Mission Aviation Day (MAD)

March 5, 2016 will be the return of MAD after a 5 year absence! This is an all day event for UIM Aviaiton. The purpose is to educate the public about Missionary Aviation. We expect around 900 people to attend! Kids activities, special speakers, exhibitors from mission agencies and schools, great food, and airplane rides (Paul will be flying all day) make it a full day. If you are interested in coming to visit and want to volunteer for the day, let me know! We are always looking for help. We appreciate your prayers as we work the next few months to make this event a success.



We are exploring the possibility of adding helicopters! This would open up many new areas of ministry.

  • Bethany’s college bill at Liberty University.  In August, Bethany will be attending Liberty University to major in Sign Language! She has received some scholarships, and has been working to pay for college, but we still have a rather large chunk owed. Should you wish to help out, you can send donations to the Timblin Education Fund at UIM Int. Please pray for safety as Laurel drives her to VA (Aug 14-19th) and she settles into college life with a full academic schedule! She will be taking 17 credits and working, so please pray for her on this new venture.
