56 Henry’s Space Flight
Explaining that space flight is not the highest
calling for a pilot, astronaut Patrick Forrester
took a piece of Nate Saint's Piper PA-14 onboard
the space shuttle "Discovery," which lifted off
from Kennedy Space Center on Aug. 28 and is
now docked at the International Space Station.
NASA took the small piece of missionary history
(a piece of aluminum donated by Steve Saint) to
spotlight missionary aviation. After returning to
earth, it will be sent to the Missionary Aviation
Fellowship Museum in Nampa, Idaho where the
rest of 56Henry is on display. "Bringing attention
to and renewing interest in missions would be a
great result of this experience," said Forrester.
"My deepest intent is to honor Nate Saint, the
Saint family and all missionaries around the
world."
Parting Thought
"We are all called to serve God in some
manner," -Astronaut Patrick Forrester
