Yahoo! He Passed!

It's over, he passed the T.E.! Praise the Lord and thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers. And a special thanks to the guys (and gal) at Proclaim Aviation that gave us a huge assist in getting ready!

What's next? Well, first, we'll go as fast as we can to Indiana to hug and kiss our kiddos we've been missing somethin' fierce! Then back to the frigid north in Minnesota!!

What's next in our journey toward mission service in east Africa? Jerry will continue to work in the hangar to gain as much experience as possible; then Support raising (A Biggie!); then back here, JAARS, in North Carolina, for 10 weeks of training in the T.O. (yes, yet another acronym!), the technical orientation. In the T.O., Jerry will learn, among other skills, the precise art of taking off and landing on rural and bush runways in jungles, on mountainsides, in the mud, etc...

And yes, we still ask for your prayers! We're so glad you're along with us for this incredible ride!
