In 1985, Colombian guerillas kidnapped an NTM Aviation pilot and the plane he flew and carefully hid them in the jungles of Colombia. The pilot, Paul Dye, found himself facing an impossible situation. As he asked God what he should do, he was impressed to get up in the middle of the night and escape with the plane. His miraculous night escape has been used by God to encourage many others through the years as they have seen the movie or read the book called “When Things Seem Impossible”.
Paul’s story is just the beginning. NTM Aviation has watched as God has intervened many times just when things seemed impossible. Recently NTMA experienced another impossible situation untangle right before their eyes. On June 5, 2014 the mission received a new Quest Kodiak for work on the field of Papua New Guinea. Many new NTM tribal works are scheduled to open in the next year in PNG and this plane is critical in the support of these works. This is another amazing story of God’s timely provision.
Those planning to attend the EAA AirVenture are encouraged to stop by NTM Aviation (booth #20) and find out how God continues to use airplanes to reach those living in nearly impossible to reach places of the world with the Gospel of Christ. AirVenture dates are July 28 – August 3.
