The Maule flies again! The airplane is old enough and has been flown so much that some of the components are coming up for overhaul. Two overhauled mags and an overhauled attitude indicator. My attitude is improving already!
No we didn’t switch to Geico…
We wanted till I was done flying for Kokrine Hills Bible Camp before we switched from wheels to floats. That how much difference the fuel cost per makes when you have a lot of flying to do.
January has been fairly typical weather wise and we are grateful for the days getting longer instead of shorter. The kids have been battling cabin fever and it’s tough to play outside for more than an hour at -30f but they make the best of it. Lyndy continues to homeschool the kids and she suffers from cabin fever from time to time too. Adam has had several opportunities to fly this winter but with flying comes maintenance so today he is rebuilding the airplane’s tailwheel/ski.
Today we just received “official word” via a letter from the board of The Master’s Mission that effective January 1st, 2011 TMM began “appropriating 5% of total monies receipted for mission overhead and administration.” We have anticipated this announcement for almost a year and many of you graciously and sacrificially increased you support accordingly ahead of this “official announcement.” Thank you for that. Although this comes at a time when our own support levels are falling we trust that “God will continue to supply all of our needs according to His riches in Glory.”
