Lift up John and Kathryn Boogaard, a pilot/mechanic family serving in Kalimantan, Indonesia with their four children. John recently flew a 6-month-old baby named Aldo from his village to get medical care. Aldo struggled to breathe normally. John was grateful for the clear weather so that he could fly at lower altitudes to help Aldo breath a little easier. Kathryn met Aldo and his parents at the hospital and helped them get settled in the MAF hospital guest house. The parents were grateful because being outside their jungle village was all new for them. Pray for Aldo’s recovery.
