Every June, JAARS Aviation Training takes new mission aviators to the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina to practice mountain operations. This training experience is a critical part of developing the skills necessary to take God’s Word to the remote and hard-to-reach places of the world. During Mountain Week, orientees and instructors land and take off from four different grass airstrips, each of which sharpens the pilots’ skills in unique ways:
I remember many flights on that beautiful hello - what a joy to see it again!!

Love this throw back. I was kid back then, but I was there. Those were the glory days! 😀
Reminds me of landing at Amanab in Papua New Guinea when Shirley and I were there starting in 1964.
Jeremiah loved serving the people of Brazil and connecting the mission workers, whether they were from other parts of Brazil or the West, to those who crave God’s love: “Being able to be that bridge to see these people that God has called to go and give their lives, to invest in these people, learn their language and their culture, becoming part of their village, and showing them the love of Christ. And then telling them the love of Christ. [I loved] being the bridge that gets [the mission workers] to where they can actually do that.” Read more here: www.jaars.org/blog/a-bridge-through-the-jungle/

God Bless the pilots for being the connectors 👏👏👏👏
At age 5 my son declared he would be a pilot when he grew up. While serving in Papua New Guinea one of his cargos was a load of newly printed New Testaments translated by a man who had been a student my husband and I had taught his first classes linguistics..
