Matt Cousins had two passions as a child: a love for Jesus and a love of airplanes. When he met a missionary pilot at a summer camp as a child, he began to feel prompted to pursue a career in aviation. God directed each step of Matt’s path, miraculously providing him with opportunities to further his education in the field.
Though his childhood call was to become a missionary pilot, Matt’s career led him in a different direction. So after a 17-year career with the U.S. Air Force, Matt and his wife, Kiara, were faced with a choice — pursue a dream job with the Air Force in Japan or serve at the JAARS headquarters in Waxhaw, North Carolina.
