Made it to Brissy (Brisbane)!

This is a bit late, but better late than never. Thank you so much for your prayers for me during my trip down to Brisbane, Australia in the helicopter. It was a good trip. I'm happy to say that nothing remarkable or out of the ordinary happened all the way down. The helicopter operated flawlessly over the long stretch of ocean and the hundreds of miles of Australian outback. I enjoyed seeing so much of a country in which I've spent little time. It took 18 hours of flight time and 10 stops for fuel over three days to get there. I was able to get some autorotation training as well. It's good to be home again with my family. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

Over the Torres Strait-- the part of the Pacific Ocean between Papua New Guinea and Australia.

Over the flat and seemingly endless outback of the Cape York Peninsula.

At my final destination before leaving the helicopter to its new owners. The machine served our mission and the people of PNG for 25 years. Thank God for tools like this that help bring God's word to people who have never had it!

Thanks again for your prayers!
