Dawson, Ryan and Jenny

From: $25 – subscription plan available

Ryan and Jenny Dawson serve as dual-member missionaries with SAM and Mission Padamo Aviation and Support (MPAS).

Ryan and Jenny grew up in Venezuela as children of missionaries. Jenny moved to Venezuela as part of a mission aviation family. Ryan was born there as a third-generation missionary. He grew up in the jungle context.

They joined MPAS in 2011 hoping to serve together as a mission aviation family in Venezuela. However, given the escalation of the political and social crisis, the possibility of that goal began shrinking rapidly. While praying about their clear call to ministry, they took the step of faith to attend a year of language school in Costa Rica. During that year, they connected with South America Mission and our SAMAIR program.

Now, the Dawson family is assigned to SAMAIR Peru. They serve the local church via mission aviation throughout the Eastern jungles of Peru. Their hearts beat for the advancement of the gospel as well as the role of the church in the establishment of God’s kingdom on Earth.

    Ministry: SAMAIR Peru

    Imagine an aerial view of a Cessna 206 floatplane, suspended above the backdrop of an Amazon River tributary with a remote village on its flooded banks. In that view, all the pieces come together and convey aviation’s integral role in the ministry of South America Mission: transporting fulfillers of the Great Commission to the hard-to-reach places, to the people in those remote, village homes, with the good news of Jesus.
