Over the past two months, we've been blessed to welcome three new families to MMS: the Beckwiths, the Gettles, and the Newmans. It's my pleasure to introduce them to you.
Mark, Jenny, and Abigail Beckwith
The Beckwiths come to us from England and are missionaries with Mission Aviation Fellowship, United Kingdom. They'll spend two and a half years here as an apprentice family helping us maintain missionary aircraft. After completing service with MMS and gaining his FAA Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) mechanic certificate, Mark will continue in ministry by joining one of the many MAF flight programs operating in remote locations around the world.
Paul, Kristin, Grant, Cole, & and Evan Gettle
The Gettles drove up from Alabama to begin apprenticeship. Before making the move to Coshocton, Paul worked for several years as a quality control inspector for a large company that manufactures the engines used by many missionary airplanes. Paul & Kristin still seek the Lord's will for which mission to join after completing their term with MMS.
Jim, Mary, Jordan, Catherine, and Danielle Newman
Jim & Mary are missionaries with World Gospel Mission and came to us after completing nine years of service with WGM's flight program in Bolivia. Jim is already an experienced A&P mechanic and has come onboard as long-term staff in the role of Production Mechanic. Jim and Mary are maintaining their relationship with WGM and will serve with u in an "on loan" capacity.
We are thankful for the Lord's leading and provision for each of these families. Please keep them in your prayers as they adapt to life in Coshocton and learn the routines of hangar service.
