Flying With Mark

So as the weeks have passed I (Jess) have gotten to fly with Mark so I can help load and unload people and cargo while keeping all safe during times the helicopter is on.

Yesterday I was thrilled to be escorting some good friends back home after the birth of their first baby.

This is some of my crazy kids greeting us as we landed safely back home after this flight. Hahaha. Notice two dancing on the truck and two plugging their ears! Hahahaha. Love these guys.

Hangin in school

So happy to have help in life! It’s been so refreshing to have someone around to help with with the little one and schooling the big ones. Here’s some pics to show what we are up to!

Hadassah somehow wedged herself in a ditch! She was so proud of herself. Hahaha

Here is our fun Africa game. Believe it or not my kids are thoroughly schooled in African geography! So proud of them.

Thanks to Sarah I can help Mark on a spur of the moment. Some of these thugs may be a quick trip to the hospital for an errand or even to help load and unload patients for the hospital. One day when I came home I saw my people having an outside science lesson! So fun!

Here is my work! I get to be more involved in the helicopter program all around. By the way I’ve started studying for my A&P license. Aviation mechanic!!!! Whew whoo!

This is a picture of a medical flight. I assist in loading and unloading passengers or patients. This time I was just there for back-up as another person was doing the work so I took a few pictures.

I did some sewing for the new helicopter to keep some extra dust out!

Fuel for the Helicopter 

Sunday after church Mark, the baby and I went up to the airstrip to meet a truck bringing fuel.  Some of the fuel comes all the way from the US before reaching Duala, Yaoundé and then us.

What does Mark do when he’s not flying?  People are always curious to know the answer to that question.  Here is another part of the job!
