“…from here to there.”
An Airstrip Construction Report
“I tell you the truth if you have faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing will be impossible.” Matt 17:20
I find it absolutely amazing as I walk within a remote village with its leaders looking for a place that “Before the foundations of the earth were formed…” our Lord had in HIS heart an airstrip for the village and for those within it that HE longs to hold for Eternity!
Seeking a sufficient spot to land a plane in a mountainous village takes some walking in faith AND believing that it will be just as our Lord designed it to be! Sometimes, it also takes a little help from Caterpillar and some incredible equipment operators to “move [that mountain] from here to there…” But it is ALL in faith…or all would be impossible!
The finished airstrip at the refugee village of Los Lotes “viewed from above”!
Four airstrips were constructed in the first three months of 2018…while in addition to hosting our 6 Mission Teams living in the refugee village of Los Lotes! That in itself took Faith, and thus mountains were moved in Jesus Name! The 11 amazing operators, that graced us with their skill, all stayed in the perspective remote villages during the construction. Some had it “a little better than others”, but I heard not one complaint. Nearly 600 equipment hours were logged. As incredible as is the construction of the airstrips, even more, incredible is the Discipleship and Church Planting that each will now offer! This is truly “An Investment In Eternity”!
“Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain.” Isa 40:4
danps: All four airstrips were covered financially and we Praise our Lord for HIS provision though those who captured our Lord’s vision to reach the lost through Aviation. But we cannot reach all the nearly 200 villages we work with by air…thus the “Macho 4×4 Vans” PBM utilizes are literally the“…feet of those who bring good news!” An email will be coming your way soon to help us purchase a replacement for Macho 1. The 11 years of “Extreme Service” Macho 1 has provided has taken an incredible toll on it. We are in desperate need of that replacement, and yet another Discipleship pickup…both in a time of financial faith walking! Stay tuned, and in PRAYER!
