Missionary pilot dies, three others receive injuries in crash


A missionary pilot with Africa Inland Mission is at home with the Lord following the crash of his AIM AIR Cessna 206, reports MNN.

Frank Toews had been flying with AIM for a number of years, helping missionaries spread the Gospel. The accident occurred on August 1 at about 2:30 p.m. (EAT) near the Nairobi Wilson Airport.

Medical evaluations for the three passengers are ongoing. AIM AIR mechanic Ryan Williams received serious injuries including a fractured pelvis, multiple contusions, and some significant burns. His prognosis for recovery is good.

The other two passengers received minor injuries. According to CNN, Dan Parris and Rob Lehr of St. Louis, MO, were creating a documentary on poverty in Africa. Because the airplane's doors were open to allow filming, Lehr was ejected. He then helped pull the other three people out of the plane. Local residents helped put out the fire, CNN reports.

AIM's mission is the coordination and delivery of safe, reliable, economical air transport service to enhance the ministries of evangelical missionaries, church workers, and Christian relief and development agencies in East and Central Africa.

Christians asked to pray for Toews' wife and four children in this difficult time, and for the future of AIM Air's ministry in Kenya.
