Fred & Lydia Holcomb

In May of 2020, Fred and Lydia Holcomb, and their five boys, moved from Bolivar, Missouri to Soldotna, Alaska to begin serving with Missionary Aviation Repair Center (MARC).  MARC’s goal, “Giving Wings to Alaskan Missions,” is focused on expanding the reach of the Gospel across the vast state.  MARC flies people and supplies where there are no roads, supports missionaries and pastors serving in isolated communities, trains mission-minded pilots and mechanics, provides public flight instruction and aircraft maintenance, and runs the FBO to help fund their mission flights. At MARC, Fred is putting his SOAR training to use, serving through flight instruction and aircraft maintenance. During Fred’s training at SOAR, he received his A&P, Private Pilot Certificate, Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot Certificate, Commercial Seaplane, and Certified Flight Instructor. In addition to aviation ministry, the family is very involved in their local church and with a community ministry to men and women in addiction recovery.

Fred and Lydia praise God for how He used SOAR to train Fred in flight and aircraft maintenance, while simultaneously raising prayer and financial support; this allowed for the family to be fully funded and debt-free when they received the invitation to join MARC.

“The Lord provided a way, through SOAR, to make an IMPACT and pave the runway for our family’s prompt departure to serve on the field when the door opened!”

Matt and Abi      

Matt & Abi McWhorter

Matt felt God’s call on his life to be a missionary in early high school, but it wasn’t until his first year of college at Montana Wilderness School of the Bible that he began to understand that the Lord not only wanted him to be a missionary but a missionary pilot specifically.  

Abi was called to missionary aviation at a very early age. As a young girl, she grew up next to a crop-dusting airstrip and was fascinated by everything to do with airplanes.  After hearing the story of Nate Saint and Jim Elliott, the Lord gave her a more direct purpose for her passion for aviation.  

Matt and Abi McWhorter joined SOAR in August 2018. They have both completed their Private Pilot, Instrument, and Commercial Ratings, and their A&P certification. Abi has also received her Certified Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII) License. They are serving with Tanalian Bible Camp and Leadership Center in Port Alsworth, Alaska.
