I SEE GOD AT WORK

“Serving with the mission team in Haiti transforms your heart in ways you can not fully expect. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to share God's love with these beautiful souls.” 

 

This morning we took off on our way down to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to deliver regularly scheduled cargo to our missionaries. We anticipated providing assistance as an air bridge for Mission Aviation Fellowship and Samaritan’s Purse between Port-au-Prince and Les Cayes.

After landing in Port-au-Prince, MFI pilots connected with medical personnel that needed to get to Les Cayes. It did not take long to begin filling needs, but the work continued.

Our first departure from Les Cayes to Port-au-Prince had 19 passengers. Two of those passengers were on stretchers. The pilots shared that many injured on board were screaming and wailing in pain. And as the day came to a close, our pilots have shared that they are exhausted.

Samaritan’s Purse arrived in Port-au-Prince with 50,000 pounds of supplies. We are assisting them as they need in the coming days transporting personnel, supplies, and possibly their mobile tent hospital.

Tropical Storm Grace does appear to be creating complications as it nears the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Our pilots are planning to return with the DC-3 on Monday evening and then we hope to return with two planes to continue the efforts on Wednesday.

HOW YOU CAN HELP >>>

MFI is not requesting donated items at this time. We are on the ground in Port-au-Prince and are finding a greater need to fly supplies as an air bridge for Samaritan’s Purse and other organizations that need to get items to people in need. It is also possible that items needed in the future will be able to be purchased in Port-au-Prince.

PRAY.  Pray for the people of Haiti, many of them know someone that has been affected by the earthquake. Again, many of them felt the tremors associated with this earthquake.  Pray for our pilots that are transporting supplies and people in the air bridge between Port-au-Prince and Les Cayes (Ray Oostdyk, Ryan Anders, and Kevin Epps).  Pray for men and women sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ as they meet humanitarian needs.

MAKING A FINANCIAL DONATION >>>

The MFI Disaster Relief Fund is for moments like these where we need to immediately respond by providing logistical transportation. Also, through our connection with affiliated missionaries, we work to assess needs and provide assistance.

The MFI Aircraft Fund makes the response to these needs possible as we keep our aircraft maintained through the purchase of necessary parts and the expenses that come through costly repairs. Right now, we have a third DC-3 that is being refurbished. The expansion of our fleet of planes would increase our ability to respond.

Please prayerfully consider how the Lord would have you donate today. To make a financial donation, please visit www.missionaryflights.org/give
