JAARS provides off-the-grid logistical solutions to help make Bible translations possible, and they do so using pilot training, mission aviation services, remote technology, and communications to make it happen. For decades JARRS has landed planes on narrow rivers and towering mountains. They have outfitted boats and vehicles to reach villages that rarely see an outsider. They have set up radios in the rainforest. Satellite uplinks in the desert. Makeshift recording studios and theaters on islands and mountains alike. Over and over, they have watched God pave the way for people to translate and share his Word anywhere on earth, and your family can go and experience some of the same things at their headquarters. Ride in a helicopter or a five-seat plane. See how people get the internet in the rainforest. Record your voice into the JESUSfilm. You’ll get an up-close look at Bible translation—and how JAARS makes it possible, even in the most remote and difficult places on earth.
