In the evening of September 7, the Boise International Airport Chapel (under the direction of Warren Milanowski with FCAP-BOI), held its Second Bi-Annual Gathering of Gatekeepers Gala. The focus of this event was to celebrate ten years of ministry through the chapel there, to present vision for coming days/months/years, and to introduce Doug Human who plans to come along side of Warren to help with the work of the Chapel. Through the gracious generosity of individuals and businesses, a number of items were offered for a live and silent auction to help raise funds for the ministry there. It proved to be a most encouraging evening with approximately 80 in attendance.
Some of the items donated for live and silent auctions.
Invitation extended to attendees to become a “Gatekeeper” for the ministry in Boise.

Sharry Milanowski is a wonderful ministry partner, helping and supporting her husband whole heartedly.
As chaplain at the Boise International Airport and FCAP Field Staff, Warren Milanowski extends the following invitation: “The Boise Airport is the gateway to Idaho. A part of the vision of FCAP-Boise is to enlist ‘gatekeepers’ who will prayerfully and financially support the ministry as we go beyond ten years of service at the airport and in the community. Click to register and to join us on September 7 as we celebrate and share the vision of the future.”
We posted in mid February about a 100th birthday celebration for our dear friend, Tommy Taylor. Several of our staff were unable to be at that celebration, so we asked Tommy and his daughter, Debbie Kasmerski, to join us for lunch yesterday here at the office. Time spent with this dear family always is such a blessing. Tommy’s legacy with aviation and the airlines spans many years. He served in World War II, and at the end of the war Tommy was among others who remained in the South Pacific to help establish an airline in the Philippines. Not only was he instrumental in the startup of Philippines Airlines, but also he served as their first Chief Pilot. Upon return to the States, he began a flying career with Southern Airways and retired from there in 1977.
As exciting as these opportunities were, Tommy would be the first to tell you that His relationship with the Lord far outshines anything else. He and his wife, Lanora (now with the Lord), have been an integral part of our FCAP family since its early years. Their smiling faces have always radiated the love of Jesus and warmed the hearts of all who have met them…at our FCAP luncheons in Atlanta, at our International Conventions, in their travels both near and far, and wherever God would take them. We thank the Lord for the legacy this dear man (and his family) are imparting to all of us. We thank the Lord too for the added blessing yesterday of having Nancy Truluck join us. Nancy worked in reservations with Southern Airways … she filled the planes and Tommy flew them!
For over 21 years, Dolores Hunter (affectionately known as “Mama D”) has ministered to flight attendants in the DFW area. Together they have delved into God’s Word, she has encouraged them as she opened her heart and home to them, and she has prayed for them. Recently a group of these flight attendants who have been ministered to by “Mama D” over the years came together to celebrate her 88th birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear “Mama D” … from your entire FCAP family!
Our dear friend, Thomas R. Taylor, recently celebrated a milestone birthday of 100! Tommy and wife Lanora (who is now with the Lord) have been a part of our FCAP family since the early 70’s. Their commitment to Christ and unconditional love for and service to others have been an inspiration and encouragement to many throughout the world. And to this day Tommy still captivates us with very interesting stories from his flying days. Tom retired from Southern Airways in 1977.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear friend!
