At the beginning of our journey we were able to spend an intensive time in Central America (travel blog). Through these experiences and impressions we got an idea of how great the need for help in poorer parts of the world is. Since then, the desire to help people practically and through the the gospel has been burining in us.
Initially, Christoph worked for the Torchbearers Christian Leisure and Bible School Center at Tauernhof in Styria (AT). But the desire to help people in poorer parts of the world has remained in our hearts. After a lot of back and forth, we decided to prepare for mission aviation. At first it seemed almost impossible to conquer this mountain. Trusting in God, we decided to start a professional pilot training in Linz (AT) (AeronautX), which he successfully completed after 15 intensive months. During this time, he gained his first bush flying experience in South Africa.
In the meantime Christoph worked as an IT technician and attended various trainings in a mission flight school in the Netherlands (MATC). As mission pilots have to maintain the aircraft themselves, Christoph attended an aircraft mechanic training in Ionia, Michigan (SMAT). During this time he also gained his US pilot licenses.
Christoph now fulfills all requirements to work as pilot and mechanic in a third world country.
If it is God’s will, we can start our work in Honduras soon. We trust God that he will provide the needed supporters to make this mission possible.
