New Place, New House, New Friends

yes, we again moved! Since after the earthquake in Palu, our former home, we can not lieve there anymore. All our close friends have moved and we needed to find a place for our son to live, so he can do school together.

Our leadership, desited for us that we move to our other base in Indonesia. We are living in Wamena on the island Papua right now.

We have a big team here and it is great. Our son has a class made, which my wife is also teaching at home.

Language Study

Since November we are studying the local Language. So far we have settled in the new inviroment. Until April we have time to do so, before Matthias will move on in getting to know the new type of helicopter and landing places.

Our son and Lisa are meeting regulary with new friends for play dates.

Thank you for partnering with us.



we finally know were we are going! Asia-Pacific is our new destination with Helimission.

Please pray for a safe transition and also for an easy language learning.

Thank you for partnering with us. God bless

New Steps

We left Ethiopia in January with a sad and happy eye. We are on furlough now and looking into a new country, our organization is putting us. Please pray for peace and wisdom for us and the leadership, while new thinks are discussed.


My First Mission

yes, I got to fly into the bush. The mission was to fly a camera-team, a veterinarian,  two evangelists and a nurse with her husband. The idea was to stay for two night. So we needed tent´s, water, food, etc. and all very light weight, because the elevation we wanted to take of with the helicopter was 6000 feet. The temperature at this elevation is around 30 to 35 Degree Celsius. Very High and very Hot = less performance. Well, enough with aerodynamics…
