Aviation Missionary Work in Papua New Guinea
Notes from My Journal 01-27-2012
We live in the most entertained generation of history—yet the most bored generation. How does that work?
Video from PNG: "First Ministry Flights"
A video of some of the first ministry flights into the Kamea area.
A trip down the major highway in PNG really stresses the invaluable asset that the airplane is in this country. If the highway is like this, just imagine trying the “side roads”!
Our First Flight into the Land of the Kamea
Today was the first time we flew the plane into the Land of the Kamea.
First Flight of P2-TMK
Photos and video of the first flight as P2-TMK!! An hour and a half and three takeoffs and landings later… Taxi back into the ramp. Special thanks to Jonathan Federwitz and SIL Aviation for providing the training. (new photos of the dedication were added Monday, March 22nd)
New Numbers, Stripes and Logo!We Praise God for His Wonderful Provision!
“That they may know that this is thy hand; that Thou, LORD, hast done it.”

Work Team from Temple Baptist Church (Herndon, VA) is “ambushed”, builds a hanger and sees exactly how “dry” the “Dry Season” really is. Pastor James Naudi’s first baptism. A baby is rescued. The clinic sees 1002 patients in January and is flattened two days later. House calls to the “real PNG”. Some photos of the tornado damage, cleanup and rebuilding.
Matt Allen - Update: Jan. 14th 2010
Thanking the Lord for His grace and healing from pneumonia, a high-amperage wind turbine meltdown, breaking ground on the hanger, a landslide of loss and knots of sorrow, for Mankena, a “new creature” in Christ.
