Waiting Upon the Lord
Life is full of "ups" and "downs" but God is just as good in the "downs" as He is in the "ups"!
On June 19, 2002 my flight instructor and I, lost control of the aircraft during a landing and did $67,000 worth of damage.
Thankfully, neither of us were hurt. We had performed three takeoffs and landings successfully when we set
up for the fourth landing. Everything looked beautiful as we touched down, the aircraft slowed, and the tailwheel began
settling to the ground. Then, suddenly, the aircraft began veering to the left. I applied full right rudder which
seemingly had no effect. The aircraft ran off the left shoulder of the runway, the right wing struck the ground
and then the airplane nosed over and came to rest on it's nose.
The insurance has settled with us, and we now have money for another aircraft. In addition
to this we retained salvage rights to the already damaged aircraft which I have sold to a missionary pilot in Canada.
I believe this is part of God's plan to provide us with the best aircraft for the work in the islands! Pray for us as
we seek God's will in this matter!
