Missionary Air Group supports the remote medical clinic, known as Rus Rus, in a small Honduran village, located along the banks of the Coco River. It’s a small outpost of Christian compassion, run by our two dear, Honduran sisters in the Lord. Enjoy this video that highlights the recent medical brigade that joined their efforts.
From time to time, our MAG aircraft need a double-portion of Tender Loving Care. That’s when we retrieve the aircraft from the field program, and bring it back to the US to be pulled apart, inspected inch-by-inch, refurbished with a couple new bells and whistles, and then put back together, with a new engine and prop.
MAG’s national church partner in Gabon, EACMG, is embarking on an ambitious construction project on 65 acres of property, just outside of the capital city of Libreville. Their desire is that the social works of the campus will demonstrate God’s love to the country’s largest population region, in Word and in Deed.
On April 22, 2017 over 300 supporters of Missionary Air Group descended upon the Burlington-Alamance Regional Airport, in Burlington, NC, for MAG’s first ever Open House and for the Dedication Ceremony of MAG’s new ministry headquarters.
People wait in line outside the hospital to receive medical and dental care after having walked for up to two days to get there. This means carrying food, bedding, and children with them. Large extended family groups and even entire villages often travel together for safety.
Nearly a year of preparation, government paperwork, and construction has finally culminated with the official opening of MAG’s new “home base” airstrip in the Peten region of Guatemala.
Missionary Air Group has a new Headquarters facility at the Burlington-Alamance Regional Airport. This facility is the new home for our US-based administrative, development, flight training, and aircraft maintenance departments, which will strengthen our ability to deliver “Help and Hope by Air” through our international field programs.
In July 2016, MAG Director of Pastoral Ministries, Pastor Carlos Paz, was joined by Honduran Pastors Pastor Esaú Nuñez Sosa and Roman Lopez Chow on a mission to provide biblical training to 60 pastors from the Miskito people group – 40 pastors in Waspan, Nicaragua and 20 pastors in Suhi, Honduras. This is part of the ongoing effort of Missionary Air Group to strengthen the local church by bringing needed pastoral training to this remote part of the Nicaraguan frontier.
In February 2016, Sean Donelly (MAG CEO), Alace Straw (MAG Member Care Specialist), and Steve Straw (MAG Chief Pilot) met with the national leadership of the C&MA (Christian & Missionary Alliance) churches in Libreville, Gabon. The Straw’s established the mission aviation program in Gabon, known locally as “Aviation Médicale de Bongolo”, in 2008. The service provides critical transport needs to national church efforts, especially the Bongolo Hospital, a 160-bed full-service hospital in the remote south of Gabon. The Cessna 207 aircraft (N207FD) is owned by MAG, who has become the sole “aviation partner” of the Bongolo Hospital and the C&MA National Church of Gabon.
