“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
And He did infinitely more than anything we could imagine at SOS Amazonas! From January 15th to March 1st, 2021, the Mission of Heaven developed the project to serve Manaus and the countryside of the state of Amazonas with necessary actions in combating the Covid-19 wave. We made many partnerships and acted in various ways so that the necessary logistics were implemented, and the demands were facilitated. The feasibility of transporting equipment, the transfer of critically ill patients through the Air ICU, in addition to a great dedication to the organization and distribution of donated oxygen cylinders purchased with the funds raised, were some of the actions in focus.
R$167,800.00 were donated by people from all over the world! And that amount was fully used to pay for gas for the cars to transport oxygen cylinders and to also donate food baskets and medicines. God gave us exactly the amount we needed. Similarly, the fuel bought was also used in air transport trips to fuel and deliver cylinders in the most affected regions of the State, especially those with difficult access by river or road transport. Your donation reached places like Parintins, Japurá, Barreirinha, Nhamundá and Maués, supplying families and saving lives. With the grace of God, we served people with the Air ICU, taking them to hospitals that could receive and treat them in other regions of Brazil.
Our team was intensely engaged, following the entire prevention and care protocol for Covid-19, even with the risk of contamination for us. It was the exercise of loving your neighbor as yourself in an essential and emergency way! Therefore, we sincerely thank you who somehow got involved and helped us in this mission. We saw that the works of the children of God resulted in His glory, so that all peoples may adore Him. To God be the glory! Mission of Heaven taking the Gospel further!
