MMP for May: Agape Flights
After witnessing the devastating poverty and falling in love with the Haitian people, Agape founders stepped out in faith, mortgaged their home, bought Agape’s first plane, and began flying essential supplies to a few missionaries in Haiti. Choosing “Agape,” the Greek word for God’s unconditional love, to represent the core of this multi-denominational Christian aviation ministry, Agape Flights, literally translated means, “God’s Love Flights.” Today, nearly 40 years later, Agape Flights serves the weekly mail and cargo needs of over 300 missionary affiliates through 7 regular airport locations in Haiti, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, and delivers humanitarian aid into Cuba as regulations allow.
Equipped with the resources they need and God’s amazing love, missionaries can actively share the love of Christ through agriculture, athletics, clean water and community resources, education, evangelism and discipleship, home and church construction, medical and dental care, micro-enterprise opportunities, orphan care, and vocational training. Our vision is that missionaries will never lack the resources to share the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
Imagine…You are living in Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. You are less than 800 miles from Venice, Florida, and yet a world away. And then… Agape Flights delivers hundreds of pounds of medical supplies to you just in time for the visiting medical teams you are expecting. As told by missionary affiliate, Gladys Mungo, “The first team came in February and we went to the remote mountains of Grande Anse/Pestel and out to the remote islands. We were slammed. With only two doctors we treated 1,265 people and distributed about 100 pairs of glasses, (we performed) a few minor surgeries and nebulizer treatments. The March team met the same needs. We treated 400 -500 people a day in the remote villages in Grande Anse. We went in as far as we could and the people came down from the higher mountains on donkeys.”

Thank you. Your prayerful and financial support is literally the wind beneath our wings.
