Next week one of the largest events in our area takes place, AirVenture 2016 hosted by the E.A.A. in Oshkosh. News coverage will focus on the glitz and glamor of flight and the latest aviation innovations, not to mention the dazzling airshows. That is all a part of it. Yet something very special happens each year at this event.
This year again there will be about 200 mission aviation pilots and agencies that support mission aviation present at AirVenture. These organizations are a part of the International Association of Mission Aviation (IAMA) which has over 50 member organizations. They have a nice display tent with aircraft from Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) and Jungle Aviation And Radio Service (JAARS). People stopping by learn about mission aviation work and opportunities to support and serve with these agencies. Since all of the people in this display tent are followers of our Lord Jesus Christ there is a lot of sharing the gospel and ministry that happens there as well.
