took the wings of the morning and settled at the furthest limits of the
sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold
me fast. -Psalm 139:9-10
Our Wings of the Morning plane, flown by Gaston
Ntambo, is the sole source of quick medical evacuation in North
Katanga. This ministry is available to all in need; those with
life-threatening injuries and illnesses are not charged to be flown to
hospitals. Many lives have been over the years thanks to the Wings of
the Morning program.
In addition to medical evacuation, Wings of the Morning is used to
transport visitors to our conference--especially medical mission groups.
Our pilot, Gaston, dreams
of having a larger plane that runs on low-cost
and easy-to-obtain gas. While it may seem
counter-intuitive, a larger plane would be much
cheaper to operate. It would allow for fewer
trips when transporting people and supplies (the
current plane fits 5 passengers without
luggage), and would not require AV-gas, making
each trip less expensive.
