Hope Flights!

Today, because of the generosity of God's people both in Gabon and around the world, we were able to transport a boy and a girl from the "Hope House" home for abandoned children from the city of Libreville to the Bongolo Hospital.  There, they will receive medical care- also provided through the generous gifts from around the globe in the name of Jesus.

L to R:  Henrika, Flavienne (guardian), and Famou.

Loaded up and briefed on the safety features!

Henrika was my co-pilot.  This was her first time in an airplane!

Her dream is to be a pilot!  Sadly, there are no flight training opportunities for her in Gabon... yet!
After arrival at the hospital airstrip, I put them to work rolling N207FD into the hangar.

"Watch the wings!  Watch the wings!"  Will it fit???

It fit!  Famou will have to have his leg re-broken and repaired with a "sign" rod.  Henrika will have dental work done. (note- within an hour and a half of this photo, "phase 1" of Henrika's care was finished!  Thanks Dr. Neni!!!)
Incredible things happen when God's children come together to be part of the heritage of blessing!  These two lives are going to be changed forever with this medical care.  More important, the resulting eternal impact will be a loud testimony for the world to see.  Thanks for supporting this team!
