Dick Kalman shares this from their recent time together, “There were five FCAP members that met at the Redwood, CA Harry’s Hofbrau Restaurant on October 13 for fellowship. Though the group was small in size, we enjoyed the opportunity to catch up on the many activities in our lives since our last meeting and to recall the blessings of past FCAP conventions. Prayer was given for the ‘great commission’ that signifies the Fellowship of Christian Airline Personnel world-wide outreach in the airline industry. Prayer was also given in appreciation for the dedicated FCAP staff members, We shared how much we missed others of our local FCAP members who could not join us for various reasons but remained in our prayers. It was a special time of sharing.” Thank you, Dick and Tom, for orchestrating this event. A person new to the area and the airline workplace had planned to join them but was unable to do so.
Even in retirement, connections made with others over the years through the airline/aviation industry can continue to be a blessing and a ministry. These retirees have a wealth of experience, both vocationally and spiritually, to share with those still in the workplace, or perhaps just starting out. It is our prayer that those involved with FCAP in the past will continue to be a part of this ministry in the days to come. Ask God to show you how you can do that in your local area. We are available here at the FCAP Office to help … contact email@example.com.
Every day, challenging things happen to each of us, wherever in the world we are. The extra flight attendant is a no-show, so now we are delayed waiting for a reserve to be called out. The emails are down, so now we cannot communicate in a timely fashion. A loved one is ill, and our thoughts are with this dear one.
Every time, there is opportunity to pray to God for His resolution to be accomplished through each of us. Here we see the partial crew going out to breakfast together and one of them says grace before the meal…here is a good time to make phone calls and say, “God bless you” at the end of the call…here is a time to praise God that He will provide devoted doctors to help heal our ill friend or co-worker.
Every chance we have to bring our cares to the Lord and leave them with Him to will and to act will honor Him and point others to Jesus as Lord of our lives. From a human perspective, these are real problems, yet for Christians, we see an opening to be His light in the darkness. Join us, looking to Him, in every moment. (JMA) Consider: “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:6).

Our FCAP Field Staff and Boise Airport Chaplain, Warren Milanowski, writes the following as he shares the photo above: “I have attached a picture of my men’s prayer group, many of whom came to the chapel to pray yesterday (May 8) for airport ministry concerns. Two of the highlights were having the opportunity to pray for and lay hands on our Airport Director, Rebecca Hupp, and Police Lt. Ted Hanson…”
In addition to this, Doug and Roxanne Human were available to pray with many people int he chapel on the National Day of Prayer. Coffee and doughnuts were available for participants, and twelve employees participated. Doug co-labors with Warren as a Chaplain at the Boise Airport Chapel.
On February 7, 2018 we held another “On the Job…God’s Way” Training (Workplace Training #1) in Atlanta. Participants came from Nevada, Virginia, Alaska, and Atlanta. One attendes described the training as being “relevant and refreshing.” He went on to share, “It reminds you that you are not alone and you have the support system plus prayer partners you can count on … It’s a great fellowship! Truly reviving to see oneness of body of Christ in an airline industry. I recommend FCAP because it embodies what our real godly purpose is despite our airline position and company.”
As Cliff Andrews (retired from American Airlines) was flying home after a visit in Asia, he had opportunity to spend time in fellowship with Joel Lee at the Hong Kong International Airport. The two enjoyed time together sharing what God is doing in their personal lives and how He is working in and through the lives of airline people throughout the world. Joel is a pilot with Cathay Pacific and is based in Hong Kong. He and several others lead a Christian group there, the Hong Kong Aviation Christian Union.
In late January the FCAP Office staff had the blessing of having our Field Staff from Boise come visit us here at the office. It was wonderful hearing from our FCAP chaplains (Warren Milanowski and Doug Human), along with Doug’s wife, Roxanne, how God is working in and through their lives. We spent time in prayer and in planning for future ministry. Another thing accomplished together was sitting down to officially sign our individual FCAP Membership forms (photos below). Just a few days ago, they shared with us about exciting answers to prayer, opportunities, and connections within their community that have taken place since their time with us. We thank the Lord for their lives and ministry through the Chapel at the Boise International Airport.
