We're staying busy in the shop, and have been working on some exciting projects. We are 30 months into our apprenticeship, meaning we are now eligible to test for our A&P license. It is hard to believe we're so near the end, it has gone by so quickly. But we have learned so much, and feel prepared for the exam process.
At the end of their 30 month apprenticeship, SOAR sends its apprentices to Baker's school of Aeronautics, a two week intensive training and testing course. This will be the last step towards our maintenance training and we will leave Baker's as FAA certified Airframe and Powerplant mechanics. The total cost of this course (including the multiple federal tests) will likely exceed $6,000. This is a huge expense for us, and not one we would have been able to pay out of pocket. Through a series of various donations from anonymous donors, the entire amount is paid for ahead of us. This is a huge prayer answered and a massive weight off of our minds! We are constantly blown away by how the Lord has continued to meet all of our needs as we follow His call on this journey. We are SO grateful for God's people who continue to amaze us with how they step out in faith to give generously and be "senders," meeting the needs of us "goers" without us even having to ask. Classes start Monday morning, so we would appreciate your prayers through the intense and fast-paced training and testing process.
