New Tribes Mission Mexico has missionaries all over the mountains of northern Mexico. There are roads to all these tribal locations, but during times of emergency or convenience there are airstrips available for our missionary pilots. We partner with United Indian Mission (UIM) in the area of aviation. The UIM pilots are some people who encourage and bless those they minister to and their families are a huge support with flexibility and prayers. We have had the awesome privilege of flying with one UIM pilot, Michael, when we went to visit our friends Chris and Rachel out in their village for Thanksgiving.
I was also able to attend the Mission Ladies Retreat last spring because Michael stayed at the Guest House one extra night to fly me into Chihuahua.
Once in a while all the UIM pilots from all over, gather for meetings and to catch up as well as fellowship. This year they stayed at the Guest House. The house can sleep about 18 people (considering one person per bed). There were 19 guys so someone was on the floor! We were blessed to be a blessing to this great team of pilots and are very thankful for the vital role they play on our team.
