In Haiti working with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) who shares the love of Jesus Christ through aviation and technology so that isolated people may be physically and spiritually transformed.
Personal Journey - Call to Christ
Tim: I was raised in a small farming community in upstate NY. I grew up in a bible believing family and was led to Christ when I was 5 or 6 years old. It was plainly explained that I was a sinner in need of a Savior and I knelt at a folding chair, confessed my sins, and put my faith in Christ.
Catherine: I grew up in Pensacola, FL. I professed Christ as my Lord and Savior at the age of eleven through Bible study with my brother. He baptized me in the camp pool that summer.
Call to Missions Service
Tim: My interest in missions was fueled by the numerous missionaries that would come and speak at our church. I committed myself to a life of service at summer camp when I was 12. Through reading aviation biographies God began to give me a real desire for reaching the lost through the tool of aviation. I started flying at 16 yrs. old. Being from a large family, my parents didn't have the money to support my new habit so I began praying for work. I prayed "Lord if you want me to fly, would you show me through giving me a job where I can earn enough to take 1 lesson a week.” God supplied a job working on a farm where I made just enough money to fly for 1 hour a week, an exact answer to my prayer! At 17, I joined a special response team and was trained in Paramedics, Firefighting, Police Scuba search and recovery diving, land search and rescue, flight, and disaster relief. At 18, the Lord really opened my eyes and heart towards disaster victims and it was the first time that I saw severely hurting people and how open they were to the Lord. Through all of this I know God has prepared me for serving with MAF in Haiti. The Lord’s confirmations continue to occur and this time of “deputation” has been a real time of faith building where God has shown us His favor and hand in our journey. Praise the Lord!
Catherine: My exposure to overseas missions had been very limited. All the missionaries I knew of were male preachers and since I was focused on medicine I didn’t see how I could be used as a foreign missionary. Until meeting Tim in 2000, I had never considered overseas missions because I was never going to be a “male preacher”! Tim told me about a very practical mission organization that he was pursuing which used airplanes to help share the gospel and meet physical needs. Marrying Tim, I knew that service in overseas missions was likely in our future and the Lord revealed how, as a Physician Assistant, I could serve Christ. I have been blessed to work in Infectious Disease, specifically HIV, Hepatitis and TB medicine. Working with HIV+ patients has grown my compassion for their suffering. Looking back on the past five years of my work career I never could have planned how well this training and experience could prepare me for ministering in Haiti.
