Due to the high cost and scarce availability of Avgas (Aviation Gas) in Cameroon, Africa, some of the airplanes that missionaries use are being upgraded to a jet fuel burning turbine aircraft. This type of gas is more available in this country. Yesterday, JAARS pilots Bruce Powell and Tom Beekman began the 4 day ferry flight of a Cessna 207 across the Atlantic to Cameroon. Bruce is the father of some of Christine’s high school friends and Tom served as a pilot with us in Indonesia for many years.
You can track this flight as it goes across the world! Will you please pray for these two men and their families? It is a long trip! You can follow them on their journey by going to www.jaars.org, or to the following link:
