Two men, Yuspiter Yambung and Nomad Nelman, and their families who have been in training at NTM Aviation in Arizona are preparing to return to their homeland.
On Feb. 20, Yuspiter received a letter denying his visa extension and giving him 30 days to leave the country.
Yus had officially finished his aviation training and was presented with a certificate.
Yus and his family are sad to be leaving, but excited to be returning home. His wife, Fitria, is very excited at the thought of seeing family members she has not seen for eight years.
The family will leave March 17 for the Asia-Pacific region. Yus plans to return later this year to attend Bell Helicopter maintenance school.
Because of the experience with Yus' visa, NTM Aviation administrators thought it necessary to re-evaluate Nomad's situation. Having received no response about his extension request for almost ten months, it would be reasonable to expect the same answer that Yus received.
Nomad and his wife, Vanti, are expecting another child and with that in mind the decision was made for them to return home at this time as well.
Nomad finished his training last week and they are now packing and will leave the USA on March 23.
Please pray for these families as they pack, return to their homeland, and become involved in ministry there.
