Aviation plays a vital role in the ministry of helping to spread the Gospel of Christ all over the world. The role of missions aviation is to assist the work being done by missionaries, including the pilots themselves, in reaching the world for Christ. Missionary pilots provide transportation for ministry as well as haul cargo of various types, like mail and food, to people in remote places where cars and trucks cannot go. There are still many places on this earth unreachable by anything but walking or by airplane. Even in places where other transportation is available, the speed of an airplane can make a life-changing difference.
