A New Year Brings New Opportunities for Hannah and Noah

Greetings readers and followers in this fresh year of 2018!  With a new year comes new opportunities, and today I am excited to share with you that I have been accepted as an Assistant Team Leader with Teen Missions International!                                                                                                  I have been involved with Teen Missions International for many years now.  My mom went on a Teen Missions Trip to Kenya in 1991.  In 2014, our family went to Zambia, which fueled my interest to go on a Teen Missions trip to Australia in 2015.  There I helped build a wood frame chapel for a mission base on the Pacific coast.  In 2016, I returned to Teen Missions, this time traveling to Ecuador in South America.  Although I did not participate in a Teen Missions trip in 2017, my sister, Hannah, traveled to Nepal with Teen Missions International.                                                                                                                                   This is my last year of high school, and before I engage with the busyness of college life (hopefully at Cedarville University here in Ohio) I wanted to go on a Teen Missions trip again.  This time, I will not be going as a team member, but rather I shall move forward with my leadership skills and become an Assistant Team Leader! Although I will certainly participate in work and evangelism opportunities, my primary focus as a team leader will be the youth on the trip.  I will strive to provide them with the same wonderful experience that my sister, mom, myself, and countless others have experienced over the years. 

However, as many of you are familiar with from past years, these missionary trips require no small amount of funds.  To compound on that this year, both my sister and I desire to go on trips, which means we both need to raise funds simultaneously.  I have no fear of this though, since God has always provided me and my family through the years, and I have faith that He can send me and my sister overseas as well.  As a leader, I pay a slightly different trip cost than the team members, so I need to raise roughly $3,600.  If you wish to donate online, simply click this link: . You will need to put my name and team number #18007 in the form.  Please note that you cannot donate to my sister and me at the same time, you will need to fill out the form for me and my sister individually, if you choose to do so.  If you would rather not donate online, please email me at and I would be happy to mail you a support packet.
 Keep reading to read my sister's post about her Teen Missions opportunities!
Thank you and may the Lord bless you all,
Noah Adelsberger
Note: Teen Missions has asked me to not share where I am going online.  Team leaders can change teams according to the needs of Teen Missions.  However, if you email me, or message me on Facebook, I would be happy to tell you where I am going.  

Greetings, friends!
I am happy to say that I've seen God move in marvelous ways this past summer. After we finished our training in Florida, my team and I went to Nepal. Once we arrived, we began work at the orphanage. We were beginning a new building that would house a kitchen and rooms for the kids. The first thing we did was bend rebar to be tall supporting beams for the walls. After that, we moved on to digging a monstrous footer 5' deep by 5' wide. The reason it had to be so big was because of the potential earthquakes in the area. We stood the beams in the footer and poured cement all around them. After that, we would have backfilled the footer, but our time was up and we returned home.                                                                                                                                                                            Now, I am quite eager to announce I feel called to go back with Teen Missions and serve. I've signed up to go to Mongolia. Mongolia's 3rd religion is Christianity, about 1.75% of the population. My team and I will be running a 2 week long Boot Camp, training kids in the capital to go out together and spread the good news with the Mongolian branch of Teen Missions. After that, we'll go to an orphanage and do necessary repairs and do whatever we can to help them out.
Of course, to do this I need to raise support, both prayer and money. I need approximately $5,000 to go. If you would like to help me in this ministry, I urge everyone to pray for the kids who will be going all over the world with Teen Missions this summer. If you would like to donate, please click on the link below and enter 'Hannah Adelsberger 18016' as well as the amount you would like to give.  Here's the link:
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about what I'll be doing this summer! 
       By Faith,
  Hannah Adelsberger

UIM 206 Finished!


Well a lot happened between the last post and this one.  I'm sorry I did not do a good job keeping the blog up over the course of this project.  I would encourage you to find me on Facebook for a more regular coverage.  But, I will also try harder to keep this up as well.

After nine moths of work we were able to return the UIM 206 back to them in a much better condition than it was given to us.  We replace the entire nose of the aircraft from the firewall forward actually including the firewall which was made here on site.  The belly of the aircraft was completely replaced with either donor parts from another aircraft or fabricated by us and the tail-cone was reskinned.  New windows we added at the end. UIM will complete the aircraft which will include a paint job.

