- Paul was able to finish his first Robinson helicopter engine course here at our Ethnos360 Aviation!
- Paul’s second class for the airframe, taught by Robinson helicopter factory in CA starts this coming Monday!! (After being cancelled the 2 previous times). We are excited that he is able to get this new training and also very excited how the Lord provided for this class and the travel expenses. We thank the Lord for those of you who have given!!
- Phoebe and Josh have made some new friends here at McNeal and even enjoyed going to AWANA for the first time in many years.
- We thank the Lord for our health.
- Paul will be in California for just under 2 weeks. Pray that his time there will be profitable. Pray for Andrea and the kids as they remain in Arizona and continue to homeschool.
- Paul’s mother, Lavon, has been dealing with severe back pain. Pray she can find some relief as it has been pretty debilitating and going on 2 months now.
- We are now working on our flights back to PNG. Normally this is a pretty complicated endeavor (usually 4-5 flights, thousands of dollars and packing for the next few years) but you now add in the COVID restrictions and it really gets interesting. With the help of our co-workers in PNG, we are beginning to navigate the paperwork and the possibility of being able to head back in early April.
- Check out this video that explains why the helicopter program is so important for the spreading of the Gospel in Papua New Guinea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5WbGye-0Qo
- The Lord has already provided one (of 3) needed R-66 helicopters for PNG. Want to learn more? Head on over to : https://ethnos360aviation.org/projects/helicopters-for-png
And if you made it this far in this “quick” update, then here are some pictures of the kids:
