Remarkable stories of the pioneer days of MAF. "This book is about commitment, searching and personal growth." (Chuck Bennett, MAF President, 1973-1987) Just as World War II was in its final months, Christian airmen in the armed forces realized that aviation could increase the range and effectiveness of the effort to reach the world for Christ. No longer in the employ of the government, Christian military pilots wanted to offer their specialized skills to the task of reaching the isolated and otherwise unreachable people of the world with the Gospel. Charlie Mellis was not just one of those pilots, he was an MAF pioneer. This is his story, skillfully, lovingly written by his wife Claire who shared his remarkable life and ministry on a daily basis.
