  2. We are praising God with you, Jon & Adie!!! We have been praying for strength and supernatural dexterity since the check rides were scheduled, and will keep remembering you in the progress toward field release and check out. Congratulations!!!

    Your story has been a year-long inspiration to those training to serve God and people through aviation…and Adie has been a tremendous example of a God-trusting, stable wife, who has persevered through all the trials, being honest and transparent about the hardest moments when the human instincts pulled the opposite direction….no better reminder to our students of the importance of a faithful ministry partner whose vows are tested by fire! What a privilege to meet you this summer at Oshkosh!

    So wonderful to hear and we join you in praise to our Father……for the healing given, for the strength for Jon to persevere through a torturous experience, for the passing of these tests and for the grace to trust for the final one. May His Hand continue to rest on you all to your good, the good of those you serve and for His glory.

    Praise the Lord! It is wonderful that you keep pressing ahead and trusting in the Lord, even after such a set back. The verse brought a tear to my eyes. I need always to remember that!

  12. Praying earnestly for you, Jon, here in Lubbock, Texas. Also, praying for your foot surgery on Nov. 3rd.
    We feel strongly that God has plans for you soon in the air over New Guinea.
