Bart has had more time to go to the hangar for UIM Aviation and has had the opportunity to get back into the helicopter by doing some scenic flights on the weekend.

He is planning to give some instruction in the helicopter as he is able. This will help him build more experience, as UIM Aviation seeks to acquire a helicopter to be used for Central Mexico. Bart will also be working a couple of days in UIM Aviation’s booth at the Air Venture airshow in Oshkosh, WI in July.

Blake had stem cell therapy on June 8th. They took some of his own stem cells from his abdominal area and reinjected them back into his body. So, now we wait to see what God is going to do in His body. He will start therapy again on the 20th. He is enjoying a break from school and all the studying.

Thank you so much for praying for Blake for the past 2-1/2 years. We all value your prayers so much. We leave on our big trip to Wisconsin on July 5th. We will be celebrating Kim’s parents 50th wedding anniversary. The whole family will be together!

Looking forward to making many great memories! We will also be able to visit our home church while we are there. This will be our first visit since Blake’s injury. Please pray for good health and stamina for us all…this is Blake’s first trip since his accident.
