During September FCAP-LTP/LTTP in the Philippines is celebrating their 19th year of ministry among their airline/aviation co-workers. As a way of expressing their heartfelt gratitude to God for His faithfulness in sustaining them through the years, they decided their celebration would include mission work at Sitio Cacabay, Ternate Cavite, a small community of people living in extreme poverty conditions. They do not have potable drinking water and no electricity at all. Road access is via rough terrain and not passable to ordinary vehicles, especially during the rainy season. Income is limited. Getting an education is also a challenge for them, leading to a very high illiteracy rate.
It was the desire of this FCAP group to reach out to these people by sharing the Gospel and providing them with the basic need of potable drinking water. FCAP leadership there unanimously decided to donate one deep well hand pump. Give thanks for God’s provision for that! Katie Wells, a United Flight Attendant based in Chicago, went to be with the group for this outreach and celebration. As expression of their gratitude for Katie’s presence with them, they dedicated the well as “Katie’s Well.” The photos here provide a glimpse of their time together!
What a blessing it was to receive these photos from our FCAP family in the Philippines … a wonderful reminder that God continues to work in and through the lives of His people throughout the world. This month FCAP-Philippines is celebrating their 19th anniversary. Katie Wells, a United Air Lines flight attendant based in Chicago, traveled to the Philippines to join them for this time. As a major part of their celebration, the group chose to minister to the spiritual and basic needs of people at Sitio Cacabay, Ternate Cavite, an area in need of potable drinking water, electricity, education, and much more.

Following their Workplace Training on June 19, FCAP-Newark writes the following: “The Lord has done it. We are the first in EWR to have the training ‘On the Job…God’s Way.’ I am thankful for all the prayers and effort that was put into making it a success…. To God be the glory. We had eight in attendance plus Monix and son. From the looks of things, the son is a leader in training as he gently participated in our discussion…. We covet your constant prayer as we slowly lift off from the ground. We had a blessed time together. Already looking forward to the next time, hopefully at the airport.”
Pictured above are the attendees: Susan Varipapa and Aretha Slade (both involved with FCAP since the 80’s), Barbara James, Carlita Iatroy, Borbor Zolue, Kawasi Agyemang, Pilar Gomez, Monix Mathieu and his son. (Not pictured is Elaine Haskins.) We do look forward to seeing what God will do in and through this group in the days to come.
Our June Issue of IN THE JETSTREAM, entited How God Gives Value to Work, is now available. It is written by Paul M. Curtas, General Director of FCAP.
A number of years ago now, several employees at the international airport serving Grand Cayman began praying for the addition of an Airport Prayer Room there. That vision is now becoming reality. Our contact in Grand Cayman, Marlene Moore-Ebanks, shares the following: “I am so grateful God is awesome and faithful and has kept me and I am still here and living to see this day. A great day in our history. The room is not yet finished as a lot of construction is going on upstairs. However, this sign is now up. Praise the Lord!”
If you are traveling in and out of Grand Cayman, please watch for more information about the completion and availability of this chapel. For updates, you also can email Marlene. We know they would appreciate your prayers as the room is completed and put into use for God’s glory.
