It will not do to say that you have no special call to go to China.  With these facts before you and with the command of the Lord Jesus to go and preach the Gospel to every creature, you need rather to ascertain whether you have a special call to stay at home. - Hudson Taylor-

January 2017
Dearest praying family and friends,
Well, it’s good-bye 2016 and hello 2017. Some look back at 2016 as a year of great blessings and growth, while others will remember it as a year of great challenges and sorrow. Have you noticed how divided the US has become? Anger, bitterness, and distrust abound in this nation. I’ve heard people say, “You can’t trust anyone these days!” As a child of God, our immediate response should be, “I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.” Psalms 91:2 What an honor to tell our family, friends, and coworkers, that we can trust in Him!
Much has developed in the last few months that encourages us, and we trust it will encourage you as well. For the sake of space, I will hit some of the highlights.


(1) I’ve worked on enough ministry airplanes in the last year to maintain my “Inspection Authorization” from the FAA and not had to take classes. I couldn’t do that in Alaska.
(2) Have partnered with Anchor Baptist Church to acquire a Cessna P206 in mid-February that has been locked in the back of a hangar for 16 years. There are at least 3 missionaries interested in using this airplane as a tool to spread the Gospel into remote parts of their region. This is a 6-12-month project. Please pray I’ll have the help needed to bring it here.
(3) A hangar located on a nearby airport where our ministry (Mission Air Care) airplane can operate in and out of, and the aircraft maintenance can be base at has been acquired. The hangar needs a lot of work, but the airport is willing to trade repairs on hangar for rent.
(4) By God’s grace, I have received a clean bill of health from the cancer clinic, passed my flight physical, and should be current in all my flight requirements by the time most of you receive this letter. Thank you for your prayers.
(5) After surveying like-minded ministries who have asked for our help over the years, 14 expressed interest in and a need for Mission Air Care’s assistance to serve Christ in a greater way. MAC served 14 ministries at our busiest time in Alaska before the decline.
(6) There has been interest expressed in flight training from some who believe God would have them use aviation as a tool to further the Gospel.
(7) Two families, who have been corresponding, praying and seeking an aviation ministry they can serve with, believe our Lord would have them serve here at Mission Air Care. One is a business man, who is also a pilot. The other is an Army pilot who will be retiring soon. This has great potential! Please pray for God’s clear leading and provision for these families.
(8) God continues to bless as I visit our supporting churches and emphasis is placed on the importance of fulfilling The Great Commission locally, as well as, “unto the uttermost.” It has been a blessing counseling many who desire to serve The Lord using aviation as a tool.
It is obvious our Lord is answering your prayers on our behalf. Thank you. Lynn and I sincerely appreciate your prayers, support, and confidence in us and the ministry God has called us to. I believe God is indeed expanding the ministry far beyond what was possible from Alaska. Please pray that our Lord give us divine appointments to share the Gospel, and would send forth laborers into remote areas of the world, to proclaim the Gospel to those forgotten people who Christ died for.
