On Saturday, September 21, Missionary Flights (MFI) will stop our solicitation of supplies for the Bahamas. We are reaching max capacity in our warehouse and are working to fly the items that we have been blessed with as fast as we can. We are also working to get the majority of the donated goods onto a local barge that will make a large delivery to groups and ministries we are working with in Freeport.
Missionary Flights will continue to receive goods from our partners who have been collecting around the State.
There are still ways to continue to serve the Bahamas! One of the easiest ways to meet the future needs in the Bahamas is to make monetary donations toward the Disaster Relief fund at Missionary Flights. As affiliated groups and churches look to help rebuild their communities, the monetary donations that we receive will help to meet those needs.
While Missionary Flights is not organizing relief groups, we have been bringing in small work teams for affiliated missions that are actively working to rebuild on the ground in the Bahamas. For the safety of those seeking to volunteer on the ground in the Bahamas, we are stressing that a team must have a connection with a ministry or organization that is able to both feed, house, and provide transportation for the group. For more questions about teams seeking to travel during this relief effort, please visit the Missionary Flights website at www.missionaryflights.org/relief.
