Eight Indonesian pastors arrived in Kalimantan, Indonesia, from Java recently on their way to encourage two German nurses who have been serving in the remote village of Marikoi for over 30 years.
MAF floatplane PK-MCB, “Charlie Brown,” has been serving on Borneo island as long as these nurses have! The Cessna 185 floatplane helped take the group of pastors to the closest village along the Kahayan River. The Dayak people whom the nurses serve are renowned for being socially reserved. So a visit from these warm and friendly pastors, who are of the same church denomination, must have been a breath of fresh air.
Charlie Brown has also been busy flying patients to the hospital, evangelists to remote villages to do outreach, elderly people, school kids, and a few very pregnant ladies.
Whatever the reason for flying, the floatplane is happy to have a role in bringing hope and encouragement along Central Kalimantan’s rivers—and leaving the love of Christ in his wake.
