Taking the Gospel to the ends of the Earth, overcoming barriers, deserts, jungles, mountains, it all started in earnest after World War II. Mission Aviation was born from the need for missionaries to reach people in the remotest places on the planet. Using small aircraft, these highly skilled pilots began accessing isolated areas previously unreachable by ordinary means.

Masa FL is determined to follow the call God is sending and support these missionaries.

The Great Commision gave us purpose under God's dominion and Jesus Christ was very straightforward about bringing the word to the farthest ends of the world. Masa FL believes that by supporting Mission Aviation efforts it also supports the mission of bringing the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

THE GREAT COMMISSION

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20



Missions and the Mission Aviation efforts MASA FL supports are not the final word in church goals, but are a necessary thing in this world. Mission efforts exist and continue to exist to ultimately bring Worship to Our Lord and Savior, but Worship can not exist in parts of the world if the Word is not resident in those parts of the world. Missionaries do much more than just bring food or supplies to third world areas, they bring the Word of God with them being obedient to Christ in his command to "go and make disciples of all nations".

It is important that each of the missions Spreading the Word be truly excited about bringing Glory to God and not just good will to men, this being the goal of each

missionary and the church as a whole. If this is not the goal man will not be served well and no Glory of these efforts will be given to God - defeating the efforts of missions, spreading the Word and anything existing down the line.

With the understanding of the place of Worship in the mission effort and the need to be passionate about Glorifying Our Lord in these efforts MASA FL places the actions to help Spread the Word of God as a high priority over just the desire to fly people in and out of remote places but rather to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth as a vital piece of this puzzle.

Opening doors to new possibilities locally and out on the mission field. Masa FL wants to support Mission Aviation efforts by helping to open doors to new people that want to get involved in different ways, ultimately opening doors to new efforts and resources that may not have been available before seen by those who want to get involved.

CHRIST DIED FOR ALL MANKIND

And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation." Revelation 5:9



Christ died for us, bought us with His blood. He opened the door for life everlasting and a way to the Father as "only through Him". He came to communicate His purpose and open the door to even more than what were originally considered His people.

In that same way of communicating MASA FL wants to open the door to people who may have thought "missions" are only for evangelists or preachers or those with Biblical degrees. Masa Fl wishes for those who would hear and see to open thier hearts and understand we all have a purpose within the "Body of Christ" and it goes way beyond just preaching the word.

As the scripture above states, "persons from every tribe and language and people and nation", clearly stating one reason WHY opening doors to those people previously not aware of mission aviation efforts or those who have not been shown the Word of God, furthering what was previously stated above.

Allowing those who are directly involved in the Mission efforts tell their testimony on the stage at Sun n Fun, MASA FL opens doors to opportunities that will continue to open more doors as God's plan unfolds down the line.

Imagine the doors that can be opened!

Ultimately, MASA FL wishes to support the efforts of those in the mission field by bringing people together to share in the message of mission efforts with those who would hear. The opportunity MASA FL organizes brings support that could not exist if the efforts were not allowed to be seen and heard by those who may help.

UNITY & MATURITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. Ephesians 4:14-16



Beyond Spreading the Word to more people who have not had the privelage of hearing and beyond opening new doors to new opportunities locally and in the mission field MASA FL wants to help support the efforts in place now and help these missions to continue with their efforts.

Most people are not aware of what is already taking place around the world and how aviation is being used to reach these people. MASA FL helps educate those who come to Sun n Fun, of these efforts and build valuable relationships with pilots and those in the aviation industry.

Support can be found in so many ways to continue efforts in place as well as further their reach. New interest gained by exposure of the mission details allows efforts to continue as changes take place in missions and the people who work within them, the technology needed to get to these remote places and the upkeep of current aviation equipment.

The exposure gained by coordinating and supporting the efforts of bringing missionaries to Sun n Fun helps build the Body of Christ and allows each part to do its work under the purpose given by God.