UIM supports local churches and church planting missionaries int he very mountainous region of Mexico where the closest village could be a 20 hour walk away or a quick 15 min flight.

I am happy that I got the opportunity to serve MMS, the trainees that I was supervising and UIM.  God is going to use this plane to deliver light into the darkness.

Thank you for your prayers and support.  Josh

New project and it is not an engine...

It is a new year and I glad to say the start of a new project.  This 206 was damaged when the pilot landed short of the runway. The nose gear broke off and the main gear were twisted until the gear box and everything around it was broke or damaged.
As you can see the rest of the airplane is fine it will just need alot of repairs in the belly and some new skins on the tail cone and maybe a new propeller.
I have two great guys working with me Brad Hoblit and Glen Evert. Both certificated mechanics and both very skilled. We are looking forward to returning this tool to kingdom work over the coming year.

Hannah's Teen Missions Trip

  Greetings all! As you have read in my former blog post, I have been accepted to go to Nepal with Teen Missions! As my trip as grown closer, I have gotten new details that I can share with you. The purpose of our trip is to continue construction on a 3 story building for an orphanage in Ularbari, Nepal, but first we will meet in Florida for 2 weeks of intensive training at TMI's 'Boot Camp'. Classes in spiritual growth, Bible study, evangelism, music, puppets, and construction will help prepare my team and I for our ministry. On the field, in addition to our work project, we will be involved with evangelism ministry, Bible memorization, Bible studies, and special classes to help us develop goals and spiritual maturity. On Sundays we will share the Gospel through personal testimonies, music, and puppetry in local churches and the surrounding areas.
  At the conclusion of our ministry, we will join other teams for Debrief - several days set aside for fun, rest, and relaxation to prepare us for returning to family, church, and friends. We will also attend classes designed to help us readjust to life at home and get more involved in ministries at our school and home church. After this time, we will return home to share our ministry experiences.
  I am asking approximately 47 friends to contribute $25 a month for 4 months, equaling $100 overall. If you would like to support me in this journey, please go to and enter my name and team number (Hannah Adelsberger 17023) then enter the amount you wish to give. Thank you for considering to support me!
Blessings, Hannah

My debut blog post - Kristi

We realize we haven’t been consistent with our blog updates this year, so we are resolving to have a post for you every week again.  We have had many of you ask for more family posts, so we’ll start there.  And people have also requested to hear from me (Kristi).  Please give me some feedback on my debut post – I don’t really care for writing or blogging, but will do my best to fill you in on some family life. (Be sure to find us on Facebook – Adelsbergers in Aviation – to see even more pictures and everyday life here at MMS and at home.)

 Noah has had a pretty exciting 2016 – some good exciting, some bad…  You already know about his emergency appendectomy in April.  He has recovered fine.  We appreciated your prayers through that ordeal.  Will you please continue to pray with us as we start to see our medical bills?  Our insurance plan has a deductible of $10,000 that we will have to pay.  (A huge thank you to GLBC who has already given towards it!) 

You also know that he was able to spend the summer in Ecuador with Teen Missions.  Thank you to everyone who donated so generously!  As parents, we can’t endorse Teen Missions enough.  It is just wonderful to have your child come home so on fire for God!  Here are a couple pictures of the building site his team worked on.  It is at the site for the new Teen Missions base and will house the new Missionary Bible and Work school for Ecuador youth. We'll try to get him to write a more in-depth post, but for now here are a couple pictures.

When Noah returned, he had a week before classes began.  This year he is doing a full time dual-enrollment program at Ohio State University Newark.  As a high school junior, he is taking all college classes that will be credit for high school and college.  It is mostly funded through the state with only a fraction of out of pocket cost that would normally be incurred when starting college.  Please pray for him as he thinks about the direction he would like to head. 

 And back to the bad-exciting category… last weekend Noah was in a car accident. He missed a bridge at 50mph, jumped 30ft into a concrete embankment...and he wasn’t seriously hurt.  Scared to death and banged up, but no serious injuries. We are so, so thankful God protected him and kept him safe!

We’re honestly hoping Noah has a much duller conclusion to 2016.  I don’t think our nerves can handle too much more excitement like we’ve had :)  But we can report that God has been faithful!
