Bible Camp-North and South
Written by David Wolf, UIMA pilot
Attending Bible camp in Mexico or Alaska is a wonderful experience for native youth.  It has amazing similarities in both regions.  There is good food, unique games, wonderful worship music, and fun times with new-found friends.
Most importantly, a caring environment exists where counselors and staff are eager to share the Word of God and the love of Christ with each individual.  The youth experience a safe, abusive-free place where they are respected as a special creation of God.
Camp gives an opportunity for each youth to learn more about themselves and the God of all creation that loves them.  Individuals can express themselves through arts, crafts, and during cabin times.
Another similarity is the transportation to and from camp.  In Alaska, native youth usually live in isolated villages with no roads to the outside.  Many Bible camps in Alaska are also only accessible by air.  In Mexico, the safest and most dependable transportation home from camp is by air.
As a UIM Aviation pilot in Mexico, I have had the privilege of flying many Huichol youth home from camp.  The sparkle in their eyes, the smiles on their faces, and their testimonies from their heart affirm a life-changing camping experience.  In Alaska, I have witnessed the same with hundreds of native campers that have traveled with me to and from their villages.  There, I have been serving as a pilot on-loan with Mission Aviation Repair Center for seven summers.  Olivia has ministered to youth in both regions as well.  She has counseled and taught them first-hand.

God is certainly using Bible camps both in the south and in the north of the North American continent to reach youth for Christ.  God is using the airplane as the means to make this camping experience happen.  We thank the Lord for your prayers and support to make these flights happen.
