“I want to say thank you so very much once again for helping me and my congregation express the love of God toward His people in this time of deepest need. Many persons have been displaced and have lost everything.”
– Pastor Rudolph Roberts, International Faith Ministries, Freeport, Bahamas
All of this is made possible by…amazing generosity.
An overwhelming response from individuals, community groups, churches, and businesses have provided a full hangar of donated relief supplies and funds so that we can respond well. We anticipate 9-10 additional relief flights to deliver the remaining collected supplies of our Phase 1 relief efforts.
Based on the information gathered when Agape CEO, Allen Speer makes an additional assessment trip, we will formulate and share plans for our Phase 2 relief efforts to help restore lives and rebuild communities in the Bahamas.
For many years prior to the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian,
Agape Flights has delivered supplies and support to the Bahamas.
We are there now. We will be there months and years from now.
September 13, 2019 Phase 1 Relief UPDATE
Hurricane Dorian Ministry Action Response
THANK YOU for your tremendous generosity and outpouring of love for the Bahamas relief efforts. It’s been a busy two weeks at the hangar receiving items, sorting, coordinating, flying, and delivering hope. We couldn’t do it without YOU! Phase 1 of our relief efforts continues to be a success.
Even after continuous full flights to the Bahamas we are looking at an extremely full hangar (you all are AMAZING!) That being said, we are currently at capacity for Phase 1 relief item donations and will no longer be accepting donated supplies until further notice.
Agape will continue to fly relief supplies and deliver them to trusted mission partners on the ground in the Bahamas who are assuring they get into needed hands and homes. Although we are no longer seeking item donations, we do still need your help because we are in this for the long haul….
How you can help:
- PRAY with us – We believe in the power of prayer and the people in the Bahamas (including our mission partners) need our prayers. Also, please join us in prayer for Agape volunteers, staff, and aircraft – all are working extremely hard right now and could use your prayers and encouragement.
- FUEL the flights - Each round trip relief flight to the Bahamas costs $2,500 in fuel. Will you help us fuel flights filled with love, hope, and encouragement to the Bahamas?
- Stay tuned – Continue to check the Agape website and Facebook for updates, news, and needs. We will post our Phase 2 needs list after receiving further direction from partners on the ground in the Bahamas.
