Dwayne King in a radio discussion tells us about Kingdom Air Corps (www.kingdomaircorps.org) which he founded and leads. Located in Alaska, Kingdom Air Corps hosts a group of certified pilots in training to fly safely in primitive conditions to advance the Gospel of Jesus. His ministry includes working with Eskimo/Native young people wherein some of them have flown solo, flying to Russia across the Bearing Straights from Alaska, and developing the first Russian missionary airplane and first Russian pilot for it. Much of Dwayne’s adventuresome life is reflected at www.kingdomaircorp.org.
My new relationship with Dwayne became very personal when I learned that he and my son, David Hendrick, had served the Lord together and became close friends in Siberian region of far southeastern Russia, in the city of Khabarovsk. You should have seen Dwayne’s face when David surprised Dwayne in joining us for lunch in west St. Louis, MO) County! What a reunion!
From Dwayne’s bio on his website, www.kingdomaircorps.org …… In 1991, Dwayne made one of the first missionary airplane flights to Provideniya, Far East Russia and made 14 other flights in subsequent years. He and Carolyn moved to Khabarovsk, Russia to work with the Russian Baptist Church in October 1993 and remained there until March 1999. As field superintendent for SEND Far East Russia, working directly under the leadership of the Russian Baptist Church, Dwayne and Carolyn helped start and build new churches, train new leaders through Far East Russia Bible College, and recruit construction teams, teachers and new missionaries….
To Dwayne’s knowledge, Kingdom Air Corps has now trained the first Eskimo/Native teenagers to solo airplanes, with an ultimate goal that they will also advance the Gospel of Christ through their flying 907 232 1027
