A quick flight can save days of hiking.
Bible translation takes people to the world’s most remote places—rainforests, mountains, deserts, and islands. A flight can shave off days of tough driving, hiking, or canoeing. And sometimes, it’s the only safe way to get there.
How JAARS Fits In
We’ve been in mission aviation for over 60 years. We help our partners start and run flight programs—by training and sending staff, setting standards, equipping aircraft, doing on-the-ground research, and more. Currently, we help programs in Australia, Brazil, Cameroon, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Peru, and Tanzania.
How You Can Help
“Transporting and caring for the logistics of people doing Bible translation work is the core of what [my wife] Shirl and I do here in Australia. Between Shirl assisting with a myriad of administrative details and me looking after the safe operation of the airplane, there is rarely a dull moment.”Randall Pearson, pilot, Northern Australia
For the next 10 days, two training aircraft, our instructors, and orientees will be in the mountains of North Carolina for the mountain phase of pre-field orientation training.
- Pray for safety as instructors and orientees operate in a more challenging environment.
- Pray for the experiences that each of our three orientees need to help prepare them for their overseas service.
- Remember all the spouses and family of our training staff and orientees who are 'left behind' for these 10 days. Pray for protection and provision of their needs.
