Bio:
John has been serving the Lord as a missionary pilot for 33 years. He and Karen lived in Kenya for 5 years and Tanzania for 7 years before moving to Zambia in 1996. They now serve the Lord at Kalene Mission in northwest Zambia with Mission Flight Services. John is the Operations Manager and a pilot/mechanic. Their 4 children have been raised in Zambia. John leads a weekly Bible study for young men from local assemblies, with an emphasis on discipleship training. and encouraging local assemblies. He preaches occasionally at the Kalene assembly and sometimes takes several sessions at the yearly assembly conference or elders conference. Karen's main contribution is as the Flight Follower, tracking the flight whenever John is flying, recording important details. Hospitality, bookroom management, flight scheduling at the hangar, working with a girls sewing class - these are all on Karen's agenda from time to time at Kalene. Both John & Karen have been worshiping with the saints at Chifwafwa, a small aassembly about a half hour from Kalene, for the last 18 months, to encourage them in their walk with the Lord. Karen and John have been involved with Sakeji Mission School over the years, John on the board, and Karen in teaching or on the PTA. Their 4 children all attended Sakeji School. The youngest one, Joshua, is now in the 12th grade at Rift Valley Academy. Julie is in her last year at Spring Arbor University in Michigan. Jeannie completed 3 years teaching at Agape Christian School in The Bahamas. However, she is now serving the Lord full-time, teaching at a Christian school in Rwanda. Nathan is serving the Lord in Zambia with his wife Chichi, discipling young people, doing outreach and preaching on Sundays. He is concentrating on learning the Lunda language. They just had their first born child, {our first grandchild} Jonathan, who was born on Aug 4th.
