For five decades, Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) planes have been serving countless thousands of men, women and children, bringing medical care, emergency food, and Christian hope. In the places of deepest need they are serving as the air-arm of the church, enabling the work of aid and development agencies, missions, national churches and other local groups.
Using aircraft and electronic communication networks MAF overcomes barriers that isolate people from spiritual and physical help. These are remote places where flying is not a luxury but a lifeline. Operating over 130 aircraft from bases in 30 countries, today every three minutes, a MAF plane is taking off or landing somewhere in the world
Best selling author Irene Howat has compiled the accounts of MAF workers in the field and invites you to experience a week in their lives. Flying across deserts, jungles, mountains and swamps, be transported to some of the most inaccessible areas in the world with MAF employees who are giving hope to far-flung communities. From the Ecuadorian jungle to the wetlands of Bangladesh to the Mongolian plains prepare for take off on an exhilarating and eye opening journey that you will never forget.
"...this book invites you to join with the pilots, engineers, administrators, radio technicians and their families on a globe circling adventure with Mission Aviation Fellowship. You will experience the challenges of living in an undeveloped country where resourcefulness and creativity get the job done. You will join with indigenous Christians who literally had the Gospel brought to them "on wings from above"."
"The MAF journey that started around 60 years ago with committed pilots who had a vision to use their aviation skills for the Lord, continues today because of men and women like those you will read about in A Week in the Life of MAF, people who have given up comfort and security to give wings to the gospel.."
I am so grateful to Irene, and the many contributors, for being prepared and willing to risk saying it as it is and what it is really like to be a missionary in today's world - warts and all.'
