His Faithfulness Reaches to the Skies
The story of a missionary pilot
"Need a faith lift? If you're inspired by true stories of God showing up in the lives of real men and women, you won't want to miss His Faithfulness Reaches to the Skies by Forrest Zander. Engine failure at 7,000 feet over South American jungle with no place to land? Cancer? Friends mistaken for drug smugglers and jailed in a foreign country? In these situations and many more, God demonstrates His love for His children. A great read for yourself-a perfect gift for a friend."
Bernie May, Former President of JAARS, Former President of Wycliffe, Founder of The Seed Company
"If you want an inspiring account of how God can use a man who has his heart set upon serving Christ, no matter the cost, you must read His Faithfulness Reaches to the Skies. As a missionary pilot in several South American countries, Forrest Zander replays the joys, sorrows, and unique challenges of aviation in the Amazon jungle. His stories warm the heart and build conviction. Read with caution-for God may use it to challenge you to invest your life in the unmet need of this lost world."
J. Paul Nyquist, Ph.D., President, Moody Bible Institute
"...you are meeting the real Forrey in this book, fun loving, yet serious about his life with Jesus and with an infectious love for God, His Word and the people God brings into his life, wherever they are! This fast moving book will both reassure and challenge you in your walk with God."
Martin Huyett, Executive Director, Aramaic Bible Translation
"His Faithfulness Reaches to the Skies is a significant read. You will laugh at times and weep at times. Throughout, you will see God's faithfulness to the Zanders as well as their faithfulness to God's call upon their lives. It will also send you to your knees asking God to work in your own heart."
Rev. Burt Kettinger, Sound Servant Ministries
"A great example of a servant totally committed to the Lord. It will make you cry and laugh and you will find it hard to put the book down."
Bill Dillon, Founder & President Inner City Impact, Founder & President People Raising
"In His Faithfulness Reaches to the Skies, Forrey Zander puts readers in the co-pilot's seat for one of the most harrowing-and important-jobs in all of missions: that of the aviators who transport people, food and supplies into and out of the most remote and dangerous places on earth. His thrilling stories will inspire readers to put their own gifts and interests to use in fulfilling the Great Commission."
Bob Creson, President/CEO, Wycliffe USA
"A penetrating examination of a critical sphere of Christian mission by one of its most illustrious practitioners. This book will provide you with vision and practical tools for strengthening your own mission in the world."
Rev. Dr. Daniel D. Meyer
"Forrest Zander writes as he has lived-passionately for Jesus Christ. What a book, what an adventure, what a life, what a Savior!!! His Faithfulness Reaches to the Skies is a captivating account of God's redemptive work in and through a man, a couple, a family and a mission agency sold out to the Lord and His kingdom purposes.... How reassuring to read of God's sovereignty and compassion in all areas of life, even in the tragic loss of a child and spouse. The goodness of God continues to be evident by bringing Wanda into Forrest's life to enable them to serve the Lord together. It's a great read."
Pastor Paul Jorden, Bethel Community Church
"I have read many books in my time-more than I care to remember-but none quite like this. Here is a book that tells a story, a story with honesty and grace, about the life well lived. A life lived for Christ as a missionary pilot. If you love missions, you will love this book. And in it you will find the secret of that life well lived: give it all to Jesus."
