We’re grateful to have
had a special holiday to
remind us that Jesus’
presence here on earthwas in itself a miracle.God became one of us,veiled His glory, andhumbled Himself over and over
from His ig-nominious birth amonglivestock, to His life of poverty and bitter rejec-tion by men, to His un- just and humiliatingdeath on the cross. Trulythere is no other likeHim.John is still hard at work with Compass Avia-tion
a mobilizing min-istry that helps to prepareand direct aspiring mis-sionary aviators. Theyhelp provide specializedflight training as well asmaintenance proficiency.Typically, after 1-3 yearsthe candidates are readyto undergo technicalevaluations with their chosen missionary or-ganization. Once theserigorous exams are passed, the candidatemoves on to their finaltraining with that mis-sion group, before head-ing out to the field.
It’s bittersweet to invest
years in the lives of theseaviators and their fami-lies and then have to saygoodbye. Jamin andElizabeth Peck have justleft us to take their placewith New Tribes Mis-sion, and we are alreadymissing them! Sayinggoodbye is hard, but thisis after all why Compassexists! We rejoicewhenever we receiveupdates from former
