MAF Twin Otter Landing Maramuni, Papua New Guinea

MAF is Missionary Aviation Fellowship.

A Twin Otter is a type of airplane.

Papua New Guinea, as you will see in today's click through, is a rough and rugged area which is not a place in which you would want to casually fly an airplane.

The location of the landing we will see today is Maramuni in Papua New Guinea.

The length of the landing strip is 450 meters by 15 meters.

The altitude is 4800 feet.

As you can see -- if you can't use an airplane, getting in and out of this area for emergencies, sickness, supplies, etc. is almost impossible.

That is why MAF provides such an awesome service to remote areas such as this and to remote areas elsewhere in the world.  WOW.  This is not for the faint of heart.

Check this out.

Does God care?

 “And He (Jesus) was in the hinder part of the ship,

Main Street, USA in the 1950s

Today let's take a trip down memory lane.

For some DITers, this will really be a trip down memory lane.

For the rest, this will be an eye opener for sure.

Doubtless, most DIT'ers see the hustle and bustle of big cities and busy life in the 21st Century and think or assume everything has always been as we see it now.

But back in the 1950s it didn't look anything like it does today --

Not by a long shot.

So today let's take a brief glimpse of life as it was in the 1950s --

in what was, at that time, considered "big cities'.

Wow.  what a difference time makes.

This is an important question and the answer is not what you would immediately think.

The First day of 2021


It is another New Year --

Which means it is time to once again make and begin New Year’s Resolutions.

Likely one of your resolutions is ‘to read and study the Bible more this year’.

If so, then you will love this DIT (Daily Interesting Thing).


Because we received an email from Bible Study Tools dot Com telling of study tools they have available for free.

These include Bible Reading Plans, many on-line versions of the Bible, dictionaries, concordances, and more.

These tools will be a great help in reading and studying the Bible this year. 

So if you are interested
