A Testimony…Comfort in Tragedy

A TESTIMONY … COMFORT IN TRAGEDY

We received this testimony from a longtime FCAP member, who gave us permission to share her story anonymously.

She wished to tell you all about the support she has received and continues receiving from friends in the Lord and through relationships with other FCAP members. (Praise the Lord.)

As for the background of this testimony, this sweet friend recently lost her adult son tragically, to suicide. She reminded us that Scripture says the Lord shakes the heavens, like an earthquake, …and there are aftershocks.  In the subsequent weeks, there have been a lot of breakdowns in her family… aftershocks.

“For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.” Haggai 2:6-7, KJV

And for the testimony itself:

Following her family’s tragedy and loss of a loved one, God has provided her with the comfort of His Holy Spirit.  This has come in the form of many FCAP friends reaching out to meet with her in person (being from different backgrounds and doctrines) in unity.  These individuals have been the body of Christ to her in extraordinary circumstances and have reached out to her recently for fellowship:

  • A Flight Attendant from Mexico, on a layover, called to meet her for lunch.
  • An airline employee in India set her alarm clock for 3am just to spend time chatting with her.
  • A pilot from AMS (Amsterdam) used to have MIA (Miami) layovers once every three years is now working trips frequently, with MIA overnights, and calling to meet with her and pray with her.
  • Even when quarantined, she received calls from FCAPers in the UK and Lima, Peru to check on her well-being.

“The body, Jesus Christ’s body, moves.”  Once again, this dear lady wished to affirm “how the Lord has encouraged me over the years through the people of FCAP even through distance and time.”

We thank God for the ways he is working in our sister’s life even through the darkest of nights, bringing her into a new dawn and closer walk with Him, using the faithful believers within our Fellowship of Christian Airline Personnel.
