From Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Paul Zydbel came to Camp Symonette for the first time for the 5th Biannual Fly-In and Help-Out October 30-November 2, 2009.
For nearly 3 years, Bahamas Habitat has offered the opportunity that Paul took. Paul answered the invitation, served and made an incredible impact. Flying between the islands of Eleuthera, Nassau, Andros, almost to Bimini until the weather turned uncooperative, all within 5 days, his Cessna 182 did not stay on the ground much during his time in the Bahamas!
When he wasn’t flying Paul assisted with nearly completing a roof project in one day, a project that’s cost decreased dramatically with Paul’s donation of time and service for transportation needs.
Having the opportunity of more feasible transportation, Abraham and Methodist Habitat were able to make many connections that led to the donation of regularly needed building materials and supplies.
The boost to the ministry of Bahamas Methodist Habitat during the week of Paul’s generous service is still felt. In Paul’s words reflecting on his experience flying for Bahamas Habitat:
The private plane allowed a quick change of plans to further the work of Bahamas Habitat saving, in my opinion, considerable time and money. Travel in the Bahamas benefits from a private airplane. In my opinion there are three important advantages: 1.Time is saved. 2. Money for travel is saved. 3. Mission project timelines are faster.
We depend on volunteers such as Paul to make the greatest impact that we can in lives in the Bahamas and those who come. Will you take the opportunity to fly for Bahamas Habitat as Paul did and plans to do again?
