The presence of SAGErs, or Seniors in Action for God with Enthusiasm, was predominant among the crew of Fox Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church volunteeers for the Mission Aviation Support Association sponsored breakfast.  It took place at EAA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for missionary pilot families on August 4, 2013.  The meal was lovingly cooked by Carol Buchhloz and Bette Koeffler during the night and immediately transported at 5:30 am to the EAA grounds.  MASA had rented a tent and set up a kitchen and dining area for local churches to alternate in serving three meals a day during EAA.  One hundred eighty missionary pilot families had flown into Oshkosh with the help of MASA, founded thirty years ago in Neenah, Wisconsin to assist misionary pilots coming to EAA with transportation, free housing, and free meals, etc.


The breakfast of hash brown casserole, biscuits and gravy, fruit, muffins, juice, granola, and Danish pastry was well received.  A devotional was presented at 7:30 am and an hour later a missionary from Liberty University gave his personal testimony of God's leading in his life.  After cleanup, the crew toured the EAA grounds. The highlight of the breakfast was listening to the stories of missionary pilots who follow God in faith, bringing access to physical healing and the gospel of Jesus Christ to those in the remote regions of the world.
