This week we have several volunteers in our hangar: Kevin, Tim, and Tim.
Kevin and the first Tim are father and son. Kevin volunteered with us earlier this year as part of the missions team from LeTourneau University which spent a week with us in March. Kevin was interested in returning, shared MMS with his father, and Tim asked if he could accompany his son as an additional volunteer on a three day visit. Of course, we said, "Of course."
Kevin's been busy for the past two days cleaning engine parts from the LAMP Cessna 337. Tim worked on the airframe of the 337 and today assisted with an oil change on a local airplane. It's a blessing to be able to provide the opportunity for these willing men to help move mission aviation forward.
Thank you Kevin and Tim for taking time out of your busy lives to spend three days in service with us.
Our third volunteer, and second "Tim" in the post headline, is in a little bit different situation as he already has his A&P certificate and is serving with Wycliffe Bible Transators in Papua New Guinea. Tim is volunteering with us to gain additional experience that will be of benefit on his return to PNG later this year. Providing additional or advanced training to missionaries already assigned to a field program is another way that MMS serves the greater mission aviation community. We look forward to getting to know this Tim better over the next few months.
Welcome to MMS, Tim.
