Where are we off to Next?

Our Visit to Guyana

In the middle of May of this year, we visited a project in Guyana, South America to assess the need and how we would fit into the project.   We found that God is preparing to do a mighty work there. 
Currently there is one pilot and one airplane working overtime to meet the needs of a small area of Guyana. Captain James Ash is mainly working in region 7 providing medical evacuation and carrying supplies to mission projects there. There are many more regions that really need these services.
 Meanwhile, there are two airplanes almost ready to be flown down to Guyana and put into service.  But there is still only one pilot.  This is a very unique situation.  Usually you have too many pilots and not enough airplanes. 
However, the devil is working hard to keep God's work from moving forward in Guyana. 
Some of you may have heard of Todd Anderson.  He was a friend of ours.  He was a pilot and mechanic who served in Guyana.  For the past year he and his family were living in Tennessee working on one of the airplanes that is schedule to go to Guyana.  He and his family were scheduled to fly the plane down this spring.  However the devil had other plans and this past December he was diagnosed with Tetroma a cancer that is usually curable.  This spring when he was just finishing his Chemo he had a reaction to one of the drugs and his lungs were destroyed.  On April 22, he went to sleep in Jesus.  Please pray for this family Cas and her two kids Millie and Sam as they grieve and move forward without him.  
There is one other family Edwin and Laura Davidson, who have plans to service in Guyana but are continually coming up against obstacles which are delaying their departure.  Please pray for the Lord to remove the obstacles so they can move forward.
As you can see the devil knows that the Gospel is needed in Guyana, but he is stopping the progress.  Please be praying for the project that more pilots and funding will be provided for the project to reach the people there.

What is Guyana like?
Guyana is a former British colony that gained it's independence 50 years ago.  there are about 900.000 people living there with about 1/3rd of them in the one major city Georgetown, with most of the rest of them along the Caribbean coastline. The interior is sparsely populated with native Amerindians. Guyana's terrain and climate varies from tropical rain forest to desert and is warm all year long with a short wet season and a long dry season.  To get into the interior of Guyana, most people have to ride the river system which can take days.  There are almost no roads as you move away from the coast and many emergency medical needs end badly. 
Who is GAMAS and what are they doing?
Guyana  Adventist Ministries and services (GAMAS) aviation's  mission is to support the message and mission of the Seventh-day   Adventist Church by providing logistical air support to all GAMAS Projects, extend medical services to those in the remote regions of Guyana and advance the cause of mission aviation within Adventism.  Other GAMAS projects are three secondary schools, one medical missionary training school, and one bible worker training school.

GAMAS Aviation plans to strategically place the 3 land based airplanes to cover most of the interior regions. We would also like to get an amphibious plane that will allow us to use rivers where there are not landing strips, increasing access to even more villages. This will allow us to insert bible workers into these villages and provide support for them and two of the Adventist secondary schools via air transport. 
Another part of the vision is to create a training environment for pilots who are interested in serving as missionaries. Currently, there is a giant leap from flight training here in the US to the demands that mission aviation puts on a pilot. GAMAS is building a program to bridge that gap and prepare pilots and their families to serve anywhere in the world.
In order to keep the whole program running,  GAMAS needs a full maintenance shop in the country.

Where do we fit in?  
We will be based in a village called Bethany which is about a 20 min flight from Georgetown.  Being this close to Georgetown will allow us to get large items needed to work on planes out to the base easier.   On the property there is already a house that is about 75% built and a runway along with a partially constructed hanger.  The Bethany flight base is just a 3 min walk from another GAMAS project: Bethany Medical Missionary Training College (BMMC). Our primary goal when we first get back there will be to finish this house so we can live there and set up the maintenance base.  Then we will focus on obtaining a sea plane and begin serving the villages along the river systems.

We look forward to serving God in this project.  If you are at all moved to participate in this project in any capacity please contact us and we would love to share more with you.

Aching for the Lost of this world

I was reading last fall on facebook about my little sisters 10 year high school reunion.  She posted a status update that stated the fact that they missed one of their classmates who has died approx 5 years ago.  I was contemplating this idea and how much we always miss those who we have lost in this life. But rarely we reach out for the "lost" in the world.
These are the words that have come to my mind about this matter and I thought I would share them with you.  Please think about how much God loves you and you were called to share that love with others

When Jesus Called Come Follow Me

When Jesus came to save the lost, he cried and cried and cried a lot.
He was heartbroken for the widows, the orphans, and the lost a lot.
He called those who believed in Him to help Him out, to seek and to save those down and out.

