This ministry has been richly blessed over the years. In the late 1970’s, Rollingbrook Christian Retreat, located south of Fayetteville, GA, became home for the Fellowship of Christian Airline Personnel International Office. Following the home going of our founder, Joe Ivey, we continue to experience a wonderful relationship with those who continue the Rollingbrook ministry and maintain the property here. This week they used our newly renovated room for a meeting. We thank the Lord for these families (Pictured l-r: Rachel and Walter Ivey, Carl Avrit, Angie and Andrew Provence, Julie and Dave Kilgore and Phyllis Avrit).
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.
