“Over the past few years I have not only been a supporter of Samaritan Aviation, but also gotten to know some of their staff and Board members. I even attended one of their Board meetings as an advisor. I enthusiastically endorse their ministry and would encourage you to join the Samaritan Support Team [on an ongoing monthly basis] to make sure they have the fuel they so desperately need as they respond to these crucial and effective ministry opportunities. – Physical and Spiritual lives are at stake!”

– David L. Voetmann

“Allow me to share my appreciation to [East Sepik Governor Allan Bird’s] entire government – and others in the region – who have pledged funding and support to Samaritan Aviation, and the work of all of those who are delivering needed services in rural areas. This reflects sincere and good governance, and care which technology will never replace… Mark Palm, I again extend my sincere appreciation to you, your family, and the Samaritan Aviation team for inviting me to join you in celebration today, and to the provincial government for your continuing support and belief in the work of Samaritan Aviation.”
