Airplanes Need Airports... and we got one!

Subtitle: The Chinese Have Landed!

The Bongolo Hospital's airstrip just got a big face lift! A Chinese road crew started work on Sunday, July 12th, and wasted no time!

Graders and rollers and dozers... oh my!

They're even giving the ramp area an upgrade!

We're trusting that the plantation owners
bordering the runway will understand!

This is near the West end of the runway looking East.

This is the East end of the runway looking West.
It looks like the start of a drag race!
Kelly Family "Patrol" on the left
Thompson "Land Cruiser" on the right.
I know where I'm putting my money.

It is incredible to me that these things are starting to happen. The purchase of the plane and the preparation of the airport are coming together. We are so grateful to the Lord and the supportive team that He has assembled to make this possible.
