2019 Summer Time started with a great meeting in May with Mr. Happy a local Air Traffic Controller from Orlando holding a question and answer session as our special guest!
In June we welcomed Tony Vermillion, President of the Tennessee Chapter of Pilots for Christ International, who gave us an update of the missionary work SAMI is supporting at Ragged Island, Bahamas by providing use of our fleet of planes and missionary mechanics.
July our new member Ram and his finance used their gifts of hospitality to set up and cook a great BBQ lunch after we heard great news from a young adult missionary who served two years in Israel and is now back in the states doing great things for our local area!
Our aviation ministry circle of friends spans the globe but is small and sincere prayer is the answer for many of our challenges. Thank you for your generous prayer support, acts of mercy and justice, contributions to our ministry and others. THANK YOU THANK YOU for every single dollar that was given to meet this massive love gift goal for Ashley + the girls the family of Luke Sullivan who did not have life insurance in place before he died serving as a missionary pilot and A&P in Guatemala. Please continue to pray for this family and the co-pilot Bruce VanFleet who continues to recover.
Our cooler Florida weather is just around the corner! After the month of September our busy season of sharing God’s Love and our Ministry at Air Shows, and special events such as Young Eagle’s Day in Merritt Island will begin, while we continue training missionary pilots and participating in missions. Since our 172 Remod is complete, great opportunities are ahead of us as our Lord provides! Our talented member Gloria has created aviation themed aprons and totes to help us raise funds for Servant Air Ministry. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to make a purchase and receive these items.
We hope you can attend a monthly meeting one day and membership to our chapter includes membership in Pilots for Christ! We hope you will join us by getting involved .
Please note our monthly meetings take place on the second Saturday and our August meeting is this Saturday August 10th with SAMI president emeritus Bob Lehton. SAMI’s website and Facebook page contain times and chapel/hanger address for the meeting. Thank you for bringing a dish to share while we fellowship during our BBQ and funds to keep our ministry focused on serving through aviation.
We pray your 2019 Summer is marked with a closer walk with our Lord.
