ABOUT

A Remote Area Ministry Supporting the Seventh-day Adventist Church in its Mission.

OUR MISSION

This project was started in 2005 in a very remote location in Northern Vanuatu, Melanesia. It started out as just a small, family sized ministry, serving this very remote population. But gradually, it has now developed into something involving many people and impacting many hundreds of lives. This small team has fostered & continues to work towards the development of the Matafanga Adventist Primary & Special Needs School, the Wings of Hope Flying Doctor Service and some other upcoming developments. Several Bush Airstrips have also been established, enabling the Flying Doctor Service to reach almost all the islands of Torba Province, northern Vanuatu.

I am here because God has called me to reach the nearest and the neediest. I know that God has equipped me for the task-where else could I feel so fulfilled? Through many providences He has protected me and helped me to pioneer this project with the help of many, many other people. I cannot doubt His leading and His plan for my life. I want to be a channel of His Grace. My cup is overflowing...

Dr Mark

Pilot & Doctor
I am here because I believe God called us here, and I enjoy the satisfaction of helping others. Here in this remote locality I have so many opportunities to use my talents and develop new ones, so it's very stimulating and rewarding. I have also learned so much from the people here, which has helped my world view be more realistic and caring about others and the struggles they face.

Naomi

Missionary
I thank God that He led me to become part of the Turnbull family. I am also thankful for the experience of being part of this medical aviation team. I feel that these experiences are preparing me for my future training and teaching me to become a better person. My aim is to help others in the future and to do whatever God asks me to do for Him.

Natalia

Medical Aviation Assistant
I am here at this mission station to teach practical skills for life in carpentry and construction, christian character development and leadership, and healthy living, and to learn and grow in these areas and shed my selfishness through service to become more like my hero, Jesus Christ.

Ben

Construction & Agriculture
We are here because God called us away from a comfortable, selfish suburban life to learn to serve others more fully like Jesus and use our talents for Him so he can increase them and clean the clutter and rubbish out of our character. We love christian healthy lifestyle principles and enjoy learning and teaching about how Christ gives us the best life, and in abundance.
