Interesting Facts: O sits in a mountain valley with a restricted view of the runway from the downwind-to-base turn. It’s also built in a river bend, so extending the length is impossible.
Mission work in O includes church planting, discipleship, leading a government-sponsored primary school, and encouraging use of the newly translated New Testament. The missionaries are totally dependent on the airplane for all supplies.
Time Saved: The flight from base to the O area takes one hour and fifty minutes. The time saved is very difficult to determine. Overland access is essentially impossible because of the rugged terrain, proximity to Brazil’s borders with other countries, and the great distance from the closest road. Boat travel is possible for certain stretches of the river, but waterfalls of up to 50m make it difficult-to-impossible to proceed at certain points. The airplane is essential!
