Just to keep you up to date as to what is going on. I have not left my chair at the computer and phone for the last two days; with pilots & planes, contact people on ground in Haiti, DR. and Florida, Texas, Min. and trying to buy an engine for the airplane, plus raise money for all of the above.
I want to thank all of you for your generosity - you are making it happen.
NO.1 - The engine for the plane has been located and purchased. At a cost of $32,000.00 +,- ; and Don Wright is coming to help put it in. It should arrive in the Bahamas the first week of Feb and be on and running by the second week. We are trusting God that the money will be in by the end of the month. PRAY for a cloudy week but no rain - we will be working on the tar mac.
NO 2. - Relief efforts are still going forward for Haiti. We have three airplanes that will be leaving OpaLocka FL early Monday morning loaded headed for Santa Domingo, DR. From there we will make 45 min. shuttle flights back and forth into Haiti, as many a day as we can, taking supplies from the DR.
Tuesday a fourth plane will join us and mid Feb a fifth plane will join us. In the middle of all that I will take time out to get my plane back in the air.
There is much to do and it is very costly. We are trying to be as efficient as possible by staying in the DR and buying supplies there. WE NEED MONEY AND PRAYERS
Rest assured what we are doing is getting to the little people in need and we are doing good. It is helping and making a difference.
You won't see us in the film footage on TV but we are there.
There just isn't room to tell all the stories and they may never get told. I am weeping as I write this as the needs are soooooo great.
Funds should be sent to
