The last month was a busy one with the IAMA Conference. Last year we had to do a virtual conference which went well but we were very happy to be able to hold it live at Moody Aviation in Spokane Washington. We had a count of 78 people who attended in person. The conference was streamed live as well and 16-24 people or groups of people logged in from Canada, Brazil, Gabon Africa as well as the United States. I sent a short email to those who attended in person asking what they liked as well what they did not find helpful. I will ask you for any feed back you may have if you watched online and in particular what would you like to see presented at future IAMA Conferences.
There were many good presentations at the conference. One of the issues we are all having is shortage of people. Several presentations were made looking at how we are reaching out in a new way to draw young people in to see if God is calling them to missionary aviation.
We were just able to get the video recording of the presentations posted on the IAMA website:
Here are two of IAMA sponsored events for 2022:
June 18-19, 2022
Millington, Tennessee (Just North of Memphis)
The Blue Angels are performing so this will draw a crowd. We have been welcomed to have a missionary aviation display. If your mission is interested in having a display there, please let me know as soon as you can as we need to reserve an appropriate amount of space.
July 25-31, 2022
We do this annually and reach a lot of people with the challenge of missionary aviation. We have just no spots left in the IAMA tent. So if your mission wants in don’t delay, I will put you on a wait list should someone cancel.
Please be in prayer for these events that God will use them to draw workers into His harvest!
