We welcomed back Linda Davies accompanied by her colleague Roger to tell us more about the work of Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF). Linda delivered a very informative presentation with lots of photos and included some videos with personal testimony. The Bible passage to accompany the presentation was from Luke 7 v 11-23 – so apt!

Working in partnership with hundreds of other Christian and relief organisations, MAF enables practical help, physical healing and spiritual hope to be delivered to some of the world’s most remote and inaccessible communities. They work in 25 countries, operating 115 planes and serving 1000 destinations. Their pilots and personnel deliver relief workers, doctors, surgeons, dentists, vets, missionaries, Bibles, school books, food, medicines – everything that can only be safely and speedily transported by air.

Travel by road is just impractical as road systems are poor and little more than dirt tracks. These can be bumpy and uncomfortable for ill patients or become impassable during the rainy season and stranded trucks are vulnerable to bandits and deterioration of precious supplies.  What would be a 36 hour road trip in some cases can be achieved in a 1 hour flight! 

They believe that every community, however remote, should have the essentials for life and their vision is to see isolated people changed by the love of Christ. They provide access, save lives, transform lives and provide hope for a better future.
