Wheels Up

After much planning and prayer, Brian left for Haiti. The jet was wheels up from Ft. Pierce at 0900. The crew and supplies made it safely to Port-Au-Prince. One small delay in Provo allowed us to see the generosity of that small town. Jesse from Mother's Pizza donated pizza for the plane. The two people Sandra and Dayana delivered the pizzas. They were so excited to help out, doing what they could with what they had to help their neighbors.

The goal is to secure a safe location for the helicopters and crew and if all goes well two helicopters will leave out on Thursday.

There are three companies that made this trip possible. The owners and pilots of Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs racing donated the use of their jets and Palm Beach County Heath Care District Trauma Hawk Division approved Brian's request for an extended leave so that he can coordinate operations from Haiti.

It is inspiring to see everyone doing their part to bring hope to the people of Haiti.

Please pray for all the volunteers helping in Haiti, the safety of the aircraft and crews and for God's name to be glorified as we demonstrate the hands and feet of Jesus.
