FLAPS Moody Ministry

E-Mail:

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON
Moody, with the mission aviation community's partnership, is doing what it can to hold down the cost of training to students.  Some grant and scholarship funds are currently available through Moody Bible Institute, but not enough to significantly offset student costs for aviation program training.  It is with this in view that the FLAPS program was created.  FLAPS is funded by donations which allows students who successfully complete the application process to "borrow" funds for training costs during the final two, most costly years of the BS MAT program.  If the student begins serving with a mission within two years of graduation, the loaned funds begin to be "forgiven" at a monthly rate equal to a typical loan payment.  Should the student not begin missionary service, the loan becomes due and payable as a traditional low-interest loan.

GHANA
In May of 2007, IAP began a children's home project in Northwestern Ghana.  The main goal of the project was to create safe housing for 36 children from four villages surrounding Sawla, Ghana, Africa.  The Sawla Children's Home has become a unique entity in the fact that it is totally supported from contributed funds from donors within the United States.  The home now houses 38 children ranging in age from 5 to 17 years old.  The children all have the opportunity to attend school, have regular meals and participate in a structured home life.  Some of the older children had not had an opportunity to attend school.  They have been tutored and some have been able to skip grades to accommodate their excelled learning ability.  Those who will be able to attend high school will now have an opportunity to do so.  Their teachers no longer consider them "orphans," but speak of them as "children from the children's home," "good students" and "role models for the other students."
