Delivery Day

Quest Aircraft Company was blessed by a visit from Franklin Graham as he took delivery of the first Kodiak airplane for his mission organization, Samaritan’s Purse. In a down-to-earth style, Mr. Graham greeted Quest employees and presented the gospel in a straight forward way that I’ve only witnessed by one other man in my life…his father Billy Graham.

Other mission organizations have come to pick up their aircraft in suits and ties, with powerful and fancy DVD presentations of their work. Then one of the chief pilots of the organization usually flies the plane away. I'm always blessed each time I watch these presentations and I'm reminded of why we do the work we do every day at Quest.

But this was a little different. Dressed in his Carhartt jeans, complete with buck knife sticking out of his pocket, Franklin stood armed with his bible and a microphone and did nothing more than share the gospel. He explained the good news of Christ to every employee in that airplane hangar. He told them they were sinners, reassured them that God loved them, and led everyone in a salvation prayer. …Then he climbed into the left seat (pilot in command) of his plane and flew away.
