  • Ross Family January 2019 News

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you for your prayers on our behalf. Joan and I count it a privilege to serve with you here in Oaxaca. God regularly answers your prayers for us providing health, safety and open doors for the gospel.

    We have recently been encouraged with indications that we could possibly be given permission to use a vacant government hangar on the airport here. The new Airport Administrator suggested it in a meeting and a friend who is interested in our ministry delivered our request to the new President of Mexico. A place to do maintenance on our airplanes has been part of our prayer requests for several years now. Please continue to pray!

  • Ross Family May 2018 Ministry Update

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you so much for your prayers. We know that God hears our prayers and answers them in His perfect time.

    Last week we finally got the paperwork to fly the Cessna 182 to our Repair Station. This should be the last step on a long process to get an Airworthiness Certificate for the airplane which will allow us to put it into service. Please continue to pray that things will go forward without any further delays. We hope to be able to report next month that we have it in operation. The Cessna 182 is a four place airplane which is significantly less expensive to operate than our six place airplanes. We hope to be able to reduce some of our costs when we do not need the capacity of our larger airplanes.
