Chieftain/Haiti Riot


A letter of thanksgiving from Agape Flights CEO Allen Speer, May 12, 2021:

Dear Agape Flights Family,

The outpouring of love and support since the March 29, 2022 abduction and destruction of Agape Flights aircraft, N600AB, in Les Cayes, Haiti, has been overwhelming. 

From near and far, we have received telephone calls, voicemails, letters and notes, text messages and emails from faithful friends and new acquaintances, all with the same message:

“What was meant for evil, God will turn for good and His Glory!”

Just six weeks ago this past Tuesday, this tragic incident took place. In the first few weeks, without asking, you, our amazing donors, began sending designated gifts for the replacement aircraft –> gifts totaling $141,000! That amount + a full insurance payout of $300,000 = $441,000…THANK YOU!

During this time period, Agape Flights was also privileged to participate in The Giving Challenge. This amazing event, organized by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and The Patterson Foundation greatly encourages non-profits like Agape Flights in promoting generosity by matching funds. This year, Agape Flights was blessed with over $200,000 dollars given through the generosity of over 961 donors with matching donations through The Patterson Foundation in a 24-hour period. 

Two weeks following the plane incident in Haiti, Faith Life Church located in Branson, Missouri and Sarasota Florida, contacted Agape Flights committing $600,000 dollars in partnership. This amount would not only help to replace the aircraft but also help to find a suitable upgrade to expand and enhance our service to mission partners throughout the nations of the Caribbean.

This past Tuesday, six weeks to the day, during the Agape Flights staff meeting I challenged our staff to intentionally pray and believe that God is faithful. I then read these verses from Ephesians 3:20-21.  It says,

20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

And now for the rest of the story…

Later in the afternoon on Tuesday, May 9th, a representative of Faith Life Church stopped by the Agape Flights hangar. Sitting together in my office, he handed me an envelope with three checks written to Agape Flights. As I opened the envelope, he reminded me of the church’s commitment, but then he said these words, “But God who is faithful did much more than we could ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”  He also stated that Pastor Moore had communicated this opportunity with the Faith Life family for three weeks and donations were from thousands of people who had responded. The amount committed was $600,000, however when the three checks were tallied the amount given was 1 MILLION DOLLARS!  This gift is the most generous single gift donated to Agape Flights in our 42-year history.  To God Be the Glory!

When all of this adds up, we have a $1.6-million-dollar miracle from God! And all I can say is, thanks to every donor, to Pastor Keith and Phyllis Moore and the Faith Life Church family, and most of all, “Glory to God!”  God is Faithful!

Will you join us in praising God and celebrating this incredible news?  WOW! 

God is so faithful and we are so thankful,

Allen Speer
