...
Allan M. Gathercoal, the president and founder of Flying Doctors of America, will make you rethink your life as he tells you about his.
Saying he began the Flying Doctors "on a wing and a prayer" Gathercoal's passion and enthusiasm for his ministry is evident.
It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who said, "nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm". It is Gathercoal, and his Flying Doctors of America, who are living proof that is true.
...
Samoa News caught up with Dr. Gathercoal and his lovely Peruvian wife LizMarcela this past weekend at Ta'alolo Lodge, where they are busy meeting with doctors and directors, as well as coordinating their next several trips, including the trip to American Samoa this summer.
Gathercoal revealed a past riddled with irony; he had been a soldier in Viet Nam "dedicated to destroying"- yet he wound up here, a minister, medically trained, and a pilot, dedicated to healing.
How did this transformation take place? Gathercoal stated without hesitation, "God interrupts people's lives."
While Gathercoal was working on obtaining his hours and certification for a pilot's license in Viet Nam, Nixon began to wind down the war. Several flight schools were closing, and Gathercoal found himself searching for a place to finish his tour of duty.
...
Gathercoal left the army believing he wanted to go into medicine. Working at Loma Linda Emergency room while taking pre-med classes at Cal State, he left that to go into active ministry. Eventually, he would build a church, earn graduate degrees in Psychology and Theology, and obtain a doctorate from Columbia Theological Seminary.
In 1996 he received the "Vision of Race Unity Award" an honor bestowed by the Baha'i community on those who fight prejudice in our world. He has also pioneered businesses and educational programs, and taught Leadership Development at Emory University.
...
Said Gathercoal, "the whole kernel- the idea for the Flying Doctors- really came from the Bible. As Christians, we are called to care for the less fortunate. To be a Christian and be indifferent to suffering is anathema ... it is simply not possible."
That was 35 years ago, and looking back, Gathercoal said, he realized that at each turn, the hand of Providence was there.
FLYING TO AMERICAN SAMOA
The FDoA plan their calendars years in advance. What put American Samoa on their calendar was the question posed to Gathercoal, who is himself trained in emergency medicine.
...
In 2008 Amata called Dr. Gathercoal (who was on a medical mission at the time) and since then, they have kept in touch by email.
...
Dr. Gathercoal and his wife Liz have flown down at their own expense to see how they can help us, and they have scheduled us in for August.
"This is FDoA's introduction to the South Pacific region and we're hoping they will make this an annual medical mission," she noted.
Gathercoal, whose medical ministry includes a roster of 4500 MDs, 1500 dentists, 1500 RNs, Physician's Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practitioners to call upon- along with about 1500 support staff (Chiropractors, pharmacists, and medical technicians)- is considering establishing American Samoa as a Flying Doctors of America base for the South Pacific region.
