Plane dedication Saturday

A Cessna 206 like this one will be going to Brazil to serve missionaries in remote villages.

You can celebrate God’s provision for reaching tribes and transforming lives in Sanford on Saturday.

A Cessna 206 that NTM Aviation is sending to Brazil will be dedicated at the Orlando Sanford International Airport. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.; the dedication will take place at 10.

For years, church planting teams in Brazil have been without flight service. This has resulted in countless hardships for missionaries working in remote villages. Trips that would take an hour or two by plane can become days of travel by boat and on foot.

It’s not only hard on missionaries; it also hinders their ministries. They must spend far more time away from their work – away from sharing God’s Word – on trips for such things as buying supplies, taking children to school, getting paperwork completed and receiving medical care.

Numerous challenges to re-establishing a flight program in Brazil have now been overcome, and a plane is on its way.

The event will take place at 1320 E. 26th Place in Sanford. To get there, take East Airport Boulevard to South Mellonville Avenue and follow the signs to the NTM Aviation event. Here is a map.
