Paul is an aircraft mechanic (“aircraft engineer” on this side of the world) with Ethnos360 Aviation. The fleet of aircraft that we maintain includes three Kodiak airplanes and a Bell Long Ranger helicopter. Soon we will be adding a different type of helicopter to our fleet — the Robinson R66 helicopters!
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 part-time in our mission’s school teaching biology and chemistry. Phoebe (10) and Joshua (8) are loving living in Papua New Guinea but they sure do miss their grandparents!
