Teresita (Tess) Tacadena loved the Lord Jesus with her whole heart…and she loved people. She did both well. Tess transitioned to her eternal home last week where we know beyond even a shadow of doubt she was welcomed with the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Tess worked as a Quality Assurance Specialist at Philippine Airlines. Prior to that she worked as a Quality Auditor at Lufthansa Technik Philippines and also worked at Lufthansa Group. Her excellent work ethic was a constant testimony to what was of utmost importance in Tess’s life … that being a personal relationship with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Her passion for sharing Him with others and for encouraging the body of Christ in the airline/aviation industry and beyond was evident through the Bible studies and prayer times she led, through her service for many years on the leadership team of FCAP-Philippines, through her emails, and in her Facebook posts.
All who knew Tess will miss her very much, and we thank the Lord for her life which impacted many for God’s glory. Our prayers will continue for the Tacadena family, our FCAP family in the Philippines, her co-workers, and all who are grieving in this tremendous loss.

This is Episode 1 of a conversation between ACN Director Chris MacDonald and FCAP General Director Paul Curtas.
Our thanks to airline pilot Chris McDonald and the Airline Christian Network (ACN) in Australia for sharing this encouraging video with us.
Faithful service brings glory and honor to the Lord Jesus. Such has truly been the case with our dear Teresita “Tess” Tacadena in the Philippines. She has served Him well through her work at the airlines, through her leadership in FCAP-Philippines over the 19 years of its existence, through the relationships she has built with others, and through prayer. This month Tess retired from her job at the Lufthansa Group in the Philippines (and formerly worked for Philippine Air Lines). An early joint retirement/birthday celebration was held for her by the FCAP family there. Her message in response was this, “Dear Brethren at FCAP-LTP/LTTP, thank you. I will be missing our fellowship. Please continue to serve the Lord Jesus in the workplace. PTL.” As Tess enters this new chapter in life, please uplift her in prayer. She is also facing serious health issues.
Thank you, dear Tess, for your faithful service to the Lord Jesus, to your airline co-workers there in the Philippines, and to all of us in FCAP worldwide. We have been refreshed and blessed greatly through you. Our prayer for you claims this promise:
