Pilot in Training
Dreams do come true—just never in the way we could ever have imagined! Nick’s initial dream of spending his life flying began as a teenager, but of necessity was put on hold for over twenty years until just recently, when God breathed new life into it. It has been an unfolding miracle: watching God bring together our family’s passion for flying, MAF’s vision of “flying for life” and our love of Jesus’ words, “I have come that you may have life, and have it to the fullest abundance” (John 10:10b).
We are awed by how all of our combined life experiences—in church, business, health and education—have been woven together to prepare us for this next step of completing training, with the view of working with MAF.
Along with our boys, Benji, Sam, and Edward, we’re really excited to be embarking on this new phase of our life’s adventure, as we all continue to both grow and share in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. “First comes that revelation of being greatly desired, loved, and imagined in the mind and heart of God. Everything we do, and are, can only flow from this.”
At this point of time we are considered to be “Candidates in training” and as yet we have not been fully accepted by MAF. For the first year, any donations you make will go towards the cost of our training at Mareeba. After the completion of our training we will be reassessed with the hope of being accepted as a MAF pilot.
