Mission Airplane

$16,710 of $64,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 1 month
The airplane I am asking for funds to buy, to help the needy people in bush Alaska. I have recently come across a nice  Cessna 206 For $79,000, Which he was trying to sell very soon and that is why he is asking a good price for it. So I'm hoping to raise enough money within the next month to purchase this.

I am a missionary in Bush Alaska out in the Bethel area (YK Data). I got my pilots license several years ago through a mission Organization  that trains missionary pilots like me. I am very grateful for this Training and want to continue to help others with it. The mission organization also loaned me a plane for several months at a time. And are now unable to do so due to the high demand of training that they are going through and need all the airplanes now. I do numerous of things. I help people that are in need, I hold Bible studies, teach practical life skills to kids and Adults, and many other things.

The main thing is that I love the Lord Jesus and as I help them I love showing people His love and telling them how Jesus Christ Died on the cross to save us from our sins and give us a Home in heaven.

An interesting story:
Four days before I return the last airplane I was Loaned to me I got a called from a native friend  in a village that can only access via airplane at this time, he needing a ride up to the Emergency Room. I was planning on going down to pick him up, but before I could get going, his son called me and said that his Dad was having a hard time breathing.  I quickly went to the airport, and got in my plane and flew down. When I got down there, I found out that He had stopped breathing and passed out and didn't have the medical care he needed. He was having a heart attack (we later found out). I got him back to Bethel and into the emergency room before anything really bed happened. And later found out there was no medevac available for at least three hours and the village is a 5 min flight away. I got him to Bethel in 30 minutes from the time of the phone call. This is one of many stories of how an airplane can help the Native people where I live and serve.

Bethel is a place that you can only get to by aircraft. It is 400 miles west of Anchorage Ak and there is 6,300 people living in Bethel. There is 56 villages surrounding Bethel which can mostly only be accessed by aircraft. Each one of the villages are very hard to live in and most of them are 300 to 500 people. there is approximately about 30,000 people in this Delta.  

So your help in this way will help meeting thousands of people's need for years to come. Your gift will be most appreciated. May God bless you for your giving.
