Missionary Medical Evacuation Assistance​

  • Injuries  and illness can happen to anyone anywhere and at anytime - and this includes missionaries, pastors and christians who travel in the ministry. Medical emergencies are a challenge in the USA where ambulance service and excellent medical treatment are readily available in most of the country. Such may not be the case on the foreign mission field. Medical emergencies can be devastating if not life threatening.
  • Have you ever wondered how missionaries would get proper and adequate medical care in case of emergency that requires inpatient care? In the event that a missionary must be moved for treatment, can they choose a particular hospital that would meet their needs at that time? If a missionary requires evacuation back to the USA, how will that happen and to which hospital will they go? Will this all happen in a timely fashion? What will be the cost? And the bigger question is, "What is the cost of not evacuating them when needed?"
  • AMI strongly recommends that sending churches obtain a medical evacuation membership for their sent missionaries. More information about what this means is available on the Medevac Ministry page.       
Missionary Aviation Survey
The objectives for our survey of missionary aviation are:

  1. To determine who is using aircraft in support of the church's mission and her missionaries.
  2. To determine what type and how many aircraft are being used.
  3. To determine where those aircraft are and where those aircraft fly.
  4. To develop a database to assist in bringing together those with urgent needs and those with assets to meet those needs.

Preliminary results have identified 167 aircraft serving 45 countries under 22 organizations that could be available for operations upon request. There are an estimated 600 aircraft thought to be involved in missioanry aviation. Our efforts to identify and locate them will continue.

If you or your organization uses aircraft in support of missionary activity and would be available to do so in urgent and emergency situations, please take a few minutes to complete the survey form so we may add you to our database. ALL INFORMATION IS STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND WILL NOT BE RELEASED BY AMI WITHOUT THE EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT OF THE ORGANIZATION OR INDIVIDUAL. Thank you for your assistance in this project.

Alert Notification System
This system will be configured to enable churches, mission agencies, and missionaries to directly contact AMI with a request for help in a timely manner. Once notified, AMI will then contact the appropriate organizations/individuals to begin the coordination process. In all of this, time is of the essence.
Aviation Missions, Inc. provides basic training seminars in emergency preparedness.

This training will introduce participants to the principles of crisis management, familiarize them with resources available to better equip missionary teams and church leaders, and involve case studies of actual incidents.

The theology of preparedness will be discussed and Biblical examples used to discuss crisis avoidance, mitigation and management.

“We wish to neither impose on God’s sovereignty nor second guess His providence.”
