Aviation ministry is how we enable the gospel and its transformative work to reach the far corners of Bolivia and Peru. There are regions of South America where travel is limited and planes can carry missionaries, workers, and supplies faster and farther than possible by other transportation. SAMAIR exists to increase the reach and influence of the gospel in South America and is a vital link in a mission effort to carry the gospel and church-planting support to remote or less accessible areas.
