Saturday, November 15, in Sanford, Florida, the celebration language was Portuguese! NTM Aviation’s Cessna 206 bound for Brazil stood on display, shining and ready, just days away from its flight to Brazil.
For six years, your prayers and support have kept the vision alive — that God would open the way for this plane to fly missionaries, supplies, language consultants, and medical flights in the isolated Acre region of Brazil. Now, that dream is just days away from reality!
Friday 22, NTM Aviation pilot Charlie Patton, with his hard-won Brazilian pilot’s license in hand, began the flight down to Brazil with the plane. Milton Arantes, Brazilian pilot, businessman, and key player in the importation process, is accompanying him.
Many of you have stood with us in this journey that has seemed to have more obstacles than forward motion. Keep praying, because the importation process could have its own share of obstacles! Please also uphold mechanic specialist Joel Rich as he gets everything ready for the plane to be housed and maintained in western Brazil.
Soon, the celebration will not just be in Portuguese and English but in languages of tribes still waiting for the light of Christ to penetrate their darkness. Thank you for your part in bringing the Light to the tribes of Brazil.
