Good news. We have our AOC (Air Operator Certificate) from the FAA. This certificate is a big step for our organization and will help many programs that are having trouble with their permissions. Will it help us? At this point, we are not sure. It gives us more legitimacy and hopefully more options. The bad news is that we still don’t have flight permissions. Back in June, we had understood that an AOC would be enough but now it seems that is not the case. Pray that we will have clear direction soon. Pray for our director as he continues to work on our behalf to obtain the flight permissions. Pray for our team that we will persevere and stay faithful to the tasks God sends us each day.
This morning as I was listening to a devotional on Exodus 3 from Proverbs 31 ministries, the speaker, Whitney Capps said, “Wrap your heart around the consistency of God’s character not the consistency of your circumstances.” This quote reminded me that in the midst of this roller coaster year, God is still God. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The challenge is living that out in the every day no matter what is going on around me.
Thank you for your prayers and support. Teresa
