Flying for Jesus by Lee Carver



Why would an international banker retire early, at the peak of his career, to fly as a volunteer missionary over the Brazilian Amazon?
And where did he get the money to donate a two million dollar airplane?
He might be running drugs from Colombia or smuggling gems from the rich rocks of Minas Gerais. Many Brazilians believed the American missionaries were all CIA spies.

There had to be a reason.








Excerpt

Why would an international banker retire early, at the peak of his career, to fly as a volunteer missionary over the Brazilian Amazon?


About Lee:
For six years in retirement, Lee and her husband Darrel served as volunteer missionaries with a Brazilian organization, Asas de Socorro (Wings of Help), formerly MAF-Brazil. Darrel flew the amphibious ten-seat Cessna Caravan over jungle area half the size of the United States. Their home in Manaus—the largest city in the world with no road to it—was a free guesthouse for missionaries, pilots, mechanics, and medical volunteers. She went on missions, speaks the language, and knows the people whose story she tells.
Lee lived in Brazil a total of twelve years, including two transfers to São Paulo while her husband worked for Citibank. Other foreign postings were Greece, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Indonesia, and Spain. She studied nine languages and visited over forty-five countries. The Carvers now reside in Texas but are still active in Brazilian aviation missions.
Lee is a member of ACFW and president of its local chapter, DFW Ready Writers. She freelances as a grammar/punctuation editor and formats manuscripts for e-book and POD uploads.

News Flash: I now have two books under contract, a fantastic agent just signed me a week ago, and she passed to me a request for a series of three foreign-setting missionary romances. Right down my alley! Okay, so I've never written straight romance genre, but I'm climbing the learning curve. The titles will probably all change, but I'm writing everything under the author name Lee Carver.

That is so exciting, Lee.

I really enjoyed reading the book. Having lived overseas myself, I found many of the stories oddly familiar, even though I was in Africa, not South America.

Hi, Jon. You and Pam might think about sharing your own story. I'm convinced that Christians everywhere are inspired to read how God works to bring salvation to remote people. Your years in Africa would make exciting reading.
