On Eagle’s Wings
Since 1985 our church has supported a mission project that benefits the native Americans who live in remote areas of the Northwest Territories in Canada. Their villages can only be reached by small airplanes. In this way, our missionaries (first from LAMP and then from “On Eagle’s Wings”) arrive to minister to these isolated people and spread the Good News.
Besides money, each year the organizers of “On Eagle’s Wings” solicit the aid of Christians in the United States to teach Bible School to the children in these villages as a way of reinforcing the message of the Gospel through music, crafts and storytelling. In 1988 our first team of 3 adults flew to Snare Lake, partly by commercial jet and partly by float plane, to teach in a small isolated village only 150 miles south of the arctic circle; for several years in a row, groups of 3-6 adults from our church returned to teach summer Bible School in Canada.
In the beginning, our main contact with “On Eagles’ Wings” was the founder, Reverend Lee Berry, from Yellowknife, the capitol of Northwest Territories. As well as being an ordained minister, he is a pilot who uses his plane to visit the villages. In May 2008 he retired as Executive Director. The current director is Anne Zimmerman.

Between October to August 2014, we converted a recycled shipping container into a functional medical facility for an impoverished community in Kisumu, Kenya. Life in Abundance (an African-centered NGO) identified the community that received the clinic and mobilized the community to receive and sustain it. We partnered with Homes of Living Hope in the planning and shipping stages of our project. The clinic was shipped in December of 2015 and delivered in February of 2016.
