Through the centuries Christian missionaries have labored to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to "the uttermost parts of the earth." In carrying God's Word to remote peoples, weeks and possibly months of slow, often dangerous travel was undertaken. Not until recent time has a practical solution to the problem of distance and geographic barriers been available. Today, many missionaries serving in remote parts of the world rely on aircraft to transport them to and from locations where they serve, to bring them supplies while they are there, and to stand by for emergencies. By speeding the missionary to his work, many more people will hear of the love and salvation of Jesus Christ.
