God just keeps continuing to bless us! This is a cool story that happened to me (Jeff) just a few days ago:

When we fly we use headsets so that we can communicate with Air Traffic Control as well as our students. Anyway, I had 2 headsets that I had inherited from my dad. Needless to say they were rather "seasoned" and both of them decided that they were going to stop working. I sent them in to get fixed to the manufacturing company but the quote to fix them was way higher than I was expecting. We weren't going to be able to afford to fix either of the 2 headsets. I was a little bummed, to say the least but decided that it was going to be ok and the situation would end up working itself out. Just on Tuesday night it did!

The head of the School of Aeronautics had sent a letter to a headset manufacturer that gives free headsets out to flight school graduates headed to the mission field. I had no idea this opportunity even existed until I was presented with an amazing new headset last Tuesday night at our annual Missions Banquet at the Liberty School of Aeronautics!!! How amazing is that? I couldn't even believe it. Myself and a fellow flight instructor (who is also going over to Africa) both received these headsets. It is by far the nicest headset I've ever had and way nicer than I would have been able to afford. God knew I would need a headset and set this in motion before I even sent mine in to be repaired. He continues to show His goodness to Sarah and I even with the little things in our lives.

I just thought I'd share this experience. Thanks for your continued prayers!

  1. That's awesome!
    Even something so little can communicate so loudly God's love for us. In fact, some of the smallest things point out that God would care about the meaningless, minute details in our fleeting lives is spectacular (not to say the headphones weren't needed).

    "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
    ~Matthew 6:26-34
