haiti-flag-and-mapIt is a joy when we see airline people seize the ministry opportunities that come their way.  Recently several people within our FCAP family wholeheartedly embraced one such opportunity, specifically that of getting clothes to people in Haiti who were lost everything during a recent hurricane that ravaged parts of their country.  It all started when two FCAPers in Baton Rouge were offered a donation of new clothing from a business there if they could find a way to get the clothing to Haiti.  Initially it involved 40-50 boxes, but in the end turned out to be 233 boxes (maybe more).  What a blessing for the people in Haiti!  One of our Board members flew to Baton Rouge to help load and transport in a truck, which he drove back to the Atlanta.  One of our staff members took it from there in making arrangements for transport to and distribution in Haiti.  (He is originally from Haiti and will be personally accompanying the clothing to its final destination, which involves a rustic boat trip to a Haitian island.)

A number of obstacles have been encountered and several logistics still need to be worked out.   We ask for your prayers in that regard.  One of the logistics concerns the cost of shipping these to Haiti, which is several thousand dollars.  Most of that cost has been covered, but approximately $700 remains outstanding.  If you would like to contribute toward that cost, you can do so through FCAP … click DONATE TOWARD OUTREACH IN HAITI. Checks payable in U.S. dollars can also be mailed to FCAP, 136 Providence Road, Fayetteville, GA  30215.  (Be sure to note that the donation is for the “Haitian Outreach.”)
