Rapid Response To Zambia, Africa

Josh and Paul are completing their second week of a four week Rapid Response trip to Zambia, Africa to assist Christian Missions in Many Lands (CMML) with an engine exchange on their Cessna 207.

Josh actually overhauled the engine in 2009 and shipped it over to CMML just for this occassion. CMML knew their current engine would soon need overhaul and, to keep the aircraft's down time to a minimum, asked MMS to prepare its replacement engine well ahead of time so it would be on hand when needed. (If you click here and then advance through the newer blog posts you'll be able to follow the progress of the engine overhaul in 2009.)

And then, when it was time for replacement, Josh and Paul were invited over to do the installation.

The old engine is removed from the 207.

Paul installs accessories on the MMS-overhauled engine.

The new engine rests in the engine compartment.

Please pray for Josh and Paul as they complete their work in Zambia and for the families they've left behind for this month of overseas service.

The engine is in and has ran. We have the nose gear out and spent 18 hours yesterday, stripping, inspecting and repainting. Paul is reassembling the nose gear and we hope to reinstall it today and get back to rigging the engine.

Thank you for your prayers. Josh
