Lutheran Bible Translators

We support the Federwitz family, serving in Papua, New Guinea

Jonathan is a pilot who flies Bible translators, their families, and others to and from remote areas within Papua New Guinea. Much of the country is rugged mountainous terrain with no roads. Often in a matter of minutes, Jonathan can fly over a distance that would take hours or days to travel by ground. Missionaries throughout Papua New Guinea depend upon airplanes for their basic travel needs and also for receiving mail and supplies.
