Papua New Guinea
Since the end of 1995, Crystal and I have spent many years in the beautiful South Pacific country of Papua New Guinea. We have been involved in Christian education there, much of it aviation oriented. At first I served as the coordinator of the schools using the ACE program in PNG. Later, with some PNG partners, we established Eagles' Wings Aviation Ministry, still utilizing Accelerated Christian Education (ACE). We have had the privilege to train Christian School staff who are now serving from one end of Papua New Guinea to the other.
The picture above is one of my favorites, showing the beautiful mountain scenery of Papua New Guinea, as well as the heart of a missionary for her people. This is Crystal and our daughter Rachel at Kassam Pass about 2002.
In 2009, we helped organize a new Church in Goroka under Evangelical Bible Mission. Here is the congregation and a baptismal service in December that year.
More pictures soon!
New Guinea is the eastern half of the world's second largest island.
It is just south of the equator and directly north of Australia. We
have had the privilege and honor of ministering to, and working
with, these warm hearted and friendly people.
It is our desire to
help educate children and young people to see all of life from God's
point of view, and to do His will with their lives.
We believe God has a plan for every life. Every child was created for a specific purpose, and only an education centered on the truth of God's Word can possibily bring the student up to his full potential and fulfillment.
On this page we share some pictures from various ministry activities we have worked on in PNG.
