we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants
for Jesusí sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of
darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the
glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen
vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

This site shows the work of a missionary pilot engaged in bush flying to reach remote tribal people groups with the Good News message from God as written in the Holy Bible. This jungle pilot or "missionary pilot" flying is in support of tribal evangelism by missionaries sent out by their local churches to remote areas of the world. New Tribes Mission functions as a vehicle by which local churches may establish Bible based churches worldwide. Tribal people are taught the Bible in their native language. Our work involves Church planting, translating the Bible into the tribal language and teaching people to read. To accomplish church planting, Chronological Bible Lessons are used which are based on the Firm Foundations series. The flying speeds this work.
Randy & Diana Smyth are the missionaries featured on this site. Diana keeps track of Randy by radio as his Flight Follower and has numerous other roles in helping missionaries with computer problems, education, cooking and assisting guests with their needs. Randy is often out over the jungle or rugged mountains supplying missionaries with food, medicine and encouragement. There are over sixty pages of information and pictures showing people, aircraft, tropical terrain, steep mountain airstrips and swampy low-land jungle. Enjoy!
