LUIS CARL SANDOVAL was accepted to Moody Bible Institute Aviation Program and began Fall 2013 in Spokane, WA. He has completed his First year and has started his second year in the hanger. Ancient Work is excited to be a part of this journey for Carl to become a Missionary Bush Pilot like his grandfather was for over 50 years. Carl has done mission work in and around the Brazilian/Peruvian border in South America and is hoping to continue mission work in that area. The Moody Aviation Program is a 5 year undertaking and produces the best missionary pilots in the country. Not only do they learn to fly (Carl is a licensed pilot), but they also learn how to fix their airplane engines. If you go down in a remote area there is no airplane mechanic around the corner, let alone an airport.
