Photo Essay: The Day Our Helicopter Came

2015-08-27-SIL-PNG-Helicopter-1Some Papua New Guinea school children in the village of Arop found one of our helicopters parked in their main school yard one morning. It needed to make a stop for the night, and the yard was one of the few open fields in the area. The pilot, Gavin Jones, had already arranged for it to stay there. He stayed with us for the night. The next morning, the whole school watched him prepare to take off. When he was ready, Gavin asked the students to go inside the buildings before lifting off.

    Huzah for my favorite missionaries! My brother, my sister, and Gavin! It’s great to see where our prayers are flying!

    Yes, paths cross, and prayers do fly. Also prayer cross and paths fly – and God guides them all! I’m so glad He guided you three together, and pray that was a blessing. (Great play on words, too, Wendy!

    I keep forgetting you two know the Jones. One of these days I’ll sit down with you and ask you to remind me how that came about.
