The first Christmas was a season of hope for those who witnessed our Savior’s birth. Out of all the ways God could have sent out His birth announcement, He did it in a way that only the God of the universe could do it. He surrounded a group of shepherds with an angelic choir. God did not announce it to the leaders of the world but to a group of men who were just above lepers in regard to social standing. This was intentional. God has chosen the lowly to reveal the good news of the Gospel. What hope this brings to them and to us!
Last month I was filled with much hope during our annual FCAP Board Meeting. It was also a difficult meeting since it was the first Board Meeting without the physical presence of our dear brother, Captain Joe Ivey. However, hope prevails because we stand on the promise of God that Joe is with Jesus in Heaven. Hope prevails because Joe has left a legacy behind of Christians who are excited to share the Gospel in the airline and aviation workplace. Hope prevails as we listen to stories of new FCAP groups forming and former FCAP groups beginning to meet again.
Your financial donations and prayers are the backbone of this ministry and help make all of this hope possible. We know you have many worthy ministries you could support, so thank you for choosing FCAP. Because of your support, we can see God giving wisdom and strength to airline employees around the world. They can become like the angelic choir during the first Christmas. Others see their hope and it gives them an opportunity to tell them the reason for their hope is Jesus.
