We awoke this morning to the usual fog and low clouds hugging the mountains surrounding Ukarumpa. While this normally burns off before 8 am allowing our planes to begin their normal flight schedule, the heavier cloud cover delayed today’s marathon ferrying schedule until 5 minutes before 9 am.
Saturday’s are full of catch-up chores, one of which is doing laundry. Everyone uses clotheslines. (I, yes, Jon, sometimes do laundry!) While outside several times doing said chore, it was great to see the planes go, return, go, return. In December 2010 Julie and I attended the Malei NT dedication; and, while every celebration is different, we know everyone there this weekend will be blessed. We’re looking forward to sharing the excitement when people return on Monday.
Yes, it’s a great day for flying—especially when it means bringing the Word of God to people who are hungering for it. Getting there any other way would be both difficult and hazardous. We’re grateful for people who provide financial gifts and to the generosity of Quest Inc. (manufacturer of the Kodiak) who make missions aviation possible.
