His vision and fortitude have been the launching pad for Mission Padamo Aviation and Support. In addition to his tireless work on the aviation program, Michael pours himself into men’s discipleship, Bible study and teaching, missionary trips to other villages to evangelize, train, and encourage Yanomamö leaders and believers, and base upkeep, leadership, and maintenance. As director of the Yanomamö school, Keila focuses much time and energy on training the Yanomamö teachers, creating materials for the school, and teaching the children in both Yanomamö and Spanish.
