Mission aviation is a fascinating scenario. On one side you have highly trained pilots flying, many times, state of the art aircraft. On the other side you have people who do not have the luxury of running water or electricity in their homes or basic medical services. These needs merge as people with a passion to minister in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ connect with those who are blessed with abundant resources to translate into mission aviation ministries touching the lives of people in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ worldwide.
Each year many of these aviation ministries and a couple hundred of the people involved in mission aviation come to Oshkosh, Wisconsin for the annual EAA AirVenture. They use this time to educate people on the presence and work of mission aviation. They share the gospel with people who stop by the International Association of Missionary Aviation (IAMA) exhibit. People who may have an interest in mission aviation get details on how they may become involved. These missionaries spread out into our churches to help education people on mission aviation with the purpose of garnering prayer support and giving people the opportunity to answer God’s call to one of these ministries.
