Aviation Missionaries to Guatemala

Mercy Wings International

That was then............

The seeds of Living Water Teaching were planted in the country of Guatemala by Pastor Jim and Marion Zirkle; it was 1979.  Cultivated and nurtured by the Zirkles, the work of this ministry has grown to include outreaches in eleven countries around the world.  Sending the Word of God forth by way of Bible schools, evangelistic campaigns, medical clinics, Operation Shoebox, and through the ministries of the graduates of the Bible Institutes in each of these countries.

Mercy Wings International (MWI) was birthed to complement the mission of Living Water Teaching in Guatemala and surrounding countries.  Aircraft would prove to be a valuable asset, on which the ministry mission could move forward. 

The fleet grew to include: single, multi-engine, piston, and turbo-prop aircraft.  After a tragic accident In November of 1998, Mercy Wings would rest until 2008.

Those many aircraft that once served Living Water Teaching and the people of Guatemala have long since been placed into service outside the ministry save one, the last to join the Mercy Wings team, a Cessna T206H.

This is now!

Today, Mercy Wings International again stands ready to serve, providing air services to further the mission of Living Water Teaching by speeding the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Central America.

My name is Chuck Martinez, and I joined the Mercy Wings team in March of 2008.   I am missionary, mechanic, pilot, and director of the renewed Mercy Wings International.

In Latin America aviation remains the most efficient way to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and efficiency is what is needed in these last days.
