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
While their husbands are fine-tuning their flying and fixing skills for serving overseas, the wives of our aviation orientees meet on Monday mornings with Penny Tallman and Nancy Ramsdale to visit and talk about different aspects of living overseas. Between them, Penny and Nancy and their families served in Brazil, Papua New Guinea, Peru, and the Philippines. In addition, women with overseas experience come to present and discuss topics like handling cultural transition, health and safety, and children’s education.
JAARS is a finalist again this year for a Lightspeed Aviation Foundation grant. If we win, we'll use the grant to invest in people -- those who fly and maintain aircraft in the most remote parts of the world. From pre-field orientation to recurrent training our aviation training program helps equip pilots and mechanics for ongoing safe and effective ministry.
