sharing the gospelAn aviation ministry that serves missionaries and provides disaster relief is expanding its ability to transport the gospel farther around the globe.

In 1994, Everett Aaron was at the West Monroe, Louisiana airport where he had a vision: a large number of airplanes, filled with food, medical supplies, and Bibles, lined up on the tarmac. In the vision, he also saw Christian missionaries waiting outside the planes – but they did not board.

Through that vision, Aaron tells One News Now, the Lord impressed on him to help those “stranded” missionaries spread the gospel.

Hence the Louisiana-based ministry Judah 1 was born.

With several aircraft in its growing fleet, including a little Cessna 414 and a 120-passenger MD83, Judah 1 is currently working with the FAA to acquire a second large aircraft in early 2021.

“The entire purpose of Judah 1 is to transport missionaries and their supplies,” Aaron says. “And, of course, because we are missionaries ourselves, we obviously will be preaching the gospel whenever we go into these areas with missionary groups as well.”
