I'll post a full story soon, but wanted to get a post about the good news! Yesterday AM, while the Western world slept (mostly), the Gabonese civil aviation director of airports proclaimed that the Lebamba/Bongolo Aerodrome is ready for business!
Dr. Keir T., Pastor Serge B., Mr. S (civil aviation), and myself walked the full length of the runway, discussing mostly the few "tweaks" that still need done, but, in the end, he said that these things were of minor consequence and that the airport was good to go!
Praise God! Thanks to all those who have been praying and supporting this effort. Things are moving along!
