January Prayer Alert from CEO Allen Speer

Dear Praying Friend,

Forty-eight hours from now, Agape Flight #1 of 2024 will be airborne, Lord-willing, laden with more than a ton of supplies for mission partners on the island of Hispaniola. God was faithful to help us complete 75 safe and successful mission flights in 2023, and we begin this new year in total dependence on Him.

I’d like to encourage you with this scripture today: “Let the message about Christ in all its richness fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.” (Colossians 3:16–17)

Will you join me in praying for these important milestones in 2024?

  1. 75 flights to the Bahamas, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic
  2. Initial flights to Honduras, as we come alongside potential new mission partners
  3. Eight Commerce Department approved flights to Cuba, carrying water filtration equipment and nonperishable food to assist Cuban mission partners
  4. A new Agape Flights aircraft hangar adjacent to our current facility

I also have a personal prayer request to share with you today: In late December, I was diagnosed with liver cancer. January is filling up with quickly arranged appointments and consultations. I am hopeful that I can receive a liver transplant. The evaluation period is 90 days, after which, if I qualify, I will then be placed on a waiting list.  During this 90-day period, I will be receiving treatment to stunt the growth of the liver tumors. Amid this storm, I am totally dependent on the Lord, “…my rock, my fortress and my deliverer.” (Psalm 18).  

Please pray that I will honor God during this time. And I would ask that you pray for my wife, Jennifer, our children, and our precious grandchildren.  

A dear friend recently sent me a collection of verses from the paraphrase, The Message, which reminds me of each of you. Please take a moment to scroll down and read these encouraging words beneath my signature, below.

Thank you for your prayers and your financial support over the past year. Please pray for me and pray for all that God has for Agape Flights in 2024!

In Christ,

Allen T. Speer, CEO  


“Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.” (Philippians 1:3-6, The Message)
