We are excited to announce that Case Visser, our first Takeoff Grant Recipient, has safely reached the mission field in Papua New Guinea with his family. The Takeoff Grant funded through the generosity of our Plane Faith partners served, in Case’s own words, as “a catapult to launch us onto the mission field from a short and difficult runway.” The grant also removed much of the unwanted financial stress from an already stressful time for the Visser family. All of this is part of our mission at Plane Faith—to get missionary pilots to the field quicker and keep them there longer by alleviating their flight training debt through our Takeoff Grant program.
As a missionary pilot with Samaritan Aviation, Case will be helping meet both the physical and spiritual needs of people living in the many remote villages along the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea. His flights will give them a chance for life not only in the here and now but also in eternity. Samaritan’s floatplanes regularly take to the sky, providing urgent medical care and air ambulance transportation to those with serious and life-threatening conditions. Thousands have heard the gospel as a result of these life-saving flights. Case is excited to get involved in this opportunity God has given him—an opportunity made possible, in part, by the generous donors to our Takeoff Grant program.
Thank you to everyone who has committed themselves to partner with us as we work to propel the good news about Jesus to the ends of the Earth. Through your partnership, we will continue to mobilize individuals like Case who have been called by God to reach some of the most isolated people on the planet.
Would you consider donating today to help us fund our next round of Takeoff Grants? Together we can reach the ends of the Earth!
