Welcome to... Englewood United Methodist Church
Jerry Wiley recently received an urgent request from Mexican pastors concerning famine among the Indians in southwest Mexico who have endured a 2 year drought.
In response, Mercy Wings organization flew from McAllen, Texas, where they are now headquartered, to an airport in Guadalajara where a shipment of much needed food was waiting.
There are no roads to where these hungry people live, but they do have an airstrip right in the middle of the village. It is only 900 feet long and dead-ends into a mountain, making it a dangerous one-way airstrip. Jerry Wiley, missionary and pilot, reports that it is quite a challenge!
The Mercy Wing’s Cessna 182 made 12 trips over 2 days delivering over 4 tons of corn, flour for tortillas, beans and feed for mules.
When the supplies were delivered the grateful people asked for prayer that they would receive rain as their fields are plowed and ready to plant. Without the rain they will suffer another year of hunger. These Indians live entirely off the land and depend on the blessing of rain before seed can be put into the ground.
The planes of Mercy Wings are also used to deliver Galcom Go-Ye solar powered radios into remote areas of Mexico. The EUMC Missions Committee is thankful to be able to contribute funds for aviation fuel. For more information go to wileyministries.org.
