Two days after Christmas missionary pilot Paul Wilhelmson found himself “halfway between somewhere and nowhere,” waiting for the arrival of a missionary family.
Paul rested in a hotel near the closest available airstrip to the missionaries’ jungle home while the family endured an 11-hour road trip that included mud holes, break downs, walking and pushing their vehicle. The weary family finally arrived after dark.
The trip that took a full day for the family would have been covered in less than ten minutes if the village airstrip had been ready. The family was spared another eight hours on the road by meeting the plane at a “halfway” point.
Please pray that the village airstrip can be completed, and continue to pray for endurance and encouragement for those serving in remote locations.