When Jesus said to follow me,
he did not call us to sit on a tree.

When Jesus said to follow me,
He did not call us to pay a fee.

When Jesus said to follow me,
He did not say to Just think about me.

When Jesus said to follow me, 
He said stand up and copy me.

When Jesus said come follow me,
He said to care for the orphans and widows for me.

When Jesus said come follow me, 
He said to demonstrate my love to the lost.

The lost is who He wishes to save,
those who do not know Him today.

The lost is who He wishes to save,
can you help Him with that today?

Can you tell the people that Jesus died for them?
Can you show the people that Jesus loves them?
But you can not show love that you do not have.

So meet with God each day.
for He is love and the only way.

He will give you His love today
to share with them and show them the way.

So when Jesus said to follow me,
He called you to love and light the way. 

Love is the key that reaches the heart.  Please meet with God each day, exercise your spiritual muscles and ask God to help you reach out to others.  Thanks for listening.

God's Ways are not our ways.

Eno Family Mission Report

God's Ways are not our ways.

We have been a bit silent lately. We have been praying and searching for insight from God. Something we have learned is that God's ways are not are ways. We came to Bolivia expecting that God would have us stay for a long time. What we have found in the past month and a half is that God had other stuff for us to do here and while long term may have been the ultimate goal, God has asked us to move on.  He has shown us that he has other work for us to do in another part of the world.  Currently we are looking at another project to join.  The project is located in Guyana.  We will be visiting the project soon to make sure that is where God wants us to be.  Currently we are wrapping up things here in Bolivia.  Our biggest remaining obstacle is importing our pallet of personal stuff, which, if we would have known before hand how much money and work it has taken, we would never have done.  The pallet has been a source of strife and problems right from the beginning.  God has taught us patience (which we thought we were getting good at when we had kids) and he has taught us how to work at not getting angry and how to love in a different way.  We feel both battered and bruised and our emotional tank is almost completely empty.  The more we cling to God, the more we are strengthened.  However the devil works hard to get us to move away from God and he has won on occasions.  It reminds us how much personal time with God is important.  We ask for your prayers as we walk this new path that God is leading us down.  We ask for you to remember to lift us up as we strain to maintain our relationships with God, fight the devil and move forward where God leads. 


Some new things that are happening with the family.

Chris is studying for his commercial Pilot rating in between running to town to work on the pallet situation and buying food for us.  Other than that, he is helping out at home with cooking and spending some much needed time with Corey.

Crystal is basically maintaining the house, trying to plan for upcoming activities and mainly just surviving.

Corey has taken to pretending all of the time.  If we are not paying attention due to cooking or such, he is pretending he has a baby doll and caring for it, or he is making airplanes, or playing on lily pads (jumping on the couch cushions on the floor).  Corey also has taken to reading.  He can identify almost all of his letters and he is getting better at talking at times in Spanish and he just loves to sing.  He is in such a fun stage.

Cara has taken to following her brother almost everywhere.  Corey gets upset at times but most often he is sharing and caring for Cara.  It is so precious to watch.  Cara has also begun walking very short distances without hanging on.  She is a speedy crawler and any chance she gets to crawl out the door, she takes it.  She is such a social butterfly and loves to make people smile and laugh.  She says "mama" and "dada" all of the time and she routinely calls for Corey by saying "uh".  Her favorite thing is to talk to people on the phone and over skype, it is the cutest thing.  She is learning sign language and can already say "more" and she can almost say "please" without prompting.

Overall, our family is doing well, we are enjoying the time we have with each other and we are looking forward to spending time with friends and family this summer.

Our plans for the summer consist of spending time at Minnesota Campmeeting in Hutchinson, MN.  Then we will spend time at the Upper Columbia Conference Campmeeting in Spangle, Wa.  The next two weeks will be spent in Walla Walla area visiting with as many people as we can, sharing about our plans for further mission work at some of the churches and celebrating the kids birthdays.  Then on to the Central California Campmeeting near San Jose,Ca.  After that, plans are a bit up in the air.  Chris will be flying to MN for a week or two where he will work with his dad and Corey will spend that entire time with his Grandma Eno.  Cara and I hope to be visiting friends and family.  Sometime in there, Chris hopes to finish up his commercial pilot rating and if God allows, he hopes to gain his flight instructors rating.

Thank you to all of our friends, family and supporters.  We are encouraged when we see your support.  We look forward to seeing as many of you as we can before moving to our next project that God lead us to.

much love from the Eno family
