Paul and Claudette Curtas made it safely to Sydney, Australia. They have been richly blessed by the gracious hospitality of Chris and Julia McDonald and their two beautiful children. (Their youngest is not pictured as he was doing what little boys do best … running around and avoiding the photo shoot!) Chris is a pilot for Qantas and also heads up ACN (Airline Christian Network). His wife, Julia, was a flight attendant in Germany for a number of years prior to their marriage.
Another pilot who flies out of another country was able to join all of them for dinner one evening. He, Chris and Paul spent quite a bit of time talking about ministry in the workplace. This pilot hopes to see a ministry started at his own domicile in the not too distant future. In fact, you can pray about that organizational meeting which is planned for December 7.
It is always exciting to see how God brings such connections to pass in all parts of the world!
Today Paul and Claudette Curtas embark on yet another journey representing the FCAP Ministry. This time travel takes them to Australia and New Zealand, via Los Angeles. In each of these locations they will spend time with FCAPers. Paul will also have opportunity to present our Workplace Training at the Torchbearer’s Business Ministry Leadership Training in New Zealand. Prayers for every aspect of this trip are greatly appreciated. (As many of you know, the flight between Los Angeles and Sydney is extremely long and tiring.)
Recently, Paul and Claudette Curtas had the special opportunity of returning to Columbia, SC where Paul had been invited to speak at the SC Christian Chamber of Commerce luncheon. The evening before, they were also able to enjoy dinner with the faculty and staff of the Business department of Columbia International University. What a great group of people! They went to a fabulous restaurant in Lexington, SC called “Flight Deck.” It was full of aviation history hanging on the walls…neat place and great food. Both Paul and Claudette expressed how blessed they were to be a part of this time.
