Under Budget and Ahead of Schedule





Super Cub Special

Under Budget and Ahead of Schedule

 

Have you ever looked at a field of sunflowers and had the thought that for every brilliant face, God has an answer-option for your current dilemma?  Once I tried to imagine all the "answer-options" that God might have.  Not surprisingly, I only arrived at about a dozen.


The last few weeks/months have been full of little ways that God has been preparing us for something big – the "behind the scenes" of the mission airplane.

On the last few medical trips, DJ and the team heard about several people who had died recently due to lack of emergency medical help.  Often DJ and I move too slowly, and hearing about these losses made us worried that we were once again doing just that.  Was there a less-than-ideal and cheaper option that we could get sooner?

DJ began to go in search of other "answer-options."  After all, people are dying out in the mountains, paralyzed by their devil-instilled fears and without the knowledge of a God who can save them.  But DJ hadn't gotten very far into the sunflower field when God stepped in.

Last Tuesday, the only existing Super Cub with a built-in stretcher door, ideal for our project, came up for sale.  When DJ saw the ad, he had a feeling it was more than coincidence; this was the very airplane we had tried to buy two years ago.  God opened one door after another and by the end of the week our offer on the plane was accepted (at $26,000 LESS than they were asking two years ago)!

Bottom line?  GMA is buying an airplane!

Here's the deal:

Step 1 - Buy the Super Cub

Step 2 - Get it flying in Bolivia.

Because God has been working behind the scenes, we are only $4,263 from Step One!!!  Step 2 is only another estimated $27,500 (some additional equipment, the ferry flight, and importation/registration in Bolivia).

You know what makes us laugh in wonder?  The whole deal will be about $45,000 less than our budget for a super cub kit and take much less time (It's a flying airplane!). We hope to have this plane saving lives in six months!

Next time you feel like doubting whether God can do something for you, remember the sunflower field and know that He is working even today for your very good

"How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand…" (Psalm 139:17-18a)
