An Amazing Door Just Opened Into Pakistan!! - Air Mobile - going to "Hard to Reach Places"!
October 25, 2005 - 3:53PM (EST)Titusville, FL - Air Mobile HQ - Report submitted by Joe Hurston
Hurricane Wilma came through Florida yesterday so fast and did serious damage and regrettably several lives were lost. Yet it could have been so much worse. So many heeded the evacuation order. Even with good preparation, Officials are struggling to get relief in quickly.
Last night I received an amazing call from Dan Carpenter, President of World in Need (W.I.N.). A tremendous door just opened in Pakistan for us to get to the hardest to reach areas following the 7.8 earthquake (the worst disaster in Pakistani history). Death toll will likely exceed 100,000 Over 3,000,000 survivors are in dire jeopardy and help is needed immediately.
Both Dan and I sensed that NOW is the time for us to head to Pakistan. A long story short....we are flying to Pakistan tomorrow evening (Wednesday, October 26th)! We knew that we needed one more team member quickly. Earlier in the day, while Hurricane Wilma was racing through Florida, my dear friend, Joe Polozola had called. Nearly 30 years ago, Joe introduced me to Jesus. Well, I called Joe back last night and asked him if he would consider coming to Pakistan with us. His immediate answer, Yes, he would pray about it. By this morning, Joe and I met. He's joining us! Wow, our team came together just like that.
Today has been jammed with all the details that usually would be spread over a couple of days or even weeks. Visas, tickets, thermal underwear, extra satellite phone, beef jerky, etc. etc. Tomorrow afternoon we depart for Pakistan with at least 7 Vortex Voyagers TM! Our goal is simple, deploy the Vortex Voyagers TM to relieve helicopters from flying bottled water. The helicopters can then fly food, tents, blankets. Winter is coming. Help is so desperately needed there. We need your help to assist us in this LIFE SAVING mission!
While our Air Mobile Team is in Pakistan, another Air Mobile Team headed by Christian Hurston will be preparing to deploy 20 Vortex Voyagers TM in Haiti. We are so thankful that we have the capability to reach so many "Hard to Reach Places"!! We could not do this without your help!!
We'll do our best to communicate with you from Pakistan. PLEASE remember us in your prayer. God Bless!!
