A couple of weeks ago I was involved in some flight training up in PNG. As we came into land at Hewa, pilot Irwin Hodder mentioned that every single man in that village had killed a man. I took a deep breath as Irwin was forced to shut down the engine, rather than become airborne again immediately. Any time on the ground in this place was too long for me!
I was struck by the significant difference that the Word of God can have - not changing cultures, but redeeming them. As we in MAF fly, as we fix aircraft, work with technology, serve in remote places, care for our kids, work in support offices … the list goes on and on … we are each a small part of God’s redemptive work in bringing people out of darkness into light.
