Agape Flights staff members return home from Haiti

VENICE – Five staff members and two volunteers affiliated with Agape Flights returned safely from Haiti Saturday.

The group was never in danger and was busy helping build a roof on a church in Bedzimel, Haiti, on March 29, when Agape Flights CEO Allen Speer received a text that their airplane, a twin-engine Piper Navajo Chieftain was destroyed by demonstrators at the Les Cayes airport in the south-central part of the country.

“We were never in harm’s way in any way, shape or form,” Speer said in a telephone interview Monday afternoon.

After consulting with both his friend, Phillipe Bayard, director of Sunrise Airways, and the airport director at Les Cayes, Speer and the Agape group moved to Jeremie, on the northern coast in western Haiti.
