Paul is an aircraft mechanic (“aircraft engineer” on this side of the world) with New Tribes Mission Aviation. The fleet of aircraft that we maintain includes three Kodiak airplanes and a Bell Long Ranger helicopter.
Papua New Guinea is a very rugged country with dense rain forest covering most of the land. What can take days to hike on foot and/or travel by canoe, will only take minutes by air. With numerous missionary teams located out in various tribes around the four regions of PNG, our aircraft are a welcome sight and sound to our bush missionaries.
Paul thoroughly enjoys the skills that the Lord has provided. Helping keep this fleet of aircraft flying safely is a joy, especially when we here the reports of new believers from our team mates out in the bush locations.
Andrea works as a stay-at-home-mom and prays every day for enough energy to keep after two toddlers! Phoebe (7) and Joshua (5) are loving living in Papua New Guinea but they sure do miss their grandparents!
