Amazing Grace: Flights to Boma! Being on the first plane to fly into and then out of Upper Boma in 40 years was for me, an experience of a lifetime. Thank you for all your prayers and support! We landed and took off safely, which now opens the door for expanded ministry opportunities in Boma.
I’ve posted the video of this landing for your review. Check it out!
|First Landing by SEA Partners’ Staff in Upper Boma (September 2019)|
Along with the SEA Partners
‘ staff, Governor David YauYau of Boma State joined us on this historic flight. He was very excited to see the progress in Boma and was encouraged by our efforts. Amazing Grace!
|Governor YauYau (red hat) was hearing a security update in Upper Boma from the Commissioner and his staff. Normally this occurs in Lower Boma, so this was a significant event in Upper Boma.|
While this trip was only two weeks long, God granted us an amazing amount of His favor. We were given three, used 4-wheel drive vehicles to repair and take to Boma. This is monumental in that we will not only be able to move around Boma more easily but to also take the hope of Jesus Christ to other villages and tribes through farming, education and church planting. Just like the tractors, these vehicles are a blessing but require some repairs to get them in running condition. The preliminary cost to repair two of them is $9448 and I am waiting on the quote for the third. If we were to buy these used vehicles in running condition, we would pay in excess of $10,000 each. We are getting a good deal if we can raise the funds to repair them.
