Kodiak Fight Evaluation: Passed!

Today is December 15th. One year & 2 months exactly since the day of the accident.

After God miraculously saved Jon’s life, we have had endless prayers, months of recovery, countless people cheering us on & huge hurdles that God has given Jon the strength & endurance to overcome.

We sit in awe of God & say to God be ALL the glory, honor & power, please PRAISE God with us as we are thrilled to announce:

Jon has passed his Kodiak flight evaluation & we were given the, “Go ahead,” to go back to Papua New Guinea!!!!!!!!!

“Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, And HE shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in HIM, And HE shall bring it to pass. HE shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for HIM;” Ps 37:3-7

    My heart is so overjoyed at this news! When I prayed for this months ago after Jon’s life was spared I dared not believe it was true because my sight and faith were so small… Still I continued to pray with hopeful expectation… My keyboard is blurred to me by my joyful tears for how great our God is and how wonderful his grace poured out upon the world! I am so delighted for all of you. THANK YOU, God! Bless you all… May your witness of God’s faithfulness be a testimony to those who do not believe in PNG that they might know the Truth of our Lord and Savior!
    Jon, you are an heroic inspiration to me… I have watched in awe at the resilience of your determination to serve and honor God with your giftedness – regardless the number of limbs – and while your frustrations, doubts (if ever) and sadness may not show in the pictures we’ve seen, your obedience to our Savior is so humbling and encouraging… Thank you for being a leader among men. What a great legacy you have embraced for your children and the whole of the Kingdom around you for those who have seen God’s work in you! May God continue to bless you richly, my dear brother.

    Hi Jon & Adie,
    Praise God! Praise God! He is faithful who promised. It is with gratitude that I look back at the journey God has taken you on because it it is for His glory and for the furtherance of the gospel. The honor is His. We are glad too because He has put a joy in your hearts and praise on your lips as well as healing and new plans.
    We look forward to further miracles in PNG. 🙂

    Praise the Lord!! Our little prayer team at Flagler Beach Community Church has been praying for you weekly! We have missionaries from our church with Wycliffe that are in Papau New Guniea, Tim and Gina Matthews. They had requested that we pray for you right after your accident. We have been so blessed as we followed your progress. You and your family were loved and prayed for by total strangers! That is just what Christians do!! God did it again!! Merry Christmas and God’s Blessings

    Judy Kilgore and the prayer team, Ronnie, Judy, Claudia, Grace, Pam, Bobbie M, and Bobbie S

  21. I Praise the Lord tonight for this blessing. There is answered prayer, joyfulness that the people of New Guinea will be getting a first class pilot and one who loves God and will share His glorious message with them at every opportunity!! God is SO GOOD!!!
