When I named this blog I suspected I might have to change the name some time. It came a lot more quickly than anticipated.  Meanwhile I’ll put up a few words and see if anyone actually reads this.  Our regular blog is http://news.send100.org/

Air Show Excitement!

Filed under: Missions — smythsinpng @ 5:26 am

Oshkosh! After hearing about it frequently in my thirty years of flying, I finally made it to the largest air show! Diana and joined a team of missionaries to represent missionary aviation to the community.

There were airplanes in the sky day and night with many performing wild aerobatics, but the real excitement for us was near the New Tribes Mission Aviation display tent.

We were talking to people about God and the least-reached peoples of the world!

Every person’s greatest need is to know God. He is the source of everything they desire and everything they need. He is the author of life and eternal life. He is the Creator of everything we value and enjoy.  He is very good, very generous and very wealthy as the Creator and Owner of everything.  He wants to share who He is and what He has created with you!

Some people have been misinformed about God’s character and nature. Some people simply refuse to believe what is true because of the implications of who they are and what they have done. (Pride. The thing that got Satan kicked out of heaven and drove him to be the chief maligner of God’s character.)

Many people have simply never heard of the Creator God and have no access to His written message to man; the Holy Bible. God’s command to tell everyone everywhere about Him has not yet been accomplished. Who will tell them of His goodness and love?

More than 100 people groups in very remote places on earth have asked for missionaries to tell them about God. The problem is that we do not have the missionaries to send to them. Teaching them will require learning their language and culture, translating the Bible, teaching them to read and making disciples who can teach others. Who will go?

We talked to many people about the need, including several students who are already preparing to serve as missionary aviators.

Just to meet known personnel needs New Tribes Mission Aviation will require at least 54 new families over the next five years to serve missionaries in ministry.

Will you pray with us for laborers to send into the harvest? Will you send or go?
