Where are you parked now?

I was asked that a few days ago and I realized that I never have really done a blog about that. So here goes. We are parked in Nampa, Idaho near the airport and MAF, which stands for Mission Aviation Fellowship. This is where their headquarters are located. We have known about MAF for years ever since Kent was in aviation school. Many of his fellow students, some of them good friends went with MAF around the world.

MAF mostly flies missionaries in remote areas of the world. That is how the mission started and in recent years they are doing more and more humanitarian work, such as taking supplies into Haiti, Indonesia and other places when there is a natural disaster. They also have launched into learning technologies. That is helping people from all over the world to be able to learn in their language. With the internet and satellites there is so much more available for anyone.

Here are the MAF buildings

You might ask but why are you and Kent parked there?

We came to this area because the leadership at WorldVenture asked us to come here to try to contact and engage churches locally. So we were looking for a good place to park our RV house. MAF has a lot of volunteers come through the summer. They have a very nice RV park for the volunteers that come here in their RVs.

I love being outside and so offered to weed their landscaping and have helped some with some mowing as well. So that is what I have done all summer.

Here is some of what I have cared for all summer

The volunteers give 30 hours of work for the mission between the couple. Kent and I both do some work here. Kent has been able to work on planes again.He has really enjoyed that too. He works on Mondays as most pastors are not available then.

So we felt it would be a good place for us to park and be able to help another good mission organization as well as be where WorldVenture wanted us to be. So it helps us being here as we then do not need to pay for our site. And since right now we are a bit behind in support it helps us in that way too. So God supplies this very nice spot for us and we have made many new friends here among the staff, other volunteers and at our adopted church in the area too. Kent has spoken at several meetings and churches in the area as well. He has met many pastors and shared the vision of WorldVenture.

So now you can see how God has blessed us this summer. Living in a RV house allows us to be versatile.
