Spreading the Gospel to Souls in Isolation
Did you realize nearly half of the people in the world will not have an opportunity to hear the gospel before they die? In this age of technology, that is astonishing! In fact, over 4 billion people do not even have access to the internet. In Mexico alone, the non-internet users account for 55% of the population. That is over 70 million people in our neighboring country who will not be able to hear the gospel by using this technology.
Many missionaries on campaigns will go only where a car or bus can take them. We need to reach beyond that! There are souls beyond roads and even internet service still needing someone to bring them the gospel message. Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
How can we do that? How will we contact and effectively reach these isolated people?
One way is through missionary aviation! Flying into remote locations uses today’s technology to reach isolated souls with the gospel. There are dozens of organizations involved in this type of work and have been for decades. The problem is there are no missionary pilots currently serving on behalf of the church of Christ!
Soaring for Souls seeks to fulfill this need by providing evangelist campaigns, medical supplies, and disaster relief to souls in the isolated pockets of the Caribbean Islands and other parts of the world as God allows. This work receives oversight by the Jasper church of Christ in Jasper, Texas where Brian Howard serves as the preacher. He is a father of four, and seeks to obtain the proper ratings for flying missionary campaigns to these isolated pockets of the world, and then train others to do likewise. The long term objective will be to offer more affordable aviation schooling for members of the church of Christ who wish to fill this tremendous void.
We pray you will want to come and be a part of these mission trips or play a supporting role in this endeavor. If you cannot go, we humbly ask for your help with the funding needed for these trips and for the future school.
June 2021 Alliance Update
Soaring for Souls is excited to announce our recent partnership alliance with Churches of Christ Disaster Response Team.
Disaster Response Team, located near Dayton, Ohio, has served people throughout the United States the past 20 years and exists to immediately aid in recruiting and receiving volunteers to assist with the emotional and spiritual needs of the disaster victims, and assist them them in clean-up and rebuild staging.
Soaring for Souls seeks to use missionary aviation to take the Gospel of Christ to those in isolation with long-term objectives of training pilots for placement in the mission fields around the world.
This unique partnership will leverage SFS volunteer pilot base to take timely aerial footage of disaster ridden areas throughout the United States which aids DRT in determining what and where help is needed. This should drastically reduce the time it takes to begin helping those who are hurting after a fire, hurricane, tornado, or other natural disaster.
If you have interest in using your skills and abilities for DRT, please visit their website at churchesofchristdrt.org.
Please pray the Lord will guide our efforts as He receives the glory in this work. May God bless you!
